Project ID: 4462


For testing latest versions of VirtualBox for Fedora and epel7. The project starts on Fedora 23 but is available for latest branches .

Warning: Time to time use dnf distro-sync to be sure that you are using last version, copr is also a place where in test my builds , so I often do builds without bump the release.

Installation Instructions

dnf copr enable sergiomb/vboxfor23

on epel7

cd /etc/yum.repos.d/ wget

In host (the master):

dnf install VirtualBox kernel-devel-$(uname -r) akmod-VirtualBox akmods-shutdown systemctl restart vboxdrv dmesg | grep -i vbox

or In a vm guest system , Since Fedora 28 you got virtualBox-guest-additions working out of the box on Fedora proper , package is virtualBox-guest-additions all with lowercase, so just do dnf install virtualBox-guest-additions in a vm (guest system). For epel 7 and 8 we still have VirtualBox-guest-additions on RPM Fusion.

If you want run Fedora in a vm, you may/should install !virtualBox-guest-additions. this replaces VBoxGuestAdditions provide by Oracle

RPM Fusion doesn't provide VBoxGuestAdditions for others OS , you have to download it , you have a button for that in VirtualBox, vm manager menu.

dnf install VirtualBox-guest-additions kernel-devel-$(uname -r) systemctl restart vboxservice dmesg

in dmesg you should see kernel modules loaded:

dmesg | grep -i vbox [ 2870.556703] vboxdrv: module verification failed: signature and/or required key missing - tainting kernel [ 2870.565213] vboxdrv: Found 2 processor cores [ 2870.571315] vboxdrv: fAsync=0 offMin=0x1c2 offMax=0xa5f [ 2870.671515] vboxdrv: TSC mode is Synchronous, tentative frequency 3000795689 Hz [ 2870.671519] vboxdrv: Successfully loaded version 5.0.6_ (interface 0x00240000) [ 2870.671946] VBoxNetFlt: Successfully started.
