I've attemted to run virtualbox on many Pups, with proper devx's and kernel headers, to no avail.

Could anyone provide a current working method?

Thanks in advance.

What Puppy do you want to use?

What are you trying to get it to work?

My method is:

Download and install DEVX & Kernel headers for your Pup of choice
Download VirtualBox .run file from:

Quote:
All distributions (built on EL5 and therefore do not require recent system libraries) i386 AMD64


at this address:

https://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/Linux_Downloads

Put the .run file into a convenient place. I like to rename it to vbox.run for convenience
Enter a terminal in that directory - right click in ROX filer - window - new terminal
type:
Code:
./vbox.run


It should work from there. Most pups I've tried install a menu entry under system
