PureOS 3 and Virtualbox


#1

Can PureOS 3 be installed onto Virtualbox?
Thank you


#2

Short answer: yes.


#3

I’m actually having a hard time getting it to work on VirtualBox. Is there something I need to do or look out for when trying to install?


#4

Is there any error report or something? You can try here: https://wiki.debian.org/VirtualBox

This system is not currently set up to build kernel modules (system extensions).
Running the following commands should set the system up correctly:

apt-get install linux-headers-4.12.0-1-amd64
(The last command may fail if your system is not fully updated.)
apt-get install linux-headers-amd64

With

apt-get install linux-headers-4.12.0-1-amd64

I get an error saying no package found with the regular expression linux-headers-4.12.0-1-amd64


#6

Any news?

Make sure to run sudo apt update before trying to install.


#7

No did not investigate further. I did sudo apt-get update.


#8

It is working now. :slight_smile:
