On my 12.2 KDE box I am planning to use a virtual product and
after findingseveral help sites on howto install e.g virtualbox I started
wondering aboutthe availability of a virtualbox in Yast.
Why should I go to the Oracle website as suggested in a howto,
if Yast offersme an installation. Is it not complete and do I need anything
else?
Went to Yast and installed virtualbox with the idea that
openSUSE would giveme a workable piece of software. But now I am stuck as I
have
no idea how tobegin. Where is the documentation for the Suse virtualbox?


There is effectively no difference between the Oracle package and the
openSUSE repo installed version.

What problems are you having? You install it.. you start it... you
install your gues operating systems into it. It is VERY easy to use,
and very intuitive. If you need VirtualBox documentation, then look
at http://www.VirtualBox.org There are no special tweaks for openSUSE
(that I've noticed) other than the convenience of managing it through
YaST.
