|00:01||Welcome to the spoken tutorial on Installing VirtualBox on Ubuntu Linux OS.|
|00:09||In this tutorial, we will learn to install VirtualBox on Ubuntu Linux 16.04 Operating System.|
|00:18||This tutorial is recorded using: Ubuntu Linux 16.04 OS,|
|00:25||VirtualBox version 5.2,|
|00:29||gedit text editor.|
|00:32||However, you may use any text editor of your choice.|
|00:37||Before we begin, please make sure that you are connected to the internet.|
|00:43|| What is VirtualBox?
VirtualBox is a free and open source software for Virtualization.
|00:50||It allows us to install and use multiple OS in the base machine i.e. host.|
|00:57||The base machine can have either Windows, Linux or MacOS.|
|01:03||To install an OS inside a VirtualBox, the base machine should have the following configuration.|
|01:11||i3 processor or higher,|
|01:14||Ram 4GB or higher,|
|01:17||Hard disk free space 50GB or more and|
|01:22||Virtualization should be enabled on BIOS.|
|01:27||This will ensure that the VirtualBox will work smoothly.|
|01:32||In case the base machine has Ubuntu Linux OS, then it should be any one of the following versions:|
|01:40||Ubuntu Linux 14.04, Ubuntu Linux 16.04 or Ubuntu Linux 18.04.|
|01:50||Let us start the installation.|
|01:53||The commands used in this tutorial are available in the Code Files link, below the player.|
|02:00||I have opened this file in gedit text editor on my machine.|
|02:05||And, I will use the same file to copy-paste the commands during the demonstration.|
|02:11||Important note: Before installing VirtualBox, we have to ensure that Virtualization is enabled on our machine.|
|02:21||Let us verify if Virtualization is enabled or not.|
|02:26||Open the terminal by pressing Ctrl, Alt and T keys simultaneously on your keyboard.|
|02:35|| Copy this command from the code file and paste it in the terminal.
Press Enter to execute.
|02:43||If the output has vmx flags then Virtualization is enabled on this computer.|
|02:50||If it is not enabled, kindly enable it in BIOS settings.|
|02:55||As the BIOS settings vary from computer to computer, we cannot show a demo of the same.|
|03:02||If you are not a technical person, kindly do this with the help of a System Administrator.|
|03:09||If the option Virtualization is not available in the BIOS then we cannot install VirtualBox in that machine.|
|03:17||In my case, it is already enabled.|
|03:21||First, let us update the base machine with the help of the following command.|
|03:27|| For that, on the terminal, type: sudo <space> apt-get <space> update
Then press Enter.
|03:38|| You may be prompted to enter your system password.
Type the password and press Enter.
|03:46||From now on, type the system password whenever prompted, during this installation and press Enter.|
|03:55|| Next let us install VirtualBox.
Now we have to add the VirtualBox repository to the Ubuntu source list.
|04:04|| To do so, copy this command and paste on the terminal.
Then press Enter.
|04:11||Next, we have to add the VirtualBox repository key to the apt source.|
|04:17|| To do so, copy these two commands one by one.
Paste them on the terminal and press Enter.
|04:32||Now, we have to update the repository list.|
|04:36|| For that, type on the terminal, sudo <space> apt-get <space> update
Then press Enter.
|04:50|| Next, type: sudo space apt-get space install space virtualbox-5.2
And press Enter.
|05:04||The terminal will display the list of packages to be installed,|
|05:09||file size to be downloaded from the internet and the disk space usage after the installation.|
|05:17||When asked, “Do you want to continue?”, type Y and then press Enter.|
|05:23||The installation may take some time depending on your internet speed.|
|05:31||The installation is completed now.|
|05:34||Now, go to Dash home. In the search bar, type Virtualbox.|
|05:42||Now double-click on the Oracle VM VirtualBox icon.|
|05:47||VirtualBox application opens. This indicates that the installation is successful.|
|05:54|| With this, we come to the end of this tutorial.
Let us summarize.
|05:59|| In this tutorial, we have learnt to: check if Virtualization is enabled and
install VirtualBox in Ubuntu Linux 16.04 OS.
