Dunno .. how did you install Virtualbox ?

As a matter of interest, what's the output from:
Code: [Select]
cat /proc/cpuinfo | grep flags
and
Code: [Select]
dpkg -l | grep virtualbox

Code: [Select]
apt-get install qemu-kvm qemu-utils virt-manager libvirt-bin

This should import everything you need.
Once done, you should have "virt-manager" in your menus.

@Mad Penguin
Is it OK to install it BEFORE uninstalling the other one I have got installed?
when I install it and then uninstall the other one, it won't remove anything that is needed?

To uninstall VirtualBox:
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get remove --purge virtualbox-4.2

Then if you wish delete the "Virtualbox" directory from your Home directory.



BTW, your CPU does not support hardware accelerated virtualisation.

Which architecture of Mint 13 MATE were you trying to install in VirtualBox ? .. 32 or 64bit ?

They may not coexist, however I'm not aware of any specific reason why you can't have them both installed ... (??)

My mistake .. after going through your CPU flags again I've spotted svm .. so your AMD CPU DOES support hardware accelerated virtualisation.

Then VirtualBox will be uninstalled like you asked ?

MP has covered the installation of KVM.

S what "bit" do you consider missing ?

The bit in BOLD in my last post...

'Then if you wish delete the "Virtualbox" directory from your Home directory.'

...I do what?

You say what to do to 'uninstall' but then go on to say something else without finishing...

I can't see what else I could add to that .. if you want to, go into your "Home" directory and delete the directory called "Virtualbox" ???

You can't seriously be telling me that after all this time you don't know what a "directory" is, or where your "Home" directory is ???

I might be wrong but is it possible the confusion here might be like me pooky is wondering why there should be a "Virtualbox" directory in his home folder AFTER it's been completely un-installed (--purge)

If you can keep your head while all around are losing theirs, then you're not quite grasping the situation

That's <partly> why I am asking the question

Sorry Mark, I have just re-read the line I put in BOLD

'Then if you wish delete the "Virtualbox" directory from your Home directory.'

and just before I read that, that's when I first saw your post;

'You can't seriously be telling me that after all this time you don't know what a "directory" is, or where your "Home" directory is ???'

You know how your mind sometimes 'fills in the blanks', well, I saw 'Then if you wish to delete the "Virtualbox"....',  I was expecting some more instructions.

You should have put;
'Then if you wish, delete the "Virtualbox" directory from your Home directory.'
                          ^

Sorry for all the confusion, I just wanted to be sure of all the steps before I did anything to remove the Virtualbox from my PC.

I followed MP's instructions to install the 'other' VM
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install qemu-kvm qemu-utils virt-manager libvirt-bin

To which, I get:-

@ Emegra

The Virtualbox directory in your Home directory is where any created VM's will have been saved (by default) .. these VM's won't be removed, even by a "purge" of vitualbox .. purge will just uninstall virtualbox and its configuration files, NOT any VM's you created .. in the same way you wouldn't expect a purge of LibreOffice to delete any documents you created with it ;)

@ Pooky

OK I'm no English professor, but ..

Seriously ? .. a comma makes that sentence read differently ?

I can only see the need for a comma if it was possible to read it as wish-delete, but I figured you'd know you couldn't delete it by wishing ;)
