How to install Virtualbox on Fedora 17 Server

If you are running a Fedora 17 in server mode (without GUI or Desktop environment such as Gnome or KDE), you still can install and run Virtualbox in headless mode. This means, there is no GUI for the Virtualbox as well. In advanced we can install phpvirtualbox that will help us to manage and admnister the Virtualbox via web browser remotely.

This tutorial is going to show you how to install Virtualbox 4.2 on Fedora 17.

A. Create admin user on Fedora

Open Terminal and paste this command to add new admin group and admin user. Do this command as root.

groupadd admin
useradd -d /home/admin -m -g admin -s /bin/bash admin
passwd admin
