« on: November 15, 2012, 11:33:27 am »

i have vector 32 and 64 installed.  32 vector i easily installed virtual boxby downloading and then running it inthe terminal. but in 64vector, it said in the terminal that i had to install the build and header files for the current kernel3.2.22 for virtual box 4.2.4. i do not know how to go about doing this. any help is appreciated.  i want to compare the functionality of vector32  vs. vector64 inregards the performance of virtual box, as i constantly load new distros via virtual box-there are so many!

Code:
installpkg http://vectorlinux.osuosl.org/VL64-7.0/kernels/3.2.22-1vl70/kernel-src-3.2.22-x86_64-1vl70.txz
then run the .run file again.
