    1. Success!! Virtualbox on Fedora 33! Thank you so much!

      I guess when Oracle officially releases the F33 rpm, I just need to do a usual yum update? Thank you!

      • Excellent!

        You will need also repo file and then normal dnf/yum update should do the trick when next version is available. Check step 2.2., but you can’t install it yet, because Fedora 33 repo doesn’t exists.

    2. Thanks a lot! I depend on VirtualBox on a daily basis for work, and after upgrading to F33 I could not run it anymore until an official package was released. Your tips just provided me the workaround I needed =)

    5. Hoi,
      on your current guide you mention to install the package VirtualBox-6.1 and not VirtualBox.

      Could you please explain where the difference is and why you are using VirtualBox-6.1 instead of VirtualBox?

      When I would install with:
      “dnf install VirtualBox” it would install in addition “VirtualBox-kmodsrc”, “VirtualBox-server” and “akmod-VirtualBox”. These packages are not listed in your guide, do I not need them?

      Kind regards :)

      Sorry if that message comes twice, after first pressing “Post Comment” came a 504 gateway timeout…

      • Hello Woraz,

        VirtualBox-6.1 is from Oracle’s own repo and VirtualBox from RPMFusion repo. Both should work, but as you might guess, Oracle’s own repo is always updated earlier, when they release new version.

    7. followed procedure on fedora 33. upon launching virtualbox and attempting to add an iso only 32-bit versions were listed within virtualbox as possible guest systems

      • Hello ahd,

        Please check your BIOS/UEFI that you have all virtualization settings enabled.

        • For Intel x64: VT-x (Intel Virtualization Technology) and VT-d are both enabled
        • For AMD x64: AMD SVM (Secure Virtual Machine) is enabled

    9. This works, thanks!

      It did *not* work for me on a Fedora 33 host logged into Gnome on Wayland, but it *does* work if I log into Gnome on XOrg.

      The guest in both cases was current (Nov ’20) Manjaro.

      • Hello Jim,

        What you get if you start VirtualBox from command line (on Wayland)? And any error on dmesg?

    10. Thanks for the tutorial, I have successfully installed virtualbox on fedora 33, and it seems that the enhancements are not working!

    11. After installing on Fedora 33 you have to create signing keys and then sign the kernel modules :
      openssl req -new -x509 -newkey rsa:2048 -keyout MOK.priv -outform DER -out MOK.der -nodes -days 36500 -subj “/CN=VBOX/”
      sudo /usr/src/kernels/`uname -r`/scripts/sign-file sha256 ./MOK.priv ./MOK.der $(modinfo -n vboxdrv)
      sudo /usr/src/kernels/`uname -r`/scripts/sign-file sha256 ./MOK.priv ./MOK.der $(modinfo -n vboxnetadp)
      sudo /usr/src/kernels/`uname -r`/scripts/sign-file sha256 ./MOK.priv ./MOK.der $(modinfo -n vboxnetflt)

      • Hello Ghostdog,

        You have to sign your modules, only if you have secure boot enabled on BIOS/UEFI.

        With secure boot enabled you have to sign all your kernel modules, not only VirtualBox modules.

        What is Secure boot?
        Secure boot is a setup using UEFI firmware to check cryptographic signatures on the boot-loader and associated OS kernel to ensure they have not been tampered with or bypassed in the boot process. Secure boot activates a lock-down mode in the Linux kernel which disables various features kernel functionality:

        Loading kernel modules that are not signed by a trusted key.
        Using kexec to load an unsigned kernel image.
        Hibernation and resume from hibernation.
        User-space access to physical memory and I/O ports.
        Module parameters that allow setting memory and I/O port addresses.
        Writing to MSRs through /dev/cpu/*/msr.
        Use of custom ACPI methods and tables.

        You will miss also many Linux kernel features, if you have secure boot enabled.

    12. Afetr dnf install ~/rpmbuild/RPMS/x86_64/VirtualBox-6.1-6.1.16_140961_fedora33-1.x86_64.rpm
      I get an error saying package not signed. Error: GPG check failed….

      • Hello David,

        Maybe this come from VirtualBox repo, try:

        dnf --nogpgcheck install ~/rpmbuild/RPMS/x86_64/VirtualBox-6.1-6.1.16_140961_fedora33-1.x86_64.rpm

        Or disable VirtualBox repo.

    15. This guide worked like a charm. Thank you very much. I have installed virtual box. I have not yet created or imported any VMs though, but it looks promising.
