hi Alex, <br><br>I am happy to meet with you tomorrow, but I will need you to drive me from my office to the school. <br><br>Also, Tom did make an excellent point in that if Virtualbox is available through Ubuntu's package manager, you almost *always* want to add new software to your box through your native package manager, because it will handle all of the dependencies and it will configure everything properly for your system.
<br><br>You can call me tomorrow after 10 pm at 415-351-1300. If I don't hear from you, I will assume that you installed VirtualBox with your native package manager as Tom suggested.<br><br>You might still enjoy seeing the school, though. It is really kind of inspirational.
