Virtualbox, The popular tool that allows us to install (virtually) multiple operating systems, updates to version 4.1.6. Also this update, as the previous one, is a minor release that goes only to solve some bugs and issues using the software without introducing any special news. A full changelog you can find it in the bug fixati this page. Now let's see how it is possible install Virtualbox 4.1.6 on Ubuntu ,Choosing between two possible modes of installation: PPA or manual download.
Installing via Packages
All you have to do is choose from the list below and install it with your package a double click:
- Ubuntu 11.10 (“Oneiric Ocelot”) i386 | AMD64
- Ubuntu 11.04 (“Natty Narwhal”) i386 | AMD64

If you want to have VirtualBox up to date the latest versions, being notified directly by the transmission of updates, then you can rely on PPA repository created by little.
echo "deb http://download.virtualbox.org/virtualbox/debian $(lsb_release -sc) contrib" | sudo tee -a /etc/apt/sources.list
wget -q http://download.virtualbox.org/virtualbox/debian/oracle_vbox.asc -O- | sudo apt-key add -
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install virtualbox-4.1
My advice is to install the package on the extensions that you can download VirtualBox this page and once started go on VirtualBox File -> Settings and in the Extensions tab, click the button to add an extension (the first blue diamond) and select the extension you just downloaded
