Default Virtual box - 10-25-2009, 10:58 PM

having a problem installing virtual box 3.0 on my dell mini running ubuntu 8.04 displaying an error message. Saying something about installing linux headers so i went to package manager and there so many i don't know which ones to install. Is there anybody that can tell me which linux headers to install, even from the command line if possible.

I'm presuming that you are using the normal Dell Ubuntu 8.04, but correct me if I am wrong.

The Dell Ubuntu install is actually broken from a software-install point of view. It refuses to install some programs for what appears to be no reason. The only thing I could recommend would be upgrading to a newer version of Ubuntu, like Jaunty (9.04) or the final release of Karmic (9.10) that comes out in two days.
