    Remove the deb-src line from /etc/apt/sources.list

    I was able to get it installed, but it crashes my system when I try to run the program. :-/

    1) Goto "System->Administration->Synaptic Package Manager" then open "Settings->Repositories". Switch to the "Other Software" tab.

    2) You shall see two entries containing the word "http://download.virtualbox.org/*". Remove the second line.

    3) Hit reload and enjoy, :)

    I take no credit for the solution.

      A little correction…

      "Remove the second line" intended to mean "Remove the second entry". Cheers!

    If you want to buy a house, you would have to receive the loans. Moreover, my father all the time takes a financial loan, which is the most rapid.
