kevina047's picture

when I do this to add the virtualbox to my linux box

wget -q http://download.virtualbox.org/virtualbox/debian/sun_vbox.asc -O- | apt-key add -

warning apt-key requires gnupg for most operations

then I do the following to ad it: 

apt-get install gnupg

warning gnupg is not available but is referred to by another pkg.  However the following pkgs replace it: gpgv

please advise.  

 

TKL-CORE 2009-02.iso

Subject says it all really. That's what I'd do and see if it works then.

I receive #gpgv is already the newest version. My question is how to I install virtualbox (to run headless VBoxes) on TKL-CORE ?

You should be able to install gnupg even though gpgv is installed as it provides gnupg, and does not conflict with it.
Just don't forget to update the package index:
apt-get update
apt-get install gnupg
