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

Have you tried installing gpgv?

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

yes, tried that

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 ...

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
