Mixed installations (e.g. Debian/Lenny ships an AMD64 kernel with 32-bit packages) are not supported. To install VirtualBox anyway you need to setup a 64-bit chroot environment.

Oracle Linux ¶ Users of Oracle Linux 5, 6 and 7 can use the public yum repository and enable the el5_addons (OEL5), the ol6_addons (OL6) or the ol7_addons (OL7).

So how do you access NAS from Linux?
