VirtualBox 5.1.12 for Linux ¶ Note: The package architecture has to match the Linux kernel architecture, that is, if you are running a 64-bit kernel, install the appropriate AMD64 package (it does not matter if you have an Intel or an AMD CPU). 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. The VirtualBox base package binaries are released under the terms of the GPL version 2. Please choose the appropriate package for your Linux distribution: You might want to compare the SHA256 checksum or the MD5 checksum to verify the integrity of downloaded packages. 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). yum install VirtualBox-5.1 to the latest maintenance release of VirtualBox 5.0.x.

To put it simply, a file system is how a hard drive is able to store, access, and manage files.
