VirtualBox on Silverblue?

Hi, I’m thiking about switching to Silverblue, with the immutable filesystem is it possible to install VirtualBox? I saw from another thread about Silverblue 29 that this was not possible. Thanks.

Hi @socrates,

You may want to check out this previous discussion about Virtual Box. Otherwise, if you’re still have issues and want to run VMs I would recommend installing the Flatpak of GNOME Boxes.

Yes, you can use Virtualbox in Silverblue, see the DorianDotSlash review on youtube:
I like Virt-manager more, I use it:,

Thanks, doing the overlay worked.

Thanks, VirtualBox is a development dependency unfortunately so Gnome Boxes is a no go but thanks for the suggestion!
