VirtualBox 4 is only available on Linux at this time. But installing VirtualBox 4 on Fedora is quite easy. You just follow this simple step and you will have VirtualBox 4 on your Fedora.

If you donโ€™t have VirtualBox repository, add it first. It could be done by creating a file named VirtualBox.repo at /etc/yum.repos.d/ . Fill that file with this :

1 [virtualbox]
2 name=VirtualBox
3 baseurl=http://download.virtualbox.org/virtualbox/rpm/fedora/$releasever/$basearch
4 enabled=1
5 gpgcheck=1
6 gpgkey=http://download.virtualbox.org/virtualbox/debian/oracle_vbox.asc

After done that step, you could install it with yum as root.

1 yum install VirtualBox-4.0 kernel-header

Please be sure you type VirtualBox not virtualbox, because Fedora has open source virtual box version available on Fedora official repository.

Done. Enjoy Fedora. ๐Ÿ™‚
