Keep in mind, that there are two different versions of VirtualBox.
There is the open source edition, that is provided by many
distributions, using a package manager, and there is a proprietary
version, which you have to download from
As far as I know, the only difference is related to usb support,
which is much better in the proprietary version.
This is one of the few packages where I recommend using the third
party version, rather then the version provided by the distribution
you choose to use.
