[文章收集] How to Install, Run and Uninstall VMware Player and VirtualBox on Fedora Linux

Source From Here 
Preface 
VMware Player (download) and VirtualBox are two cool and free full virtualization solutions and both can run on top of a Linux host. In this post, we introduces how to install, run, and uninstall VMware Player and VirtualBox on Fedora Linux

VMware Player 
Install VMware Player 
Download the installation bundle from VMware’s website. For example, the file we download is: VMware-Player-6.0.3-1895310.x86_64.bundle (link

Install needed kernel header and devel packages 
# yum install kernel-headers kernel-devel

Run the bundle file 
# sh VMware-Player-6.0.3-1895310.x86_64.bundle

Then just follow the instruction of the GUI of the VMware installer, and you can finish the installation. 

Run VMware Player 
Just execute 
$ vmplayer

Start a virtual machine just by one command 
$ vmplayer /path/to/virtual/machine/config.vmx

Give the path to the virtual machine configuration file (a .vmx file under the virtual machine’s directory) to vmplayer as its parameter. 

Uninstall VMware Player 
VMware installer provides the method to uninstall VMware products. We can use this tool: 
# vmware-installer --uninstall-product vmware-player

It has a GUI and just follow its instruction to finish the uninstallation. 

VirtualBox 
Install VirtualBox 
We use VirtualBox’s repository for Fedora here. We use VirtualBox-4.1 as the example. Download the repository file. 
# cd /etc/yum.repos.d
# wget http://download.virtualbox.org/virtualbox/rpm/fedora/virtualbox.repo

Install VirtualBox using yum 
# yum install VirtualBox-4.1

Run VirtualBox 
Just execute 
$ virtualbox

Start a virtual machine just by one command 
# VBoxManage startvm name_of_the_virtual_machine

VBoxManager use the virtual machine’s name as its parameter. The name can be found from VirtualBox’s virtual machine list. 

Uninstall VirtualBox 
As installing VirtualBox, we can uninstall (erase) it using yum 
# yum erase VirtualBox-4.1
