VirtualBox install on Fedora 20 64bit

Since I always forget the details, here is how to install VirtualBox on Fedora 64bit

  • Download and install VirtualBox
  • Install the following required packages for /etc/init.d/vboxdrv to setup correctly
    • yum install kernel-headers kernel-devel dkms
  • Next run the /etc/init.d/vboxdrv setup
  • You should see the following output

/etc/init.d/vboxdrv setup
Stopping VirtualBox kernel modules [ OK ]
Uninstalling old VirtualBox DKMS kernel modules [ OK ]
Trying to register the VirtualBox kernel modules using DKMS[ OK ]
Starting VirtualBox kernel modules [ OK ]

 

start Virtualbox

Citrix Receiver install on OEL / Redhat 6.3

Download and install Citrix Reciver client

Install complained about alsa-lib sounds drivers. Apparently it needs 32bit alsa-lib so:

yum install alsa-lib.i686

Install complained about libcrypto so had to install the 32bit openssl

yum install openssl.i686

Modify the /opt/Citrix/ICAClient/util/integrate.sh script to include the correct Firefox config executable.

After modifying integrate.sh you need to run it.

./integrate.sh

Next depending on your Company’s certificates, you may need to download the root certs from the cert provider.

http://www.geotrust.com/resources/root-certificates/index.html

Right click on “Geotrust Global CA” and save to your desktop as a .crt file
http://www.geotrust.com/resources/root_certificates/certificates/GeoTrust_Global_CA.pem

Right click on “Equifax Secure eBusiness CA-1” and save to your desktop as a .crt file
http://www.geotrust.com/resources/root_certificates/certificates/Equifax_Secure_eBusiness_CA-1.pem

Close Firefox and copy the two crt files into your Citrix cacerts directory.

cp ~/*.crt /opt/Citrix/ICAClient/keystore/cacerts

Restart Firefox and you should be good to go!

#######UPDATE##########

This also fixes the SSL issues. You do not need to download any Certs.

ln -s /etc/ssl/certs/* /opt/Citrix/ICAClient/keystore/cacerts/

CYGWIN install on Windows 8 ssh-host-config as well!

Install cygwin from cygwin.com

Run cygwin shell as “Administrator”

Run “ssh-host-config”
