We already have several positive reports that the Fedora7 package installs fine. Where do you have this package from?

I downloaded the RPM from the VirtualBox website:

 http://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/Downloads

I downloaded the RPM several times, and have also used a direct connection in the firefox browser. md5sum VirtualBox-1.5.2_25433_fedora7-1.i586.rpm 0074e298e78634986ba6b7df964a4073 VirtualBox-1.5.2_25433_fedora7-1.i586.rpm

I have installed previous RPMs without problem. Great software BTW!

Steve.

Hmm, your package seems to be invalid:

$ md5um VirtualBox-1.5.2_25433_fedora7-1.i586.rpm

steveG, do you still experience the md5sum mismatch problem when you download VirtualBox-1.5.2_25433_fedora7-1.i586.rpm? If so, what causes the package you downloaded to have the wrong md5sum? Is there a bug in your web browser? (Try downloading with a few different web browsers.) Are you behind some weird proxy that changes the contents of files you download? (Try downloading at your local library.) Does your computer have a virus? (Try a few different computers.) Or is the problem something else? I am curious to find out.
