VirtualBox Open Source Edition (OSE)

For a detailed explanation about the differences between VirtualBox and VirtualBox OSE, please take a look at the Editions page. The VirtualBox OSE sources are available free of charge under the terms and conditions of the GNU General Public License, Version 2. By downloading from the below links, you agree to these terms and conditions.

This is a snapshot of the OSE sources at the time of the stable 2.0.0 release.

This is the current development code, which is not necessarily stable.

  • Checking out from our Subversion server.
    svn co vbox
    This is the current development code, which is not necessarily stable.

After getting the sources in one of the ways listed above, you should have a look at the build instructions.

Please note that the Open Source Edition does not include an installer or setup utilities, as it is mainly aimed at developers and Linux distributors. We do request that anyone intending to redistribute the Open Source Edition  contact us first. Please also take a look at our licensing FAQ, in particular regarding the use of the name VirtualBox.
