How to install .box extension Virtual Machine

| By Webner

To install and use .box extension machine we have to follow these steps:

1.  Installing Virtualbox:

$ sudo  apt-get install virtualbox
$ sudo apt-get install virtualbox-dkms

2.   Installing vagrant:

Please don’t install the repository version, because this is very old and the commands don’t work.

Download the latest package through this:

$ wget
$ dpkg -i vagrant_1.8.1_x86_64.deb

3. Go to the location where the box is located, in my case location is in Download folder:

root@nitin.pant:Download#  vagrant init ubuntu/trusty64
root@nitin.pant:Download#  vagrant up
Bringing machine 'default' up with 'virtualbox' provider...
