    Configuration error in Virtualbox 5.0. Installed but unable to start virtual machine

    Hi, I need virtualbox for a course I'm taking so tried to install it yesterday on 64bit Kali Sana with the rolling release repo's. (For the record it's on a thinkpad with an i7 processor and integrated video card)
    I installed vb from the terminal (after getting linux headers) using wget and dpkg. While it did install I got the following errors:

    dpkg -i virtualbox-5.0_5.0.20-106931~Debian~wheezy_amd64.deb
    Selecting previously unselected package virtualbox-5.0.
    (Reading database ... 381785 files and directories currently installed.)
    Preparing to unpack virtualbox-5.0_5.0.20-106931~Debian~wheezy_amd64.deb ...

    dpkg: dependency problems prevent configuration of virtualbox-5.0:

      Package libpng12-0:amd64 is not installed.
     virtualbox-5.0 depends on libvpx1 (>= 1.0.0); however:
      Package libvpx1:amd64 is not installed.

    You might want to run 'apt-get -f install' to correct these:
    The following packages have unmet dependencies:
     virtualbox-5.0 : Depends: libpng12-0 (>= 1.2.13-4) but it is not installable
                      Depends: libvpx1 (>= 1.0.0) but it is not installable
                      Recommends: libsdl-ttf2.0-0 but it is not going to be installed
                      Recommends: dkms but it is not going to be installed
                      Recommends: linux-headers but it is not installable
     virtualbox-dkms : Depends: dkms (>= but it is not going to be installed
                       Recommends: virtualbox (>= 5.0.20-dfsg-1)
    E: Unmet dependencies. Try 'apt-get -f install' with no packages (or specify a solution).
    I would really appreciate any help with this, I don't want to swap OS's just because I can't get vb up and running.
    Should I try to add the retired Kali repo's as well?
