Thread: Virtualbox Sources.list - which Debian Dist do I use?

    Virtualbox Sources.list - which Debian Dist do I use?

    Hello,
    I am installing VirtualBox on Kali.

    VirtualBox instructs:
    Debian-based Linux distributions
    Add the following line to your /etc/apt/sources.list. According to your distribution, replace '<mydist>' with 'artful', 'zesty', 'yakkety', 'xenial', 'vivid', 'utopic', 'trusty', 'raring', 'quantal', 'precise', 'stretch', 'lucid', 'jessie', 'wheezy', or 'squeeze':

    deb http://download.virtualbox.org/virtualbox/debian <mydist> contrib
    (

    Which Debian dist do I choose since Kali is rolling?

    Uname-r: 4.14.0-kali3-amd64

    Cat /proc/version: linux ver 4.14.0-kali3-amd64 gcc ver 7.2 Debian 7.2.0-18 SMP Debian 4.14.12-2kali1 (2018-01-08)

    My guess is jessie', 'wheezy', or 'squeeze' and leaning towards wheezy.

    Wheezy is the correct.
