VirtualBox won't start
 
Greetings;

I just installed VBox 2.0.6 from their web site and it won't
start.


I did remove all VBox 1.6.6 things with Synaptic first and
then used dpkg -i to install the .deb file from the VBox site.


When I try to run VirtualBox I get

VirtualBox: supR3HardenedMainGetTrustedMain:
dlopen("/usr/lib/virtualbox/VirtualBox.so",) failed:
/usr/lib/libfontconfig.so.1: undefined symbol:
FT_Select_Size

Any ideas on how to fix this?

Many TIA!
Dennis

Install 2.0.6 from Debian experimental.


OK, Thanks for that tip!

I did that. Now I get a message

Could not find VirtualBox installation.
Please reinstall.

Now what is wrong now, I wonder??

TIA again,
Dennis

Just asking the obvious....Did you remove all traces of the old install before
doing the new install?
