CentOS6 in VirtualBox Quick notes

From a default install of CentOS 6 in VirtualBox there is a few things I need to remember to do every time (as root under /tmp):

  1. rpm –import http://apt.sw.be/RPM-GPG-KEY.dag.txt
  2. wget http://packages.sw.be/rpmforge-release/rpmforge-release-0.5.2-2.el6.rf.i686.rpm
  3. rpm -K rpmforge-release-0.5.2-2.el6.rf.*.rpm
  4. rpm -i rpmforge-release-0.5.2-2.el6.rf.*.rpm
  5. yum install dkms
  6. /etc/init.d/vboxxadd setup
