Full Description

Docker image Ubuntu with VirtualBox

A Docker image of Ubuntu with VirtualBox. It's built on top of the Docker
image ubuntu:15.10. It has also Vagrant.


  • Ubuntu: 15.10
  • VirtualBox: 5.0
  • Vagrant: 1.8.1

Host Requirement

Your host should have VirtualBox kernel modules installed and loaded. Of course,
it should also support virtualization. The version of the kernel modules should
be the same than the ones installed into the guest.

echo "deb $(lsb_release -cs) contrib" >> /etc/apt/sources.list.d/virtualbox.list
wget -q -O- | apt-key add -
aptitude update; aptitude install virtualbox-5.0


You can mount a specific host dir host_data_dir to the docker container /data dir. This directory will store the Vagrant boxes and VirtualBox Virtual Machines.

$ docker build -t enx/ubuntu-vbox .
$ docker run --device=/dev/vboxdrv --volume=/host_data_dir:/data enx/ubuntu-vbox
