Failed.

This is why there's always room on my hardware for Windows.

Rather than installing VMware and let me go on my merry way, Linux wants me to know about headers.

It's expected with the limited ram of model b and also the processor is not optimized for parallel computing.

sudo apt-get install virtualbox

This failed? How badly have you fucked up your system?

Seems I didn't update my /etc/apt/sources.list.

Meanwhile in terminal
Code:
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install linux-headers-`uname -r`

That was annoying........

Offtopic: I hate "sudo" and all that drama about not using root, on desktops. Linux brought down to Vista level

I take it you dislike typing sudo while not in root/safety off mode?  Huh

Yes. I dislike to type sudo, I dislike to have the fucking root password prompt thrown at me when I need to do something worthwhile, I hate that programs show prompts whining about how insecure it is to run under root, I hate people bitching that it's bad practice to run as root when I didn't ask for fucking advice.

My machines always run at super-user privileges with auto-login, no UAC, no prompt garbage. If a distro/OS doesn't allow it, I ditch the distro.
