Oracle Releases VirtualBox 6.1.38 Stable Version: Preliminary Support for Linux 6.0
The VirtualBox 6.1.38 stable release introduces support for the Linux 5.18 and Linux 5.19 kernels, initial support for the upcoming Red Hat Enterprise Linux 9.1 system, initial support for Python 3.10, and optimized support for the Linux kernel using the Clang compiler.
The biggest improvement in the VirtualBox 6.1.38 stable release is the introduction of preliminary support for the Linux 6.0 kernel, which means users can virtualize GNU/Linux distributions with Linux Kernel 6.0. After the official release of Linux Kernel 6.0 this fall, users can install VirtualBox on Linux 6.0-driven distributions.
VirtualBox 6.1.36 provides initial support for Red Hat’s upcoming RHEL 9.1 system, while VirtualBox 6.1.38 brings additional fixes to the kernel used in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 9.1. Also for Linux systems, the new VirtualBox release updates the Linux Host and Guest Additions installer to improve the mechanism for checking for the presence of a systemd init system in the distribution.
