You guys are right.
I did have the Oracle repo loaded for a short stint, I removed it shortly afterwards.
In the meantime it installed their version of vbox, alongside other packages.
This simplifies things, at least now I know that there are no conflicts in repo.
I already removed that version of vbox.
Did apt-get update and apt-get dist-upgrade and everything OK.
This evening I will post what is left installed, gotta go now.
Please help me finish cleanup of this system and install vbox the right way.
Thanks for all the help.

Hi,
you don't need any of the -guest packages unless you are in a virtual machine, so you can do:
      Code:
apt-get purge virtualbox-dbg virtualbox-guest-dkms virtualbox-guest-source virtualbox-guest-utils virtualbox-guest-x11

-ose- are just transitional packages.

You don't need dbg either. But if you want to debug virtualbox leave it installed.
Be sure to purge Oracle's virtualbox, not only remove and also dkms. I had some issues with not doing it Sad
      Code:
apt-get purge virtualbox-4.1 dkms

then follow hubi's advice to install Debian's virtualbox. It's just a few replies earlier. You don't need to run service vboxdrv setup anymore.

After these operations only thing left, according to Synaptic, is:
virtualbox-ose-source
virtualbox-source
Not sure how to purge remnants of Oracle version, as it is now gone.
I used Synaptic to completely remove it.
I know it is not the ideal way that you recommend, but I am not used to aptosid yet, been using it for less than a week only.
So, how continue cleanup?
I would like to purge virtualbox-ose-source too, I think that there is no need to purge virtualbox-source as it is the same, but no problem doing that too, since I will start from scratch with the dfsg version.
How verify that Oracle version has been indeed purged?
Thanks.

I wouldn't mention Synaptic in this forum Very Happy I strongly recommend you using apt-get and apt-cache as they are our tools of choice. There are reasons for it.
You'll get used to them quickly. There's really nothing to it. I was a GUI guy too Very Happy

There might be a way to purge packages in Synaptic but I'm not familiar with it.
Run the command I suggested as root in terminal:
      Code:
apt-get purge virtualbox-4.1 dkms

If you really purged it in Synaptic it will tell you that there is nothing to do. Otherwise it will purge them.
There is no need to remove virtualbox-ose-source as its only role is to install virtualbox-source. It's a dummy package. There's nothing in it.

Don't continue until you run the command above. I personally had some troubles with only removing Oracle's virtualbox.

@ pumrel,
OK, I will write Syn@ptik from now on, Smile.
There is nothing weird about marking a package for removal OR complete removal, which I did, those are context menu options.
I already ran apt-get purge virtualbox-4.1 dkms from init 3, so I guess there is nothing more to do and I am good to go ahead with the install.
I am trying to get used to aptosid tools, love the distro, give me some time.
Will let you know later how the install went, gotta go now.

Success!
Everything installed without a glitch.
Launched virtualbox from Utilities menu, very fast.
Will now install the extpack from Oracle, for guest usb support, as slam suggested.
If there is any trouble, or anything worth commenting about that, will post here.
Thanks for all the help.

Only thing worth noting so far is that boot sequence takes much longer because of dmakms preparing virtualbox-source for the present kernel (latest).
Is this normal?

There's a new thread on this in this forum awaiting reply Sad

It's a bug in dmakms. dmakms is using a wrong dpkg-query for testing the module-status.

Ok then, so why it is recommended over dkms?

EDIT: Ok, I can see now there's a patch Smile
