If I do apt-cache search virtualbox|grep -v tran|grep -v aptosid |grep virtualbox I get
      Code:
virtualbox - x86 virtualization solution - base binaries
virtualbox-dbg - x86 virtualization solution - debugging symbols
virtualbox-dkms - x86 virtualization solution - kernel module sources for dkms
virtualbox-fuse - x86 virtualization solution - virtual filesystem
virtualbox-guest-dkms - x86 virtualization solution - guest addition module source for dkms
virtualbox-guest-source - x86 virtualization solution - guest addition module source
virtualbox-guest-utils - x86 virtualization solution - non-X11 guest utilities
virtualbox-guest-x11 - x86 virtualization solution - X11 guest utilities
virtualbox-qt - x86 virtualization solution - Qt based user interface
virtualbox-source - x86 virtualization solution - kernel module source
virtualbox-guest-additions-iso - guest additions iso image for VirtualBox


what are virtualbox-fuse, virtualbox-guest-utils, virtualbox-guest-x11 ? Are they different than virtualbox-guest-source, or is virtualbox-guest-source the combination of those 3?

For each package you can check apt-cache show, and read descriptions.
