I just can't install.

Problem: "conflicting requests - nothing provides needed by VirtualBox-5.2-5.2.20_125813_fedora26-1.x86_64".

Any idea?

VirtualBox-5.2.18-1.fc29 from rpmfusion-free works find, but it that is not good enough you have to talk to Oracle.

From today you can get VirtualBox-5.2.20-1.fc29 from rpmfusion-free.

I'm running Fedora 29 LXDE. Experiencing the same issue. This morning I installed compat-libvpx4-1.6.1-1.fc28.x86_64.rpm from koji.

This worked for me and I am now able to use the Oracle version of VirtualBox, VirtualBox-5.2-5.2.20_125813_fedora26-1.x86_64.rpm
