Virtualbox 6.1 on Beowulf x64 beta

This works the same way as the official Virtualbox instructions for Debian, but hopefully it may help some Devuan users who aren't sure:
* Intel/AMD 64-bit architecture
* Current Virtualbox 6.1

Manual download and installation as root (requires manual updating with "wget" and "dpkg -i"):

apt-get install -y gcc make perl
wget -q -O- | sudo apt-key add -
wget -q -O- | sudo apt-key add -
# Check to see if there's a newer version
dpkg -i virtualbox-6.1_6.1.6-137129~Debian~buster_amd64.deb
apt-get --fix-broken install

Installation via apt-get (easier to keep up to date):

sudo su -c 'wget -q -O- | apt-key add -'
echo "deb [arch=amd64] buster contrib" | sudo tee -a /etc/apt/sources.list
sudo apt-get update
# Check for latest version or use: apt-cache search virtualbox
sudo apt-get install -y virtualbox-6.1
