    Try doing this:

    Open up a shell and navigate to /home/user/.VirtualBox .

    Type "ls" to list all files.

    If you see a VirtualBox file, but no VirtualBox.xml file, try renaming VirtualBox to VirtualBox.xml .

    I hope this works.

    You could try installing Sun's non-open source version of Virtualbox.

    Use the VirtualBox RPM download from Sun. The openSUSE version has been
    crippled by removing the ability to recompile the kernel modules, which
    may be what is biting you because SLED probably has a slightly different
    kernel version than openSUSE. Only downside is you need kernel-sources
    installed in order to recompile the modules.
