    Default virtualbox error

    I had installed the VirtualBox through the YaST.When I starthe new virtual machine,it shows that:

    VirtualBox kernel driver not installed. The vboxdrv kernel module was either not loaded or /dev/vboxdrv was not created for some reason. Re-setup the kernel module by executing '/etc/init.d/vboxdrv setup' as root.
    VBox status code: -1908 (VERR_VM_DRIVER_NOT_INSTALLED).


    Result Code:
    0x80004005
    Component:
    Console
    Interface:
    IConsole {1dea5c4b-0753-4193-b909-22330f64ec45}

    What happens?Thans

    Default Re: virtualbox error

    The vboxdrv module isnt loaded and You haven't added the current user to vboxusers group. For this, first open the terminal, switch to root by typing
    Code:
    su root
    Next type
    Code:
    /etc/init.d/vboxdrv setup
    (or copy paste) into the terminal

    then,
    Goto YaST -> Security & Users -> User And Group management. From here, select your user, click on Edit, Goto Detail, and ensure that vboxusers under additional group is checked.

    Logout and login.

    That won't work too well if he (as he stated) installed the crippled SUSE
    version which has that function ripped out (but not the error message
    referring to that command modified accordingly).

    @tallguy: Try loading the vboxdrv module that came with the SUSE version
    by entering the command

    sudo /etc/init.d/vboxdrv start

    It will ask you for the root password. If, after entering that correctly,
    it says "No suitable module for running kernel found" run an online update
    and try again. Hopefully the online update will update your kernel and/or
    VirtualBox package to match each other. If the error persists, get rid of
    the SUSE version and install the original Sun version of VirtualBox
    instead, which will allow you to recompile the module for the kernel you
    are using.
