    Check you have set up correctly
    VirtualBox Installation - openSUSE

    go thru the above step by step

    You didn't say if you were using the repo or the Sun .rpm
    But it doesn't really matter.

    Only if you use the repos you can add the build service VBox
    Leap 15.1_KDE

    More info please. From which repo's you installed it? Are you set vbox modules to start in runlevel editor? When you execute this command:
    Code:
    groups
    is the vboxusers group listed?

    Are you set vbox modules to start in runlevel editor?

    You shouldn't need to follow any tutorials or do anything exotic with your installation of virtualbox, simply follow what virtualbox itself is telling you what to do, it's giving you the answer

    As root run the command it's giving you, /etc/init.d/vboxdrv setup

    After doing that it should work fine, although you may need to logout and back in first

    There can also be an issue if the user isn't in the vboxusers group, but virtualbox will also pop up a message telling you to rectify that if you need to anyway, if it doesn't tell you the user needs to be added to the vboxusers group then you shouldn't need to worry about it

    If something's telling you to do something to fix a problem it's usually a good idea to read what it's telling you to do and ... just do it

    I did, all i got was
    Code:
    Recompiling VirtualBox kernel module                                 failed
      (Look at /var/log/vbox-install.log to find out what went wrong)
    And when i look in that file there's nothing there.

    Hmmm ... bit hard to troubleshoot if the log's empty

    Something just occured to me though, I had a problem with shared folders on a system I did a fresh install of suse and vbox on the other day

    Popped over to vbox's own forum to see what they had to say, apparently there's a number of issues with virtualbox 2.1.0/2.1.1 and they were recommending people get version 2.0.6, which solved my shared folders issue

    Might be worth checking what version you have and getting 2.0.6 if you're using one of the later ones

    If you need to, here's where you can get earlier versions from:

    Index of /virtualbox/


    Also, I've had a couple of problems after installing virtualbox rpms before, but never have when installing from the binary, so the binary's what I always use

    Okay, i got the 2.0.6 version like you suggested, but i can't install it cause I'm asked to install libpython 2.5.so.1.0 first, and i already have libpython, only a different version.

    What do i do? where can i get the 2.5 version?

    Thanks for your help btw
