    Question Virtualbox doesnt start VM, problem with vboxdrv?

    Hi everybody.

    When i try to start a XP Vm, virtual box shows two dialogs, the first:

    Code:
    Cdigo Resultado: 
    NS_ERROR_FAILURE (0x80004005)
    Componente: 
    Machine
    Interface: 
    IMachine {540dcfda-3df2-49c6-88fa-033a28c2ff85}
    The second dialog is:

    Code:
    Kernel driver not installed (rc=-1908)
    
    The VirtualBox Linux kernel driver (vboxdrv) is either not loaded or there is a permission problem with /dev/vboxdrv. Re-setup the kernel module by executing
    
    '/etc/init.d/vboxdrv setup'
    
    as root. Users of Ubuntu, Fedora or Mandriva should install the DKMS package first. This package keeps track of Linux kernel changes and recompiles the vboxdrv kernel module if necessary.
    So, it doesnt start. I execute that command and shows:

    Code:
    alex@altair:~> sudo /etc/init.d/vboxdrv setup
    Stopping VirtualBox kernel module                                                                                                 done
    Recompiling VirtualBox kernel module, NOT. It has been packaged.Recompiling VirtualBox netflt kernel module, NOT. It has been packdone.
    Starting VirtualBox kernel module                                                                                                 failed
      (modprobe vboxdrv failed. Please use 'dmesg' to find out why)
    If i check the dmesg, it doesnt show any error message :S ...

    The installation was with: sudo zypper in virtualbox

    And, this are the packages that are already installed:

    Code:
    alex@altair:~> sudo zypper se virtualbox

    Don't know I installed the generic Vbox from Sun have no problems. Note it requires Kernel-source and gcc compiler installed.

    Do you have anything special installed maybe a other then default kernel. What repositories are you drawing from?

    I don't know what 1 and 13 are the rest look ok. What kernel?

    I still suggest you get the generic package from Sun it will compile to any kernel.

    Kernel:

    Code:
    alex@altair:~> uname -a
    Linux altair 2.6.31.12-0.1-desktop #1 SMP PREEMPT 2010-01-27 08:20:11 +0100 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux
    1 are Games, and 13 are Font Smooting from opensuse-community.org xD

    Well, i will download the package from sun, but why this doesnt work?

    New to suse and vbox but i had the same problem.
    Just restart your new kernel after vbox installed.
    Then edit your user account settings to allow access to vboxdrv in Yast under user managment.


    ANd logout and back in.

    According to your second and third snippets... the reboot and adding yourself to the vbox group should have worked. have you tried to start virtualbox by using the virtualbox ose gui? If you're using kde, then it should show up in the menu search for virtualbox ose.

    Add the VirtualBox repo: zypper ar

    then zypper in VirtualBox-3.1

    You also need the gcc, kernel-desktop-devel, kernel-source and
    linux-kernel-headers packages installed

    I dun think so... If he installed it via yast=>software management all the required packages would have been installed automatically by default. Although, deleting and reinstalling the packages via yast might help.
