    OS - OpenSuse 11.3
    KDE 4.4.4 (Release 3 )
    Virtualbox Version - 3.2.10 .
    I have tried with older version , yet same din't worked even for that.

    I don't know what to do , since when i click on on Oracle VM Virtuabox , it runs in the taskbar but the GUI never returns back and closes itself after few seconds.

    Please suggest. Thanks in advance .

    Provided you reboot the same kernel as the one you just used to compile the module. Sounds silly but ...

    I assume you correctly updated your user's permissions by adding them to group 'vboxusers' (followed by logging out of Linux and logging back in) ?

    You were right . the user was not added to vboxusers . I went to Users and group Management and added the user to the group and Logged out and Logged in again and it worked.

    Thanks you so much.

    Just for the record: it is not necessary - after '/etc/init.d/vboxdrv setup' the VB-module is ready to use.
