    Default Virtual Box Non OSE problems

    Hi Everyone,

    I am using openSUSE 11.3. I have installed Virtualbox non OSE and when I run it it looks like it opens, but it doensnt. I made sure I have the kernel source and kernel sym installed.

    Any suggestions?

    Many thanks.

    Hi,

    Here's how you should install it : Virtual Box (Sun Version) Install HowTo

    Your probably missing the compilation part.

    Hi,

    Ive uninstalled Virtual Box. Then I decided that I would install it with Yast, so I added the repo and installed it. It went through 100%. But now when I try to run it it still gives me the bouncing Virtual Box icon and then it dissappears after a few seconds without doing anything. I am part ob the vboxusers group.

    Any suggestions? Perhaps I'm missing something.

    Thanks
