    Exclamation WARINING! Using Virtualbox 4.0 from Oracle can cut down your samba or wifi

    In case one day u can't access samba or got no network, just deinstall your Virtualbix 4.0. and restart computer. See if you can access internet and samba then.
    I didn't copy/paste the samba and system logs, but the error was similar like here:

    # insserv samba
    insserv: FATAL: service syslog is missed in the runlevels 4 to use service
    vboxdrv


    I don't know if it also affects the OpenSource Edition of Virtualbox, but it happened just like that. I had network and samba and suddenly it was broken by some Virtualbox issue. Deinstalling helped. So if you see a similar error when (as root) you do

    tail -f tail -f /var/log/NetworkManager or tail -f /var/log/samba/log.smbd
    , than see if deinstalling Virtualbox helps. It can always be installed back and your virtual machines stay untouched.

    One comment: I did not use the command insserv.

    But I had exactly the same error when doing ifup wlan0.

    Also Networkmanager reported in it's log the same error, showing the vboxdrv... This made me uninstall Virtualbox 4.0 - very strange. But at least I know the guilty one.
