Thread: Guest failed in VB

  1. #1

    Default Guest failed in VB

    New to SUSE and virtual-box install went well, bu on the guest I received this error and unsure exactly what I must do

    The vb kernel driver (vboxdrv) is either not loaded or there is a permission problem. with /dev/vbox/drv

    Please reinstall the kernel by executing /etc/init.vboxdrv setup
    Then something about DKMS package fir
    st

    Please advise as to steps and thanks

    Default AW: Guest failed in VB

    You should never receive that message on the guest. It is an error message on the host which usually comes up if the kernel has changed.
    Can you post a screenshot so that we see the exact message?

    You can also directly try
    Code:
    su -
    /etc/init.d/vboxdrv setup
    but that will only succeed if you have all dependencies for it installed.

    I feel like an idiot. Have no clue how to get the image from shotwell to post.
    I am use to seeing an attachment link and browse. I see nothing
    Sorry
