Thread: VirtualBox problem

    Default VirtualBox problem

    When I run the VirtualBox Manager and double click the VMs, it returns 2 messages:



    PHP Code:
    /usr/share/virtualbox/src/vboxhost/build_in_tmpline 62makecommand not found
    /usr/share/virtualbox/src/vboxhost/build_in_tmpline 62makecommand not found

    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. Please reinstall the kernel module by executing

    '/etc/init.d/vboxdrv setup'

    as root. If it is available in your distribution, you should install the DKMS package first. This package keeps track of Linux kernel changes and recompiles the vboxdrv kernel module if necessary

    How to fix this to run?

    So did you run this?

    Code:
    su -
    /etc/init.d/vboxdrv setup

    Install "make" (this has already been suggested)!

    Or use the virtualbox RPMs included in openSUSE instead. (you don't have to compile the kernel module there)

    I too get the same error: /usr/share/virtualbox/src/vboxhost/build_in_tmp: line 62: make: command not found

    How to use the virtualbox RPMs included in openSUSE? I have no idea about that since i am very new to openSUSE.

    i need a step by step directive to achieve this... kindly help..

    Thankyou.

    And another time:
    You have to install "make".
    That's even stated in the part you quote.

    How to use the virtualbox RPMs included in openSUSE? I have no idea about that since i am very new to openSUSE.
    Install them and then just run VirtualBox from the start menu.

    Open YaST->Software Management, type "virtualbox" into the search field, and install the package "virtualbox-qt" (yes, even on GNOME. There is vboxgtk as well, but that doesn't really work with current versions and seems dead upstream) which should automatically install every thing else automatically.
    Or run this in gnome-terminal:
    Code:
    sudo zypper in virtualbox-qt
    You should then find "Oracle VirtualBox" in GNOME's application menu, or run it with:
    Code:
    VirtualBox
    One other thing: to be able to run it as user, you have to add your user to the group "vboxusers".
    You can do so either in YaST->Security and Users->User and Group Management, or via:
    Code:
    sudo usermod -a -G vboxusers $USER
    Better reboot afterwards, as the kernel modules have to be loaded.
