Since some time I can’t use Virtualbox anymore. I created several guest machines but they all at a given moment freeze.
I have used Virtualbox on this hardware before and it worked well, the version I have now doesn’t. Sometimes I manage to install the guest OS but it freezes later, now I working with Manjaro KDE and it won’t even let me start the installation process.
I use Tumbleweed and it is fully updated. I somehow get a feeling I either miss a piece of software, or I have something installed too much. When I look in Yast software management I see I have installed 4 packages:
Is this correct? Can somebody confirm this, or do I need less or more packages?
Do I maybe need a package which does not carry Virtualbox in its name?
Some hardware info:

I read that when I want to use virtualization I should tell that to the BIOS/UEFI, but in there I can’t find anything at all regarding virtualization. Does that mean it is switched on already?
Who can help me with this issue? I would like to have it running again so I can see what other distro’s are doing without disturbing/erasing Tumbleweed.
