    Question VirtualBox Modules didn't install

    Hi All.

    When I want to install virtualbox ; kernel modules (For example : vboxdrv) didn't install.

    then I reboot and restart virtualbox ; but it doesn't work correctly.
    (I install it from *.run file or *.deb file)

    Please Help Me!

    Is there any particular reason why you are not installing from the official package repositories? Even if you don't want to use the version that comes with Ubuntu, Oracle is providing a ppa, which might be easier to use than compiling manually:

    https://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/Linux_Downloads

    Anyways, if you still want to manually compile, provide the error message that you get.

    Run this:

    Code:
    sudo /etc/init.d/vboxdrv setup
