    virtualbox

    hi!
    im looking for solution for this:

    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.

    problem, like 5 hours already and cant find any.

    i know this question was ask many times but i realy could not find solution for me.

    Re: realy need help with virtualbox problem

    I had the same issue today after updating my ubuntu. What I did to fix it was read the error and do what it said:

    execute '/etc/init.d/vboxdrv setup'

    Have you done this:

    sudo /etc/init.d/vboxdrv setup

    That fixed the error when we see that.

    lisa@lisa-Inspiron-1545:~$ sudo /etc/init.d/vboxdrv setup
    [sudo] password for lisa:
    * Stopping VirtualBox kernel modules [ OK ]
    * Uninstalling old VirtualBox DKMS kernel modules [ OK ]
    * Trying to register the VirtualBox kernel modules using DKMS [ OK ]
    * Starting VirtualBox kernel modules [ OK ]
    lisa@lisa-Inspiron-1545:~$


    That should fix the issue, if not, re-install virtualbox.

    OK, so you installed the version from the Ubuntu repos.

    Uninstall it and try installing the version found here:
