    Re: VirtualBox error: Kernel driver not installed (rc=-1908)

    hey,

    all of your tips didnt help for me.. the command
    Code:
    /etc/init.d/vboxdrv setup
    works as long as I don't restart my PC.. after the reboot I have to do the same again..

    if I hit
    Code:
    sudo aptitude update
    
    I get
    Code:

    after this I hit
    Code:
    sudo aptitude install dkms
    and I get
    0 updated, 0 added, 0 deleted

    then I hit
    Code:
    sudo /etc/init.d/vboxdrv setup
    and I get
    Code:
    [ ok ] 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:.
    well, as I already said, it works, as long as I don't restart my PC..

    whats wrong? could it be a rights-problem?

    I don't use virtualbox anymore but you could check to see if the kernel modules are actually loaded or not after a reboot.

    What do you get back if you run this after a reboot:

    Code:
    lsmod | grep vbox

    Re: VirtualBox error: Kernel driver not installed (rc=-1908)

    after a reboot there is no output,

    when I execute this command
    Code:
    /etc/init.d/vboxdrv setup
    I get

    Code:
    vboxpci                19096  0 
    vboxnetadp             25443  0 
    vboxnetflt             23608  0 
    vboxdrv               217233  3 vboxnetflt,vboxnetadp,vboxpci
    what can I do?

    OK, it might be a problem with Vbox on Wheezy. I would suggest making a thread on the virtualbox forums and seeing what they say.

    Re: VirtualBox error: Kernel driver not installed (rc=-1908)

    they seem to be on vacation.. no answer after two days..
    I tried to add
    Code:
    @reboot .../vbox.sh
    this on /etc/crontab

    in this vbox.sh script there is only

    Code:
    #!/bin/sh
    #
    /etc/init.d/vboxdrv setup
    but it doesn't work as well.. I still have to execute this vboxdrv setup after every reboot/logon

    solution:
    change line #32 at /etc/init.d/virtualbox (as root)

    Code:
    test -d /usr/share/doc/virtualbox -a -x /usr/bin/VBoxHeadless || exit 0
    to

    Code:
    test -d /usr/share/doc/virtualbox-4.2 -a -x /usr/bin/VBoxHeadless || exit 0

    You'd need to run it in a root crontab and reference it via full path. If that still doesn't work, you could try purging vbox and all the extra junk it pulls in and then reinstalling it to see if that fixes it.

    EDIT: I guess the uninstall script didn't clean up after itself. >.<

    I had the same problem and I tried to reinstall virtualbox, the 'dkms' package, run '/etc/init.d/vboxdrv setup' or add 'vboxdrv' to '/etc/modules' but nothing worked. For me the solution was to install the 'virtualbox-dkms' package by running 'sudo apt-get install virtualbox-dkms'

    You just have to log in as a root and add one line code in a file: /etc/modules

    The line is: vboxdrv

    Then save, reboot and log in a usual. Worked for me.
    That worked for me on Debian Wheezy. Many thanks.
