    And I just typed the three lines commands one by one, then the Virtualbox worked.

    The commands are:

    sudo aptitude update
    sudo aptitude install dkms
    sudo /etc/init.d/vboxdrv setup



    Try it!
    Good luck!

    This worked for me Thanks!!

    any ideas?
    Try tabbing out the vboxdrv portion of 'sudo /etc/init.d/vboxdrv' and see if it has been moved... I say this because I found that I had a file called '/etc/init.d/vboxdrv.dpkg-bak'. I executed
    Code:
    laptop:~$ sudo cp /etc/init.d/vboxdrv.dpkg-bak /etc/init.d/vboxdrv
    laptop:~$ sudo /etc/init.d/vboxdrv setup
     * Stopping VirtualBox kernel module                                             *  done.
     * Removing old VirtualBox netadp kernel module                                  *  done.
     * Removing old VirtualBox netflt kernel module                                  *  done.
     * Removing old VirtualBox kernel module                                         *  done.
     * Recompiling VirtualBox kernel module                                          *  done.
     * Starting VirtualBox kernel module                                             *  done.
    I seem to be good now.
