    I think it is the headers that you need to install to match your installed kernel.

    Install them then run the command in the error.

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

    Re: Virtual box

    How did you install virtualbox? Did you download the deb file from https://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/Linux_Downloads or follow instructions farther down the page for "Debian-based Linux distributions"?

    I did the latter (adding the repository and using sudo apt-get), and the only thing I had to do after installing it was add myself to the vboxusers group (although, I am running 64-bit 12.04). I also added the "Extension Pack" from https://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/Downloads

    VboxGuestAdditions.iso ends up in /usr/share/virtualbox which you can mount on the virtual CD of a guest operating system. Although, in certain Linux distributions you might need to uninstall their older default guest additions before installing this matching version.
    i5 650 3.2 GHz, 8 GB, nvidia GTX 550 Ti 32" 1080p | i7-4700, 8 GB, Intel HD 4600/nvidia GTX 765M 15.6" 1080p | etc.
