    Moved to Virtualization.

    Have you tried doing what the error message is specifically telling you to do?

    Re: VirtualBox

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install virtualbox-ose-modules-`uname -r`
    You will also need to add your main user to the appropriate group, if you haven't already:
    [code]sudo adduser `whoami` vboxusers/code]
