View Full Version : [ubuntu] Virtual Box installation

September 20th, 2008, 10:15 PM
I installed virtualbox-ose just for the heck of seeing what it was...

I got the following message in the teminal..
* Starting VirtualBox host networking... [ OK ]
* Starting VirtualBox kernel module vboxdrv
* No suitable module for running kernel found.

But still the Virtual-Box somewhat seemed to work...
But after creating a 5GB virtual drive for Windows XP, when I started off to install it..I got the error message that the kernel module is not available and I can't go further with the installation...

Now it seems that the 5GB virtual drive I created was not deleted even after I deleted it in the options and removed VirtualBox...
coz some 5 GB of free space fails to show up on my comp..

How can I regain my missing 5 GB..??

go to Applications > Accessories > Terminal and type

sudo rm ~/Virtualbox/name of vdi

where name of vdi file is the name of your Virtualbox XP file.
