Hey all,

I just installed Ubuntu 12.10 and was trying to install a Windows 8 Virtualbox. I downloaded the 64bit Virtualbox file from virtualbox.org, it then took me to Ubuntu software center where I installed another file virtualbox-4.2.

The program initially wouldn't show up, so I logged out and then it did show up. I clicked to create a new Virtualbox, inserted the Win 8 dvd, and when I clicked start I was greeted with two error boxes:

The VirtualBox Linux kernel driver (vboxdrv) is either not loaded or there is a permission problem with /dev/vboxdrv. Please reinstall the kernel module by executing

'/etc/init.d/vboxdrv setup'

as root. If it is available in your distribution, you should install the DKMS package first. This package keeps track of Linux kernel changes and recompiles the vboxdrv kernel module if necessary.

Failed to open a session for the virtual machine Win 8 RC.
The virtual machine 'Win 8 RC' has terminated unexpectedly during startup with exit code 1.

Result Code:
NS_ERROR_FAILURE (0x80004005)
IMachine {22781af3-1c86-5126-9edf-67a020e0e989}

Im relatively new to Ubuntu, any suggestions of what went wrong?

Thanks for taking your time to read this!
