    Virtualbox web service won't start. 12.04 Headless ubuntu server

    It's been 2 days since I can't solve my problem.

    I had a working copy of VirtualBox but something went wrong so I decided to start fresh.
    Does this remove all the configuration as well?
    Code:
    sudo apt-get purge virtualbox-\*
    And this is how I get new version of virtualbox
    Code:
    sudo echo "deb http://download.virtualbox.org/virtualbox/debian $(lsb_release -sc) contrib" | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/virtualbox.list
    sudo wget -q http://download.virtualbox.org/virtu...racle_vbox.asc -O- | sudo apt-key add -
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install virtualbox-4.2
    wget http://download.virtualbox.org/virtu...6.vbox-extpack
    sudo VBoxManage extpack install *.vbox-extpack
    And now the log that follows. I am really not sure what's wrong.
