    Virtualbox Extension Pack

    I reinstalled my entire system to Ubuntu 16.04 LTS and I installed Virtualbox with
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install virtualbox
    I downloaded the extension pack for 5.0 since I couldn't install the latest versions extension pack. When I tried to install it, it told me I had 5.1.22.
    Code:
    Failed to install the Extension Pack /home/richard/Downloads/Oracle_VM_VirtualBox_Extension_Pack-5.1.22-115126 (1).vbox-extpack.VBoxExtPackRegister returned VERR_VERSION_MISMATCH, pReg=0000000000000000 ErrInfo='VirtualBox version mismatch - expected 5.1 got 5.0'.
    
    Result Code: NS_ERROR_FAILURE (0x80004005)
    Component: ExtPackManagerWrap
    Interface: IExtPackManager {edba9d10-45d8-b440-1712-46ac0c9bc4c5}
    How can I fix this? I really need to get items for my Windows 10 on Virtualbox. Please help.

    Re: Virtualbox Extension Pack

    The extension pack is for use with the version of VirtualBox you get from the website, not the one in the Ubuntu repos.

    Are you installing it from that repos listed here? https://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/Linux_Downloads

    Re: Virtualbox Extension Pack

    I sure did install it from Ubuntu Software Center. I guess I should install it from here? https://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/Downloads

    That's actually the same .deb I installed from the Ubuntu Software Center. Where do I get the one you speak of?

    Re: Virtualbox Extension Pack

    Going here http://download.virtualbox.org/virtualbox/ and clicking on the matching virtualbox version that you have installed should give you the relevant extension pack.

    Exactly which version of Virtualbox have you installed, is it 5.0.18 ?

    Code:
    vboxmanage --version

    Re: Virtualbox Extension Pack

    Hmm, I must of purged it. So I tried to install the package from the link you provided and this is what happens.

    I finally got Virtualbox 5.1.225 to partially install. The reason I say partially is because the install bar has been stuck right before almost complete for about an hour. I tried to go ahead and fire it up and here are the errors I get including screen shots of me firing it up as root and the error I got. Please help again!

    Re: Virtualbox Extension Pack

    See if this helps:
    Code:
    sudo rcvboxdrv setup
    I think DKMS may be a miss here...anyway let us know if this works.

    Re: Virtualbox Extension Pack

    I would file a bug>> or check to see if there is one already filed. Here: https://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/Bugtracker
    In the meantime I'll see if I can recreate your problem.
    I'll be back in any case.
