    weird error in virtualbox when starting FreeBSD

    i get error:

    p, li { white-space: pre-wrap; } Virtual machine 'FreeBSD' has terminated unexpectedly during startup.

    Result Code:
    NS_ERROR_FAILURE (0x80004005)
    IMachine {1e509de4-d96c-4f44-8b94-860194f710ac}


    p, li { white-space: pre-wrap; } VERR_VM_DRIVER_NOT_INSTALLED (rc=-1908)

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

    '/etc/init.d/vboxdrv setup'

    as root. Users of Ubuntu or Fedora should install the DKMS package at first. This package keeps track of Linux kernel changes and recompiles the vboxdrv kernel module if necessary

    but i DO have DKMS whats up?

    First things first. Best to download a preconfigured image of freebsd for virtualbox.
    Second thing. Use qemu for freebsd virtualization or xen.

    Do as it said. Build and load the driver.
