Virtualbox (

When I launch virtualbox, this window appears:
Kernel driver not installed (rc=-1908)

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


as root.

where: suplibOsInit what: 3 VERR_VM_DRIVER_NOT_INSTALLED (-1908) - The support driver is not installed. On linux, open returned ENOENT.

have you tried ?

In my experience, virtualbox can be quite the pain to get running on some systems, while on others it’ll run by casually mentioning its name.

YMMV is a very apt description of all things ‘virtual’.

@popeye have you got the kernel headers installed for your VB?

I haven’t host kernel module

It’s ok now; thank you.
