• Install virtualbox in antergos


    hi. I need help to install virtualbox in antergos.
    I have the default kernel linux 3.15 with headers installed
    I installed the virtualbox package along with virtualbox-guest-dkms virtualbox-guest -modules and virtualbox-host-dkms virtualbox-host modules
    I enabled the dkms service : ok
    at reboot it didn’t created any module so I did sudo dkms autoinstall
    at reboot still no virtualbox module

    there are two options:

    • am I missing something with current kernel?
    • It would be easier to install the linux-lts but when I install it and reboot I get a kernel panic
      please help…

  • Hmm…did you add the modules in /etc/modules-load.d?

    Create a file: /etc/modules-load.d/vbox.conf:

    vboxdrv  
    vboxnetadp  
    vboxnetflt  
    vboxpci
    

    Save it and reboot. Let me know if that solves it for you

    Best Regards,
    Dustin

  • I was able to install linux-lts and I added vboxdrv to modules-load.d. now it works
