• Kernel and virtualbox

    Hello Linux fans.

    Just started with Antergos this morning and looking good. A few questions however. This is my kernel.

    Linux hparch 4.18.4-arch1-1-ARCH #1 SMP PREEMPT Wed Aug 22 07:33:26 UTC 2018 x86_64 GNU/Linux

    Now is this an LTS? I did ask LTS during install. Second issue is with VirtualBox.

    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.

    Not sure where to go from here. Thanks

  • @opale7000 4.18.4 is the main Kernel, if you choose LTS Kernel on install it should be the default one on boot, but may there is a BUG on the installer at the moment and it is only aviable if you choose it from Advanced options for Antergos on boot menu (select manually)

    On Virtualbox, you need to follow the WIKI to get all working:


  • @joekamprad Thanks for quick response. I will give it a try.

  • you are welcome :)

  • You will be ask for installing the core-packages:
        for linux kernel choose virtualbox-host-modules-arch
        for other kernels choose virtualbox-host-dkms

    I chose linux Kernel. Is this correct?

    sudo systemctl enable vboxservice

    I get

    Failed to enable unit: Unit file vboxservice.service does not exist.

    Not sure what to do?

    I chose for linux kernel. Is this corect?

  • oh yes i remember that this is not aviable anymore… i need to update the wiki…

    modprobe vboxdrv
  • and sudo vboxreload may also

  • @joekamprad OK I will check later. Thanks

  • Go it working following this guide at link text

    followed by

    sudo modprobe vboxdrv
  • @opale7000 said in Kernel and virtualbox:

    sudo modprobe vboxdrv

    yes! must be as root ;)

    I updated the wiki…
