• virtualbox not working on new install


    Hello. I just finished installing Antergos, but can’t figure out why virtualbox isn’t working. This never happened before.
    Host modules and host dkms are installed. But when I try to start it I get this error:
    [[email protected] ~]$ virtualbox
    WARNING: The vboxdrv kernel module is not loaded. Either there is no module
    available for the current kernel (4.4.1-2-ARCH) or it failed to
    load. Please recompile the kernel module and install it by

           sudo /sbin/rcvboxdrv setup
    
         You will not be able to start VMs until this problem is fixed.
    

    VirtualBox: supR3HardenedMainGetTrustedMain: dlopen("/usr/lib/virtualbox/VirtualBox.so",) failed: libQtCore.so.4: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

  • I have got the same problem. Could you try to run the following command:
    $ sudo /sbin/rcvboxdrv setup

    Does work and will load the missing modules. Problem is that it is not a permanent solution. I my case I have to do the same every time after a reboot.

    After writing the above I run Vbox as root in terminal.
    This gave me the error message again. I ran:
    $ sudo rcvboxdrv

    This will compile the missing drivers for your current kernel. Would this solve the error message?
    Not sure if this will be permanent or not. Will have a look at it tomorrow.

    Never to old to learn.

  • Hi,

    Guys, try to install virtualbox-host-dkms to see if it helps.

  • I tried what you guys said but nothing. I’ll try with the lts kernel to see if that make a difference.

  • Hi,
    I know this topic is quite old but i found a solution for the error:

    VirtualBox: supR3HardenedMainGetTrustedMain: dlopen("/usr/lib/virtualbox/VirtualBox.so",) failed: libQtCore.so.4: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
    

    You need to install the Qt4 package from he repo and that will resolve it :)

  • You have to install linux-headers qt4 and the virtualbox dkms package

    After that modprobe vboxdrv and try to launch it again.

    There is a post on the fourms explaining the whole process. And maybe the wiki?

    Cheers! I don't know what I'm talking about!
