• Virtualbox error

    I’m trying to run Whonix on Virtualbox, but when I hit start it displays this message:

    linux kernel driver (vboxdrv) is either not loaded or there is a permission problem with /dev/vboxdrv. Please reinstall the kernel module by executing /sbin/vboconfi as root. where suplibOsInit what: 3. VERR_VM_DRIVER_NOT_INSTALLED (-1908) - The support driver is not installed. On linux, open returned ENOENT.

    What does that mean?

    I tried running vboconfi but it says there’s no such command.

    How did you install VirtualBox on your host? Did you take it from AUR or from the virtualbox web site?

  • if you followed @joekamprad link and still get errors one of these commands may help:

    sudo modprobe vboxdrv
    /usr/bin/VBoxClient-all &
  • @lordbongo

    lsmod | grep vboxdrv

    may also provide some useful information.
