desktop menu -> system -> Virtualbox builder

this tool will let you create latest Vbox/vbox guest modules. ofc 05-devel.xzm is needed.

I have manual run the VirtualBox-4.2.16-86992-Linux_amd64.run file and build the xzm module.

Reboot my system and activate the virtualbox module. But received this warning:-

Code: Select all

WARNING: The vboxdrv kernel module is not loaded. Either there is no module
         available for the current kernel (3.9.11-porteus) or it failed to
         load. Please recompile the kernel module and install it by

           sudo /etc/init.d/vboxdrv setup

         You will not be able to start VMs until this problem is fixed.

just tried and got working module.
make sure you have 05-devel.xzm activated and internet connection (if not building from a local .run file).
