VirtualBox [Solved]

Post#1 by fab1qaz » 28 May 2016, 18:36

I'm on Porteus 3.2rc2 and tried to use VirtualBox but as you can see

Code: Select all

WARNING: The vboxdrv kernel module is not loaded. Either there is no module
         available for the current kernel (4.5.3-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.

I am missing the vboxdrv kernel module. Where do I get that? Thanks in advance Bogomips. ;)

Hi fab1qaz.
Look at these modules 05-devel.xzm and probably crippled_sources.xzm for your arch

Thanks Blaze. What is arch? Do I need all 4 of these modules active?
