VirtualBox on Nemesis

Post#1 by gezer33 » 13 Apr 2016, 08:45

I downloaded Virtualbox run file and install on Nemesis 3.5 lxde version.
But not able to run virtual machines.
I am getting this error on a window.

kernel driver not installed (rc=-1908)

it says execute '/sbin/rcvboxdrv setup'

but it doesn't help. I tried on nemesis 3.3. I also tried older version of Virtualbox but same result.
Please help.

Hello gezer33,

I am moving your post to the nemesis section.

Porteus nemesis edition development is on the hold for now. The vbox options was buggy, and is not a priority. Nemesis development might not be resumed.

A porteus version with as basis slackware current will be presented in the next few days or weeks.

Meanwhile, have a look at nekos arch linux version of porteus. See aporteus:
