    Angry Virtual Box

    Hello all i installed the virtual box 2.0.4 and when i run virtual machine a error shows saying that

    Failed to open a session for the virtual machine b0x
    Virtual machine 'b0x' has terminated unexpectedly during startup.
    Result Code: 
    NS_ERROR_FAILURE (0x80004005)
    IMachine {1e509de4-d96c-4f44-8b94-860194f710ac}
    The VirtualBox Linux kernel driver (vboxdrv) is either not loaded or there is a permission problem with /dev/vboxdrv. Re-setup the kernel module by executing
    '/etc/init.d/vboxdrv setup'
    as root. Users of Ubuntu or Fedora should install the DKMS package at first. This package keeps track of Linux kernel changes and recompiles the vboxdrv kernel module if necessary
    i tried to execute the /etc/init.d/vboxdrv setup but it failed no kernal found
    knowing that i have the back|track 4 R1 with latest kernal there some thing that i missed or any thing would fix it >

    Well the error message tells you exactly what to do, and I have seen this problem many times, and a few times I have forgotten what appears to be the same thing you have forgotten to do.
    Users of Ubuntu or Fedora should install the DKMS package at first.
    Follow the above quote and then run the /etc/init.d/vboxdrv setup and it should work just fine. If it does not after doing this then post back all error messages you got.
    To be successful here you should read all of the following.
    If you are new to Back|Track
    Back|Track Wiki
    Failure to do so will probably get your threads deleted or worse.

    Sounds like your kernel source is missing/not appropriately linked. Read the following.

    Capitalisation is important. It's the difference between "Helping your brother Jack off a horse" and "Helping your brother jack off a horse".

    The Forum Rules, Forum FAQ and the BackTrack Wiki... learn them, love them, live them.
