[SOLVED] Virtualbox error

Post by Psychodad » Fri Nov 10, 2017 2:39 pm

Hi,
I've tried to install virtualbox, but i always get the same error message when i start virtualbox.
I've googled my problem, but none of the how to's seem to fix the error message.
This is the message i get: The VirtualBox 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/vboxconfig'
as root.

Does anyone know how to fix this?
Thanks in advance.

Did you did a restart of your machine after installing the program?

there was a change yesterday
that always happens on Arch.
you have to wait typically 2-3 days.
yesterday it was fixed in 1 day

type in terminal

pksyua

and get the updates in
Learn, have fun and enjoy.
But first use the power of the Arch Wiki
use the tutorials on https://www.youtube.com/erikdubois
then use the power of google
then use the power of our moderators.

I noticed the same error.
the solution is reboot after installing virtualbox. reason : the appropriate modules are not loaded yet.

Psychodad in the thirth post i ask you if you did a reboot of your system and you answered: "Yes, i restarted my system. I can't find a solution anywhere." to it??
Three posts later you say:"Thanks, that solved it.", was it not fixed after the first reboot?
