Hi,

The “virtualbox-dkms” software is installed before now. “Sudo modprobe vboxdrv” explained that vboxdrv software is not installed in the machine. I installed the package again. On the other hand it gives similar error. After that I uninstalled and installed virtualbox again by the side of all helpful packages.

However it gives a similar error till now. Will somebody assist me with explained procedure to get on working?

 

Kernel driver not installed (rca-1908)

Please install the Virtualbox-dkms package and execute ‘modprobe vboxdrv’ as root.

Hi there Ingridgonzalou,
 
This happens sometimes after updating the Linux OS and the solution is really quick and simple.
 
Try running the following commands, one by one:
 
sudo aptitude update
sudo aptitude install dkms
sudo /etc/init.d/vboxdrv setup
 
Those commands should go through the setup and update and repair all the missing, corrupted or outdated files so everything should be working again.
