Virtual Box installation error message on Linux

I have been having issues with Virtual Box on my Linux Suse 11.0 Kernel 2.6.25.

I was not able to install it on this platform for a few days , but with a little troubleshooting on my own I was able to install it successfully.

But now I am not able to run as the user that I am logged in as.

I try to log in as the root user and then tried to run, but it comes up with an error telling that I am not the root user.

I have full rights but not sure why it keeps coming back with this error message.

Effective UID in not root (euid=514 egid=20 uid=514 gid=20) (rc=10) Please try reinstalling VirtualBox.

 Hi RonaldWilson,
 
This is really an annoying problem. I have given a solution on the below that would be helpful for you.
  • You have to start the guest Operating System of Linux in Virtual Box.
  • Go to the Virtual Box menu and click install Guest Additions in the guest operating system.
  • Then you have to open Terminal windows in your guest operating system.
  • Then you need to enter sudo apt-get install dkms
  • Then You need  to Enter :cd/cdrom
  • Then enter the word: sudo sh./VBoxLinuxAdditions-x86.run
  • When it will finish then you need to close terminal Windows and restart your pc.
Hopefully it will resolve your issue.
