Hi Allexa,

This could be that you have a problem with your installer. I suggest to run a Repair disk permissions using Disk utility before installing Virtualbox. If this doesn't work, try to use for the DVD of your fedora installer instead to see if that will work better. You could also try to use the latest version of VirtualBox is still didn't use it to see it will work on your system as it already fixed some bugs from Linux systems. Hope this could help you.

Regards

Mike

Hello there,

First of all check these things:

1. The VirtualBox you installed is the latest one!

2. Did you update your system after installing VirtualBox!

3. Did you update your VirtualBox recently!

If the installed virtualbox is not the latest one than install that. Try updating the fedora. At least try updating the VvirtualBox. If in between this the error is not solved than it is a user account problem, just run these two commands in the terminal. This will work for sure.

chown -R username. Username /home/ username
chown -R username. Username /tmp/. Vbox- username -IPC

Thank you,
