Virtual Box Kenel driver not installed on PE 1.1? [Solved]

Post by PAdu92 » Sat Jan 05, 2008 19:41

Hi guys, on my sabayon PE 1.1 with the stock kernel, when I run a virtualbox I get:

VirtualBox kernel driver not installed. The vboxdrv kernel module was either not loaded or /dev/vboxdrv was not created for some reason. Re-setup the kernel module by executing '/etc/init.d/vboxdrv setup' as root.
VBox status code: -1908 (VERR_VM_DRIVER_NOT_INSTALLED).


Code de résultat:
0x80004005
Composant:
Console
Interface:
IConsole {1dea5c4b-0753-4193-b909-22330f64ec45}


of course I tried /etc/init.d/vboxdrv setup
but it can't find it

Thanks, I found it.
For others the solution is "modprobe vboxdrv"

edit: I think, this should be loaded by default since virtualbox is installed by default?
