I tried to run the program in the first pic but that doesn't seem to be installed.

What could have caused this and where should I start to fix this?

Hallo Robert.
You are using Sabayon distro? Because the pics you've added, I can't match to Sabayon. However, if you run Sabayon, then try this, pls. Open a console and get root. Then do the following:

Code: Select all

equo i virtualbox.bin
equo i virtualbox-modules#$(uname -r)
Of course, you need to reload the (new) installed vbox-modules.
you can do this without reboot by executing (as root):

Code: Select all

modprobe vboxdrv vboxnetflt vboxnetadp
Then you can execute VirtualBox. (I've checked here by myself after installing Kernel 3.19.1).

Thank you for the fast reply.

Yes, this is a Sabayon distro running KDE. Pics are captured using Ksnapshot.

Once I get home I'll try your suggestions and post back.

Thank you once again.

When you did your config update, you probably overwrote some configs.
