I followed this wiki: https://wiki.sabayon.org/index.php?titl ... Virtualbox in order to install VirtualBox, but when I reach the step where I have to do "# modprobe vboxdrv" in terminal, I receive this message: "modprobe: ERROR: could not insert 'vboxdrv': Exec format error". How can I fix this? Thks in advance. I am running Sabayon 14.01, 64-bits.

The solution was easier than I'd have thought. I complete upgraded Sabayon, via Rigo Application Browser. After that, I did not have any trouble with these commands:
# modprobe vboxdrv
# modprobe vboxnetadp
# modprobe vboxnetflt
and could successfuly install VBox.
So, to summarize, before following sabayon's wiki on VirtualBox setup, do upgrade. At least it worked for me.
