Virtualbox Driver

Post by Kieutrang » Thu Oct 10, 2019 9:58 pm

I am trying to run Virtualbox. It says, It says modprobe vboxdr driver kernel not installed. This happens when I try to run anything on it. I tried the synaptic download manager. Rebooting, you name it. How do I get this driver?

That driver has to be built from source and is in virtualbox-dkms package.

The following packages should be installed from the repos

Code: Select all

[bill@XPS] ~/script $ apt search virtualbox|grep ^i
i   virtualbox                                                                                      - x86 virtualization solution - base binaries                                                               
i   virtualbox-dkms                                                                                 - x86 virtualization solution - kernel module sources for dkms                                              
i   virtualbox-ext-pack                                                                             - extra capabilities for VirtualBox, downloader.

i   virtualbox-qt                                                                                   - x86 virtualization solution - Qt based user interface
