You don't say which kernel, but I had vbox 5.2 working fine with 4.13 kernel. It ran a virtual machine created with earlier versions.
Edit: Extra repo for 5.2:
Code: Select all
deb http://download.virtualbox.org/virtualbox/debian xenial contrib
- Which kernel?
- Which version of v-box?
Try re-installing virtualbox w/synaptic and watch the messages.
I would do an entire wipe and update of the system (it's old) but I need to keep VB data intact and I don't even know where it is. The icon for the app disappeared with the above command.
Well heck, since wine 3.0 can run the (one main) program I needed virtualbox for, I removed it and all its local files - yesterday.
This should "find" them -
(IIRC, some of the names have capital letters).
I gather you're trying to find the saved "virtual machine" (the OS and its programs and files)?
One of the .xml files under $HOME will point to where it is, or you can look for a BIG file (mine was about 10G for win7). I had mine set up so the v-machine was on a different partition, but I think by default it should be under your $HOME.
