OpenSUSE :: Virtualbox Can't Start - Vboxdrv Not Loaded

Mar 24, 2010

Recently I had updated the kernel but afterwards I can't run virtualbox because the kernel modules aren't loaded.

Virtual box: 3.1.4 r57640 OpenSuse110-x86_64 Open Suse 11.0 running kernel-default-

When I try to start vboxdrv manually I can find the message: kernel: warning: `VirtualBox' uses deprecated v2 capabilities in a way that may be insecure.

After I installed the older kernel-default- version I can start virtualbox.

But, much to my suprise, I also get this message with this kernel level. But still, the kerneldrivers are loaded and I can run virtualbox.

OpenSUSE :: Virtualbox: Vboxdrv Doesn't Load On .3 (raw_notifier_chain_register)

Sep 22, 2010

I have problems to get Virtualbox 3.2.8 under openSuse 11.3 (, x86-64) running. I tried both the VirtualBox-3.2-3.2.8_64453_openSUSE113-1.x86_64 package from Virtualbox and self-compiled drivers as well as the newest RPM packages from openSuse(backports). I mostly get the following error during the vboxdrv load:

[ 269.095562] vboxdrv: Trying to deactivate the NMI watchdog permanently...
[ 269.095562] vboxdrv: Successfully done.
[ 269.095562] vboxdrv: Found 6 processor cores.


However I already tried different combinations of previous kernels and virtualbox versions and the error persists. This is somewhat strange. Sometimes I was able to get proper drivers when reinstalling the whole stuff under failsafe mode a couple of times. But still not cleary reproducable.

Sep 9, 2010

I installed VirtualBox-OSE and VirtualBox-Kernel from the Slackbuilds at I start VirtualBox I get the following message on the CLI: Code: WARNING: The vboxdrv kernel module is not loaded.Either there is no module available for the current kernel ( or it failed to load.Please recompile the kernel module and install it by sudo /etc/init.d/vboxdrv setup.You will not be able to start VMs until this problem is fixed.I gave /etc/rc.d/rc.vboxdrv executable permissions, and then ran.The only issue is, I have to do this each time that I reboot, should I add 'modprobe vboxdrv' to one of the startup scripts or is something else wrong?

OpenSUSE :: VirtualBox Keeps Failing Even Though Ran "/init.d/vboxdrv Setup"?

Sep 4, 2010

I keep getting the error below even though I:

1. Added myself to vboxusers
2. Installed dkms
3. Ran the "sudo /etc/init.d/vboxdrv setup" command.

When I run "/etc/init.d/vboxdrv setup" it gives me the error: modprobe vboxdrv failed. use 'dmesg' to find out why

The VirtualBox Linux kernel driver (vboxdrv) is either not loaded or there is a permission problem with /dev/vboxdrv. Please reinstall the kernel module by executing '/etc/init.d/vboxdrv setup'

as root. Users of Ubuntu, Fedora or Mandriva should install the DKMS package first. This package keeps track of Linux kernel changes and recompiles the vboxdrv kernel module if necessary. One other thing, I looked in the file system and there is no "/dev/vboxdrv". Is this correct?

Slackware :: Can't Start 13.37 On VirtualBox 4.0.6

May 7, 2011

Actually, Slack64 runs just fine under VirtualBox on my old HP under WinXP, But the installer for Slack86 won't boot under VirtualBox on my Toshiba Netbook under Win7 starter. I tried updating the 13.1 install I have on there, but I get the same kernel panic when I try to reboot that. It always bails just as it is switching over to the new kernel. The dump fills my screen so I can't see the actual error. How can I capture that initial startup log? Slack86 runs just fine on my old Compac Armada 1700 (266PII 92M/12G), but that's a very different environment.

Software :: VirtualBox : Start And Shutdown Guests VMs On Startup?

Jun 21, 2010

I'm preparing a vitualization server (host) with VirtualBox. This machine, running Debian, is intended to run in HeadLess mode, without GUI.
I've got some guests VMs running. But I was wondering about the best way to start this guests VMs on startup and shut them down kindly when host is shutdwon.

Virtual Machines run under non-root user. I was thinking about making a script in /etc/init.d/ in order to start certain VMs and to stop every VM running when system is halted. Is this really the simplest and most secure approach?
Actually I couldn't find very much on this subject in user manual or googlin' around.

I do need KInternet to connect. Although if in the KInternet preferences I selected that KInternet should load automaticly at startup/boot, this just this doesn't happen. A workaround is possible, by placing an alias of KInternet on the desktop and clicking on that one after startup. However, couldn't I get it to load automaticly like it worked under 11.1 / KDE 3.5 ?

OpenSUSE Hardware :: PS Webcam Mic Not Being Loaded After Reboot

Jul 5, 2010

I'm using opensuse 11.2 with a 64bit configuration (KDE 4.3.5). I have a playstation eye webcam that work's perfectly (just plug & play) but i have an annoying problem. The microphone of the webcam is not being loaded after every reboot but, after the os has booted, plug-off and then plug-in again, makes it work normally. I've googled and I have found some solutions, telling that it should be a modules problem not being loaded in the right sequence, or during shutting down or when switching on. The fact is that i couldn't apply that solutions cause they were for different systems.

Trying to run windows only apps. I installed Wine first from software center. Most progs I try to run only give me the 'working' icon for 20 seconds then nothing.

Running Ubuntu maverick. My Cpu is a compaq presario laptop CQ50, dual core intel T3200. Not the best but should at least start the progs yes?

Can't really troubleshoot as I have no feedback at all.
