Virtualbox: vboxservice.service error

I'm having this issue with vbox:

status vboxservice.service
● vboxservice.service - VirtualBox guest services
Loaded: loaded (/usr/lib/systemd/system/vboxservice.service; enabled; vendor
Active: inactive (dead)
Condition: start condition failed at Sun 2017-05-14 23:39:47 CDT; 2min 17s ago
├─ ConditionVirtualization=|kvm was not met
└─ ConditionVirtualization=|oracle was not met


The closest I read was this:

https://bugs.archlinux.org/task/45738

Any thoughts?

Re: Virtualbox: vboxservice.service error

thoughts without knowing any further details than provided above, a recent systemd update after reading the arch thread.

however, please elaborate further:
-fedora and kernel version
-dkms installed or not
-virtualbox version
-has it ever worked or is this a new install failing to run

I run VirtualBox 5.1.22 as host with CentOS 7.3 at present so can't say the same has happened to me yet so I don't really know the real solution. Check for the same issue with systemd at https://bugzilla.redhat.com

If no answers are forthcoming here and you can't find the issue on bugzilla, file it as a new bug and provide them with the same information, referencing the arch thread as well.

Re: Virtualbox: vboxservice.service error

Ok, I just installed dkms, and it still won't run.

Linux DDesktop 4.10.14-200.fc25.x86_64 #1 SMP Wed May 3 22:52:30 UTC 2017 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux


VirtualBox-5.1-5.1.22_115126_fedora25-1.x86_64


Recent install of f25.

Re: Virtualbox: vboxservice.service error

dkms won't make it run on it's own just by installing it. dkms is not a requirement of virtualbox but helps add virtualbox required modules to newer kernels as and when you update the system

Re: Virtualbox: vboxservice.service error

Ok, so if I systemctl enable dkms, should I be able to start virtualboxservice.service in the future?

Re: Virtualbox: vboxservice.service error

no, it's still a systemd issue by the looks of it. the only reason I mentioned dkms is so that as and when fedora update kernels, your virtualbox drivers get installed to the newer kernel as well.

this is the guide I followed to set my virtualbox up. while the version number has changed, the same method works

Re: Virtualbox: vboxservice.service error

Have a look at my VirtualBox install script. It works extremely well. Maybe you can get a pointer or two from the code.

Well, VB is working for me, it's just that one service that is throwing an error.
