View Full Version : VirtualBox installation

21st November 2007, 10:33 PM
I installed VirtualBox and then I ran it in Terminal (cd /usr/bin ./VirtualBox)
I created a new virtual machine and when I tried to run it, it told me to re-setup VirtualBox Kernel Driver. I executed the command it told me to type in terminal but it fails to install (the command is /etc/init.d/vboxdrv setup). Now what should I do? How can I get it working?
I'm using Fedora 8 and the latest Kernel and updates.

Assuming you are on the current kernel otherwise download the rpm and use rpm -ivh kernel-devl .a.b.c.f8 kernel-headers.a.b.c.f8 that ar the same as your kernel.

yum install gcc kernel-devl kernel-headers

You may need a couple of more packages as referred to in the install instructions on


then run /etc/init.d/vboxdrv setup
