    Errors after installing Virtualbox 6.0

    I am new here, so if I am not in the correct forum area please let me know. Anyways, I recently installed Fedora 29 workstation on 3 computers (2 desktops and one laptop) to which I have installed Virtualbox successfully on two. The two that Virtualbox installed on did so without issue. I simply downloaded Virtualbox and installed through the Software Center install button and Virtualbox popped right up.

    My third computer however is non-compliant. I tried to install through download/Software Center install and it throws up no errors, but when I click the icon to open it I get nothing. So I attempted following install guides/instructions from both if-not-true-then-false and nixcraft websites. The installation went fine, but I was greeted with the following errors when attempting to launch Virtualbox from the Terminal.
    Code:
    Qt WARNING: QXcbConnection: XCB error: 3 (BadWindow), sequence: 419, resource id: 25165828, major code: 2 (ChangeWindowAttributes), minor code: 0
    Qt WARNING: QXcbConnection: XCB error: 3 (BadWindow), sequence: 420, resource id: 25165828, major code: 18 (ChangeProperty), minor code: 0  ... continued for like 3 pages
    So I was hoping someone could assist me with getting this figured out as this is my main computer. Hardware specs EVGA H370 itx mobo, i5-8500, 8gb GSkill Aegis Ram 2400mhz, and GTX 760. FYI secure boot is disabled, but am running Fedora in EFI.

    Re: Errors after installing Virtualbox 6.0

    So apparently even though I thought Virtualbox installed correctly on my other computers I was mistaken. I tried to create a Virtual Machine on them, but it wanted me to install some other things so that it could write to the kernel or something. I did attempt to install the dependencies, but it still didn't work. I have spent too much time trying to get this working, so I have decided to just use the built-in "Boxes" for my Virtual Machines. I think the problems lie with the Virtualbox installer and need to be addressed on their end.
    So, since I am new here do I need to put "Unsolved / Gave Up" or something at the title of the thread, so others know this thread didn't go anywhere? Someone please let me know and I will oblige. Thanks.

    Re: Errors after installing Virtualbox 6.0

    Well, in my case, since I am using the rpmfusion NVIDIA driver, I always have dkms installed. Since I am a programmer, I also have gcc installed.
    I make sure my BIOS has Virtualization turned on (SVM in the case of Asus/Ryzen).

    And installing virtualbox is a jiffy, dnf install .... and that's it. I've never had any issues.
    It does compile its own kernel module (vboxsrv), which is probably what is missing on your end.
