Ticket #11233 (reopened defect)
the vboxdrv service is not started
|Reported by:||stephdl||Owned by:|
I found that the binaries installed virtualbox from oracle repositories causing malfunction on my debian wheezy.
Every time I run virtualbox, the prompt asked them to return this command although the DKMS package is installed
we can see that the service vboxdrv is not started at boot the machine because there is no runlevel assigned to this service.
I have to manually assign it level with the startup command
"update-rc.d vboxdrv defaults"
I can reproduce this bug on two debian wheezy when I want to use the packages virtualbox 4.1 and 4.2
here are the error messages that I get when I want to start virtualbox
Failed to open a session for the virtual machine ...
"The virtual machine '..' has terminated unexpectedly falling on startup with exit code 1."
and also that the
"Kernel driver not installed (rc = -1908)

as root. If it is available in your distribution, you install the DKMS package shoulds first. This package keeps track of Linux kernel and recompiled exchange the vboxdrv kernel module if Necessary. "
