Ticket #1285 (closed defect: duplicate)
VirtualBox Kernel Driver not accessible to current user
|Reported by:||jctosu||Owned by:|
When I try to start, or install a virtual machine the machine fails to start giving me an error (screenshots are attached) that says the VirtualBox Kernel Driver is not accessible to the current user. I am running 32-bit Ubuntu Linux 7.10. To get things working I created the following file on how to start and configure the system for VirtualBox:
#starts up virtualbox
#if sudo is not included in the following command the terminal says:
#WARNING: You are not a member of the "vboxusers" group. Please add yourself
#to this group before starting VirtualBox.
#You will not be able to start VMs until this problem is fixed.
#To get USB working: #edit /etc/groups by typing "sudo gedit /etc/groups" into the terminal and #finding the user edit /etc/fstab by typing "sudo gedit /etc/fstab" and add 'none /proc/bus/usb usbfs #devgid=1000,devmode=664 0 0' where #the 1000 is user found in /etc/group of user who is #getting access
