Upgrading from 1.5.51 to 1.6 op OpenSolaris

Reported by: Mark_E Owned by:

Host type: Solaris


I had a working version of 1.5.51 on OpenSolaris build 86 and installed 1.6. At first I had an error telling me that there was an old version of a driver installed, so I removed the new package and the old INNOvBox package. The re-installed - no apparent errors. Attempting to start a machine now gives me an error. "VirtualBox kernel driver not installed. VBox status code: -1908 (VERR_VM_DRIVER_NOT_INSTALLED).

Result Code: 0x80004005 Component: Console Interface: IConsole {d5a1cbda-f5d7-4824-9afe-d640c94c7dcf}"

Thanks for your help
