Hello - I am using Fedora 11 and VirtualBox 3.0.8_OSE r53138. I had Windows XP and two LINUX Distro's working ok. Then with no reason the other day when I tried to start XP it crashed with the following:

Failed to open a session for the virtual machine XP. Virtual machine XP has terminated unexpectedly during setup. Details: Result Code: NS_ERROR_FAILURE (0x80004005) Component: Machine Interface: IMachine {540dcfda-3df2-49c6-88fa-033a28c2ff85}


Kernel driver not installed (rc=-1908)

The VirtualBox Linux kernel driver (vboxdrv) is probably not loaded.

If you installed or VirtualBox OSE package recently you need to restart the computer for the driver to load.

Alternatively, you may attempt to load the driver by issuing the following command with system administrator (root) privileges:


I am unsure how to execute the /etc/sysconfig/modules/VirtualBox-OSE.modules I have run /etc/init.d/vboxdrv setup but it make no difference. I have included a loge file of the error.

This bug report seems to be related to specific Fedora 11 package of VirtualBox OSE so please open a bug report against Fedora not here. Thank you!
