Unable to run Virtualbox on Fedora12 i386

Reported by: Akshay Owned by:
Component: other Version: VirtualBox 3.1.0
Keywords: Cc:
Guest type: other Host type: Linux


Hello Everyone,

I have been trying to install Virtualbox on Fedora since 8 days (till date) asking in the IRC community of vbox as well as Fedora to search a solution to my problem. Some said that my pc (host) had guest additions installed and no one could actually sort out the acually problem.

I keep getting an error which you may look up at

I am putting down some information which might help you understand my error

Fedora :- Fedora 12 i386

Kernel Version :-

VirtualBox Ver :- VirtualBox-3.1-3.1.0_55467_fedora12-1.i686

DKMS Installed Ver :- dkms-

After running /etc/init.d/vboxdrv as root

Error Output : (Cannot create device /dev/vboxdrv with major 10 and minor 57)

dmesg O/P :

And Exact Command Line Procedure I followed while doing this :-

Change History (2)

Do NOT install the guest additions at the host, this is nonsense.

Please could you post the output of /bin/ls -l /dev/vboxdrv after you tried to execute /etc/init.d/vboxdrv setup? Do you have udev installed? I assume yes because this is a standard package and it does not make sense to remove it but I want to be sure.
