Ticket #7536 (reopened defect)
kernel driver not installed
|Reported by:||matteosistisette||Owned by:|
|Version:||VirtualBox 3.2.8||Keywords:||vboxdrv, kernel module, recompile|
Every once in a while (I suppose every time the kernel gets updated thruough ubuntu's automatic update manager), after I reboot my ubuntu host and try to open Virtual Box and start one of my virtual machines, I get the following error:
""" The VirtualBox Linux kernel driver (vboxdrv) is either not loaded or there is a permission problem with /dev/vboxdrv. Please reinstall the kernel module by executing
as root. Users of Ubuntu, Fedora or Mandriva should install the DKMS package first. This package keeps track of Linux kernel changes and recompiles the vboxdrv kernel module if necessary. """
Then I run the abovementioned command and everything gets fixed, but it is ridiculous that I have to do so every time. Would you imagine if EVERY application I use required the same??
Needless to say, I HAVE dkms installed but this happens allthesame.
