Could you attach the configuration of this linux kernel?

comment:2 by anonymous, 14 years ago

Sorry can't do, changed the kernel since. If it's of any help I can tell I was using the basic kernel coming with lmde and had virtualbox 3.2 installed beforehands.

I fixed my situation using svmi script to reinstall virtualbox. I'm not sure but I suspect a conflict with some leftover files from virtualbox 3.2.
