VBox daemon won't start

Reported by: laidlaws Owned by:

Version: VirtualBox 4.0.6 Keywords: daeemon won't start
Cc: Guest type: Windows

I can set up a virtual machine entry, but when it comes time to start it, the daemon won't start.

Command /etc/init.d/virtualbox start returns [FAILED]

From dmesg:

VirtualBox[4836]: segfault at 128 ip b528a695 sp bffedbf0 error 4 in[b51d9000+125000]

Now resolved. This one just "went away."

After a complete reinstall I had a DKMS issue affecting all apps using DKMS. When installing, I did not first remove /var/lib/dkms directory. I removed and re-installed the DKMS modules. Since then I have had a kernel upgrade, and the fresh DKMS modules are working normally. That is a separate bug-that-was-not-a-bug, but I am adding it here in case the info helps anybody.
