Facing a problem with your openSUSE installation or configuration? Search into openSUSE Forum
Too many times during the past i faced problems with a distro installation or a specified configuration….i searched into the forums but not always i solved the problem…
Well, now i know why i use openSUSE Linux and why i am a member of Ambassadors! Yes i know!
Any problem i face (like today) i find useful instructions in the openSUSE Forum. So i faced the same problem with the virtualbox but…now the solution is available. First of all let me introduce you to the problem :
VirtualBox keeps failing even though ran “/etc/init.d/vboxdrv setup”!!
I keep getting the error below even though I:
1. Added myself to vboxusers
2. Installed dkms
3. Ran the “sudo /etc/init.d/vboxdrv setup” command.
SOS!! What can i do now?
Here is the solution to the problem above:
Step 1 :
Install the kernel sources and headers :
Step 2 :
Install the gcc compiler so as to compile the module!
Step 3 :
Install the appropiate service:
And that’s it!
VERY HAPPY but Why?
My first post in openSUSE Forum. I hope that users who may face the same problem will be able to solve it!
