Here's what happens when I reinstall Virtualbox and try to run it:
- Code: Select all
root[impatiens]# sh VirtualBox-4.1.18-78361-Linux_amd64.run
Verifying archive integrity... All good.
Uncompressing VirtualBox for Linux installation...........
VirtualBox Version 4.1.18 r78361 (2012-06-20T09:49:33Z) installer
Removing previous installation of VirtualBox 4.1.18 r78361 from /opt/VirtualBox
Installing VirtualBox to /opt/VirtualBox

Building the VirtualBox kernel modules
VirtualBox has been installed successfully.
You will find useful information about using VirtualBox in the user manual
and in the user FAQ
We hope that you enjoy using VirtualBox.
WARNING: The vboxdrv kernel module is not loaded. Either there is no module
available for the current kernel (3.3.6) or it failed to
load. Please recompile the kernel module and install it by
sudo /etc/init.d/vboxdrv setup
You will not be able to start VMs until this problem is fixed.
/usr/bin/virtualbox: line 83: /opt/VirtualBox/VirtualBox: No such file or directory
/usr/bin/virtualbox: line 83: /opt/VirtualBox/VirtualBox: Success
root[impatiens]# sudo /etc/init.d/vboxdrv setup
sudo: /etc/init.d/vboxdrv: command not found
I haven't touched /opt/VirtualBox at all. At start-up, I also get a warning about vboxdrv failing to load. Is there something glaringly obvious I'm not doing?
Incidentally, I've tried to install VMWare Player, too, to see if that worked better. The 64-bit one wouldn't run, claiming I have the wrong architecture, despite uname telling me I have a 64-bit system. The 32-bit version tries to install, but fails for reasons it won't tell me.
