VirtualBox kernel driver not installed. The vboxdrv kernel module was either not loaded or /dev/vboxdrv was not created for some reason. Re-setup the kernel module by executing ‘/etc/init.d/vboxdrv setup’ as root.
VBox status code: -1908 (VERR_VM_DRIVER_NOT_INSTALLED).
If you’ve faced this error after installing VirtualBox, then the vboxdrv kernel module hasn’t loaded properly.
This bug existed on openSUSE 10.3 and ah it exists on 11.0 too.
So, here’s a workaround.
Run modprobe vboxdrv as root.
Relaunch your VirtualBox if already open.
This will dynamically load vboxdrv module onto the kernel.
Note that on reboot the module is not loaded. To make the module load on boot, there are two ways.
1. Open /etc/sysconfig/kernel with your favorite text editor, search for the line containing MODULES_LOADED_ON_BOOT, and add vboxdrv to make it look like this:
Reboot for the changes to take effect.
Note: You may already have other modules within “” . Don’t delete them, just append ,vboxdrv to the list.
2. Going the GUI way, open your Yast2 -> System -> /etc/sysconfig Editor
On the left side of the newly popped up form, go to System->Kernel->MODULES_LOADED_ON_BOOT
Once there, type vboxdrv in the dropdown menu on the right and click Finish.
This should popup another dialog box. Just accept it and you’re done.
Reboot to see the changes.
