Discussions about using Linux guests in VirtualBox.
I'm using EDUBUNTU 7.10 and I've just installedd VBox to run WinXP.
When I try to run it the message box says:
" The VirtualBox kernel driver is not accessible to the current user. Make sure that the user has write permissions for /dev/vboxdrv by adding them to the vboxusers groups. You will need to logout for the change to take effect..
VBox status code: -1909 (VERR_VM_DRIVER_NOT_ACCESSIBLE). "
Now I cant't find the VBOXUSERS GROUPS to allow the permissions.
Thank you in advance

- Code: Select all Expand viewCollapse view
less /etc/group |grep vbox
it should be there, it's created during the installation. Add your current user to this group, close your session and log again, you should be able to use VirtualBox.

Normally, the graphic user interface (GUI) should offer a possibilitiy to add groups.
In Ubuntu 7.10 (Gnome) it is in the menu sytem/administration.
In VirtualBox for 7.10, USB is disabled. Solutions can be found in the forum and the documentation.
