debian 9.9 VBoxClient Failed to connect to the VirtualBox kernel service , rc=verr_file_not_found

Postby HandDown » 29. Apr 2019, 14:44

host Windows 10
guest linux debian 9.9
uname -a
Linux machinename 4.9.0-9-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 4.9.168-1 (2019-04-12) x86_64 GNU/Linux

After
#apt update | apt full-upgrade

LinuxGuestAddition stop works. I was rerun VBoxLinuxGuestAddition.run. It doesnt help.

I downloaded debian 9.9 netinstal iso, and perform a clean install.
After that
#apt install module-assistant dkms linux-headers-$(uname- r) build-essentiales
#m-a update
#m-a prepare
#cd /media/cdrom
#sh ./VBoxLinuxAdditions.run

i've got cli window with this " VBoxClient Failed to connect to the VirtualBox kernel service , rc=verr_file_not_found" on screen
rerun "#sh ./VBoxLinuxAdditions.run "

this is output

I assume you followed the instructions quoted and restarted your guest OS.

Can you point out where in the user manual it tells you to install DKMS?

Sure you can. The only thing you can't do is post an offsite URL, which we don't want anyway. Attach images locally.

A short term (weekend) problem, only with the https service, and already fixed. Yes, websites go down sometimes. It's bound to come at an inconvenient time for somebody.

If you want to use the latest version for your host/guests, you should also consider doing the same for VirtualBox. Download the latest VirtualBox. As of this writing, that would be version 6.0.6.

If that doesn't work, you should try the latest test builds, and keep on trying them as they come fresh from the oven...
