Kernel Driver Not installed (rc=1908)

Postby FabJapan » 13. Aug 2021, 09:07

Hi Guys,
I recently upgraded my Ubuntu machine to 21.04 and since then, I am not able to start a VM session on VBox.
Attached is the error message I have.

So I followed instruction and tried running /sbin/vboxconfig but did not work.
Then I checked my EFI setting and confirmed that Secure boot is disabled.

So I am not really sure what I should do next...
Below is the 'vbox-setup.log' file content so I would appreciate if someone could guide me towards the next steps.
Let me klnow if you need more information as well.
Thank you in advance !!

Building the main VirtualBox module.

I would try a complete uninstall, then check the headers per the prerequisites https://www.virtualbox.org/manual/ch02. ... nux-prereq then reinstall Virtualbox.
