[Solved] Ubuntu 16.04 as host : Problem at startup, run vboxconfil

Postby 4sStylZ » 12. Oct 2017, 10:14

Hi people,

I use a 16.04 Ubuntu (in fact, Elementary OS based on Ubuntu 16.04). I have installed today the AMD64 build and I can start the vm manager. I have created a new WIN10 vm but she don’t start.

The message is this :

Code: Select all   Expand viewCollapse view
There were problems setting up VirtualBox.  To re-start the set-up process, run
  /sbin/vboxconfig


In fact the issue is the same when I launch the command as root.

Code: Select all   Expand viewCollapse view
root@xxx:/home/xxx# /sbin/vboxconfig
vboxdrv.sh: Stopping VirtualBox services.
vboxdrv.sh: Building VirtualBox kernel modules.
vboxdrv.sh: Starting VirtualBox services.
vboxdrv.sh: Building VirtualBox kernel modules.
vboxdrv.sh: failed: modprobe vboxdrv failed. Please use 'dmesg' to find out why.

There were problems setting up VirtualBox.  To re-start the set-up process, run
  /sbin/vboxconfig
as root.


That’s the dmesg result attached on the issue.

dmesg does not show an issue. Look at /var/log/vbox-install.log. Also where did you get the install from, virtualbox.org or the OS distro?

I am sorry but I doesn’t have this file on my computer.
For the version installed, she was provided by the virtualbox website and installed by dpkg -i xxx.deb

Odd, when VirtualBox installs it always creates a log file. Post the information of the following from the hosts terminal:
Code: Select all   Expand viewCollapse view
ls -al /var/log

Loool I wonder why I haven’t understand what you mean by /ver/log/vbox-install.log. :lol:

Ok so, it’s in upload attachment.

I would purge the current install and then install the official build again but this time use dpkg from the terminal and watch closely for any errors or warnings.

A mobprob was in error and in fact I have to disable the secure boot of my computer and enable the SCM (I don’t know what is this). Thank’s to the fedora forum.

Bye.

Considere this closed.
