I just want to work with VirtualBox but now I am getting this type of error.

I could not find a proper solution.

Kernel driver not installed (rc=-1908)

Make sure the kernel module has been loaded successfully.

where: suplibOsInit what: 3 VERR_VM_DRIVER_NOT_INSTALLED (-1908) - The support driver is not installed. On linux, open returned ENOENT.


The complete log is attached. Please If someone can help me.

Trying every other option to solve this, I finally found this in another thread:

Reboot the mac in recovery mode ("option-command-R" while booting)

Open a terminal

Type:
spctl kext-consent add VB5E2TV963

The last word is the code for the oracle virtualbox

Reboot the mac in ordinary mode

After this I could again open virtualbox and work as usual!
