Solved: virtualbox Kernel driver not installed (rc=-1908)
hi i have been trying to get virtualbox to run without success.
it will not let the vm start-up and produces the error message saying Kernel driver not installed (rc=-1908)
it tells me to
Code:
sudo /etc/init.d/vboxdrv setup
but when i run this it just retuns to a new line without doing anything. i have checked the init.d folder to ensure the file is there which it is but i still cant get it to run.
i have looked around the Internet but i have not seen this issue come up before. any guidance would be very helpful as i am scratching my head as to why it does not work.
i am running ubuntu 12.04 lts

thanks in advance
Rob
