So, I have seen this problem addressed in many posts in the Linux Hosts forum, but I am getting this error rather frequently on my Mac. I’m running OS X 10.5.2 as the host and XP Professional SP 2 as the guest and recently when I have tried starting the VM I get this error: —– VirtualBox kernel driver not installed. 1908) The VirtualBox Linux kernel driver (vboxdrv) is either not loaded or there is a permission problem with /dev/vboxdrv. Also, updated kernel driver but not worked.What can be done to solve it?. Thought I’d give my 2 cents for those who use MACs.
Kernel driver not installed (rc1908) Make sure the kernel module has been loaded successfully. Kernel driver not installed (rc-1908) Please install the virtualbox-dkms package and execute ‘modprobe vboxdrv’ as root. So I tried to run what it suggested: Code: sudo apt-get install virtualbox-dkms Reading package lists. The VirtualBox Linux kernel driver (vboxdrv) is either not loaded or there is a permission problem with /dev/vboxdrv.
The first issue you might hit with VirtualBox 4.30 on OS X 10.9, could be a kernel driver not loaded has actually been well covered in this forum posting. I knew something was getting loaded differently at boot time, than when VirtualBox was freshly installed. Mac OS X on a Dell Mini 9In apple. MavericksVirtualBox. kernel driver not installed -1908. GUI gives this error: Kernel driver not installed (rc-1908). Make sure the kernel module has been loaded successfully. That looks like VirtualBox is complaining that the Kernel driver for Mac OS X isn’t installed. Is your VirtualBox install able to run other VMs?.
