I had vmware player installed but decided to replace it with VirtualBox. I installed it from aptitude normally:
apt-get install virtualbox-ose
Everything went fine and it was able to build/insert kernel modules. I verified this by:
lsmod | grep vbox
with the output:
vboxpci 23200 0 vboxnetadp 13382 0 vboxnetflt 23441 0 vboxdrv 287082 4 vboxpci,vboxnetadp,vboxnetflt
However, there was something weird in the installation, I got:
* Stopping VirtualBox kernel modules [ OK ] * Starting VirtualBox kernel modules * No suitable module for running kernel found [fail]
I can normally create and start guest machines. However, the problem is that the virtual network interface that is created by virtual box is not shown when issuing:
As a result I can't connect to the guest from ssh or http or even ping.
Note: guest network mode is NAT and it is bound to a dhcp IP 10.0.2.15 from dchp server 10.0.2.2!
What am I missing here?
