I am having issues trying to run Virtual Box; which are the "
WARNING: The character device /dev/vboxdrv does not exist. Please install the virtualbox-dkms package and the appropriate headers, most likely linux-headers-generic. You will not be able to start VMs until this problem is fixed.
I have installed
virtualbox-dkms package, but I have no idea about the headers.
Also when trying to run a VM
Kernel driver not installed (rc=-1908)
The VirtualBox Linux kernel driver (vboxdrv) is either not loaded or there is a permission problem with /dev/vboxdrv. Please install virtualbox-dkms package and load the kernel module by executing
as root. If it is available in your distribution, you should install the DKMS package first. This package keeps track of Linux kernel changes and recompiles the vboxdrv kernel module if necessary.
3 VERR_VM_DRIVER_NOT_INSTALLED (-1908)- The support driver is not installed. On Linux, open returned ENOENT.
I cannot run
modprobe vboxdrv (yes, I run it with
modprobe: ERROR: could not insert 'vboxdrv': Operation not permitted
I think this is a common question but cannot find answers for Ubuntu 16.04, just outdated ones.
linux-headers-generic is installed but it still doesn't work.
