Here is the fail message from vbox-install.log: DKMS:

Failed to install using DKMS, attempting to install without
Makefile:183: *** Error: unable to find the sources of your current Linux kernel. Specify KERN_DIR=<directory> and run Make again.  Stop.

I guess I could also ask what is a kernel?

sudo apt-get install dkms build-essential linux-headers-generic
sudo /etc/init.d/vboxdrv setup
