I work on UBUNTU. And I have windows on my virtualbox. Yesterday when I updated my Ubuntu I am not able to start my virtualbox. It is giving me following error message.Please if anyone can help me.
The vboxdrv kernel module is not loaded. Either there is no module available for the current kernel (3.2.0-72-generic) or it failed to load. Please recompile the kernel module and install it by sudo /etc/init.d/vboxdrv setup You will not be able to start VMs until this problem is fixed.
After that I run the following command:
