I installed virtualbox on my ubuntu 16.04 machine.But I am unable to run it. When I run
It gives me the following result
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 ran the command to install the virtualbox-dkms but it gave the following result
Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done virtualbox-dkms is already the newest version (5.0.40-dfsg-0ubuntu1.16.04.2). 0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 149 not upgraded.
I searched around and found this answer but I did not understand it and hence it could not help me. Any suggestions what I should do to get the virtualbox running ?
