I am new to Ubuntu and Linux and need a little help.
I used synaptic to get virtualbox and there seemed to be many options.
I am at the point where I have made a blank virtual drive and now I want
to start it and in stall xp in it. I press start and then it tells me
that the right Ctrl button gets me out -- OK
then I get the following error message.
VirtualBox kernel driver not installed. The vboxdrv kernel module was
either not loaded or /dev/vboxdrv was not created for some reason.
Please install the virtualbox-ose-modules package for your kernel, e.g.
VBox status code: -1908 (VERR_VM_DRIVER_NOT_INSTALLED).
I then tried to reinstall "virtualbox-ose-modules-generic.." to see if
this would help but no it is still the same error message.
any Ideas about what I should do next would be greatly appreciated.
