I downloaded ubuntu-8.10-alternate-i386.iso, wrote the disk and with the
computer running I inserted the disk and chose to upgrade. I may have
messed up when I opted to keep the old versions of the menus because on
reboot I was still in Hardy with no grub option to go to Intrepid. There
are minor changes to 8.04 that have pleased me except for my Sun Systems
Virtual Box. The following message is received when I attempt to start
my WinXP machine.
The VirtualBox kernel driver is not accessible to the current user. Make
sure that the user has write permissions for /dev/vboxdrv by adding them
to the vboxusers groups. You will need to logout for the change to take
VBox status code: -1909 (VERR_VM_DRIVER_NOT_ACCESSIBLE).
I checked the permissions under the GUI Manage Groups and Users and I'm
still there. I tried to delete and redo the permissions but it will not
do it. I need to dop the same operation once more for my sister-in-law
and I really need help.
Thank everyone in advavce.
