Today, after updating my Ubuntu 14.04.4 with a new kernel I found myself unable to run my VirtualBox guest machine. But, I wasn’t scared, since I did this many times before… To my surprise this time wasn’t the same… the command VirtualBox offered, this time threw an error!
That’s what I tried to do, and what was suggested by VirtualBox:
$ sudo /sbin/rcvboxdrv setup
The command prompt returned me:
Bad argument setup
Really?!?! I did this like hundred times before! What’s happened?!
So, I went to google it, and that is what I found:
I had to type this command to update my new kernel with VirtualBox modules:
$ sudo /usr/lib/virtualbox/vboxdrv.sh setup
And this did the trick for me!
Come on Oracle, this is a great product… I know it’s open source.. but change your error message, please! Your suggestion is a little outdated!
P.S. Thanks to askubuntu.com for the solution!
