for Ubuntu, like...
Code:
sudo usermod -Ga vboxusers [username]
That's what the error message says.

I usually insert the module manually before starting VirtualBox like:

Code:
sudo modprobe vboxdrv

Ok, the 1.6.0 VBox is a bit messed up actually. If you use bridged networking, you are very likely to have an issue, although you have a better chance of it working if you are running Hardy.

I usually run it on RH based systems, and starting vboxdrv and vboxnet from /etc/init.d/ do the trick. If you're in the vboxusers group (don't forget, once you add yourself, you have to log out and log back in for it to take effect) you should have permissions on /dev/vboxdrv--it's 660 for root:vboxusers.
Could you have forgotten to add yourself to the vboxuser group, or done what I tend to do and forgot to log out and log back in?
@disi, I'm no VBox expert, but that error seems to be more of permissions on the /dev/vboxdrv than the module not being there. In Ubuntu IIRC, I think it might have loaded and kept the module there--I don't recollect having to do a modprobe on it. Right now, on one machine, I'm running subversion, but that's a special case--libs and binaries are contained in a $HOME/vbox directory, though the module does go into /usr/modules.

I repeat, however, that if you used bridged networking, and judging from what I've seen on Vbox forums, even, at times, with the default NAT networking, there have been isuses with 1.6.0. It's fixed according to the developer who posted on the thread, but the fix isn't present till 1.6.2--that was according to his post, subversion, at the time I got it, was 1.6.1 and worked without issues.

My only VBox article is on bridging--and, as I said above, it's not working on VBox 1.6.

Of course, if one runs into trouble on wireless bridging in VirtualBox and searches their forums, it seems that most of their users link to my site as a solution.

Hey, sorry for hijacking. Do you know what video driver to use for Linux in VBox to get better resolution than plain VGA?

Good to see you guys here!

Hi Speedy.
I'm not a moderator, but firstly, thank you for being kind enough to post the solution after finding it.
However, please try to avoid thread hijacking. We're trying to get people into good habits.

On the other hand, it's more important that you posted the solution after finding it, so if you lose one point for hijacking, you get 5 points for remembering to post the solution. You're 4 points ahead in my book.

Hi scottro
I'm a rotten selfish individualist by nature ... yep ... but also the picture-straightener type (Monk-like) - which means I do not like unfinished business. And, my understanding of FOSS and it's users is we get and give. BTW, I also use turn lights every time I turn or change the lane, weird, isn't it? I've the strange idea this helps other drivers.
Hope this forum gets going, lots of good people here.
