Re: Virtual Box install problem on FC10

it says:

vboxdrv                93896  0

Ok, if I need to go back to square one (the 4th email of this chain)... I compiled the stuff and then I had

Failed to start the virtual machine Kids.

VirtualBox can't operate in VMX root mode. Please disable the KVM kernel extension, recompile your kernel and reboot (VERR_VMX_IN_VMX_ROOT_MODE).

Result Code:

NS_ERROR_FAILURE (0x80004005)




IConsole {9511bc54-15ee-4ddf-808e-472aba03809c}

How do I compile my kernel without this KVM kernel extension and what is the side effects of doing so?

Alas, while I can help you with sensible suggestions for installing
VirtualBox - I've never used it so I can't comment on anything the
application spits out...

Just one question - what does "/sbin/lsmod | grep vboxdrv" say? (this
is just to check that the VirtualBox kernel module *is* actually
loaded - that's about as far as I can go)
