Cannot start virtualbox

I've googled quite awhile and can't fnd out why this is occuring.

When I start virtualbox with the command

virtualbox

I get the following lines:

VirtualBox: Error -610 in supR3HardenedMainInitRuntime!
VirtualBox: dlopen("/usr/lib/virtualbox/VBoxRT.so",) failed: <NULL>

VirtualBox: Tip! It may help to reinstall VirtualBox.

I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling all of virtualbox, as well as reading https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Vi … el_modules

Any help is appreciated. Thank you!

Re: Cannot start virtualbox

Have you rebooted since your last kernel update?

Do you have the extension pack installed ('virtualbox-ext-oracle' in the AUR)?

Re: Cannot start virtualbox

I reinstalled the kernel after I saw VirtualBox was having this problem, and yes, I rebooted. And reinstalled at least virtualbox-host-modules-arch after that reboot and tried the executable again. I do not have the extension pack installed.

Re: Cannot start virtualbox

I fixed the issue by doing

sudo chown root:root /usr
sudo chown root:root /usr/lib
sudo chown root:root /usr/lib/virtualbox

and rebooting. I got the idea from a Manjaro post at https://forum.manjaro.org/t/virtualbox- … rt/60373/2

I have no idea how /usr was owned by anything other than root.

Re: Cannot start virtualbox

Post the ownership / permission settings of those folders before you changed them and we might be able to help with that.


Multi-init booting with apg Openrc and systemd coexisting
Automounting : not needed, i prefer pmount
Aur helpers : makepkg + my own local repo === rarely need them
