vboxdrv kernel module is not loaded

HEy i am trying to run vagrant up to prepare quorum blockchain node, and got an error from Virtual box :

The vboxdrv kernel module is not loaded. Either there is no module
         available for the current kernel (4.15.4-1-zen) or it failed to
         load. Please recompile the kernel module and install it by

           sudo /sbin/vboxconfig

         You will not be able to start VMs until this problem is fixed.


as you can see i am using the archlinux zen kernel.
is there a problem with my install ? i installed the "linux headers" and the "virtualbox-host-dkms" modules.

That's the correct conclusion, once they're installed try starting virtualbox again.
