Hi Experts,

I am trying to setup a Virtual box in Gentoo Server, but facing some issues with it. I have followed the below link :-

http://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/VirtualBox

Quote:
emerge --ask app-emulation/virtualbox
gpasswd -a arun vboxusers

modprobe vboxdrv
modprobe vboxnetadp
modprobe vboxnetflt

eselect profile list
[1] default/linux/amd64/13.0 *

su - arun
Virtualbox
-su: Virtualbox: command not found


I am not sure what I am missing here. Appreciate all your help in advance.

root #gpasswd -a <user> vboxguest
Changes will not take effect until the user signs out and then signs in again (re-logins).

Adding user arun to group vboxguest
# su - arun
~ $ VirtualBox
-su: VirtualBox: command not found

I think you also have to create virtualbox users group.
I missed that part on my last round with virtualbox.

You also have to be part of the vboxusers group.

However when I try to add the groups, it says that they exists.

Quote:
# groupadd vboxusers
groupadd: group 'vboxusers' already exists
# groupadd vboxguest
groupadd: group 'vboxguest' already exists
