Guys, I have a problem some time ago, that I can not use Virtualbox. I installed Fedora 22 on a virtual machine and tried to install virtualbox it, functioned normally, only on my pc not (which is also the fedora 22). Whenever I run command "service vboxdrv setup" or "/etc/init.d/vboxdrv setup" have the following output:

/etc/init.d/vboxdrv setup
Stopping VirtualBox kernel modules [OK]
Uninstalling old DKMS VirtualBox kernel modules [OK]
Trying to register the VirtualBox kernel modules using DKMS [OK]
Starting VirtualBox kernel modules [FAILED]
   (modprobe vboxdrv failed. Please use 'dmesg' to find out why)

When I run the "dmesg" command, nothing appears related to Virtualbox.

I'm using Gnome Boxes, but it has something that does not work right, but virtualbox works.

If you can give me a direction there.

You really should look carefully to dmesg or try modprobe vboxdrv manually.

Most common cause is, that the kernel module was not compiled properly from DKMS. You have to find out why.
