Hi guys

Justed wanted to find out if anyone has come accross the below error while trying to create a host network interface in VirtualBox in Fedora? Checked in VirtualBox forums but no luck. I am using VirtualBox Version 5.0.24_RPMFusion r108355

VBoxNetAdpCtl: Error while adding new interface: failed to open /dev/vboxnetctl: No such file or directory.

That is a VirtualBox question, not about Fedora, please review virt-manager and use kvm as hypervisor, everything will work out the box.

After loading these modules, I was able to add a host only network interface.

modprobe vboxnetadp
modprobe vboxnetflt
modprobe vboxpci
