Virtualbox-dkms install error

Posted on: Sep 28 2013 Category :Linux > Ubuntu Views: 820 | Subscribe

Hello,I'm running Ubuntu 12.04.3. Whenever I want to install Virtualbox, a system error pops up when Virtualbox is installed. Virtualbox itself installed fine, but it's the virtualbox-dkms that won't install properly. I tried installing it with both the Software Centre and Synaptic. Same result.Then I tried installing virtualbox-dkms via the terminal after removing it first: Code:jonas@jonas-desktop:~$ sudo apt-get install virtualbox-dkms Pakketlijsten worden ingelezen... KlaarBoom van vereisten wordt opgebouwd De status informatie wordt gelezen...

I'm running the default kernel, so no custom compiled one or something.Does anyone have a solution for this?Thank you in advance.
