The main reason I suggested virtualbox is because there are packages made by Debian. The Debian ose packages are well tested and should work seamlessly: the same can not necessarily be said for the packages from Oracle. Is there any reason you can't use the virtualbox packaged by Debian? Version 4.2.10 is available for wheezy in backports. See http://packages.debian.org/wheezy-backports/virtualbox
i added myself to the vboxusers and installed guest additions and everything works well until i reboot system.
everytime i start virtualbox it gives me an error msg thts The VirtualBox Linux kernel driver (vboxdrv) is either not loaded or there is a permission problem with /dev/vboxdrv. Please reinstall the kernel module by executing
as root. Users of Ubuntu, Fedora or Mandriva should install the DKMS package first. This package keeps track of Linux kernel changes and recompiles the vboxdrv kernel module if necessary. but when i check the necessary packages i.e dkms, build essentials, linux-headers are all installed. am stuck wht can i do next?
Sorry I don't know what is going on here... I've never used the proprietary version of virtualbox. Have you checked it the module really is loaded? Have you checked if /dev/vboxdrv exists and what its permissions are?
