virtualbox-ose problem


I installed this package from slackbuilds.org. When it was launched, i got the text below in rxvt:

"WARNING: The vboxdrv kernel module is not loaded. Either there is no module
available for the current kernel (2.6.37.6-smp) or it failed to
load. Please recompile the kernel module and install it by

sudo /etc/init.d/vboxdrv setup

You will not be able to start VMs until this problem is fixed."

There is no vboxdrv in /etc/init.d/ and /dev/, but in /etc/rc.d/rc.vboxdrv

And i recompiled the kernel module and installed it by /etc/rc.d/rc.vboxdrv setup, i got :

"Not implemented! Please use the virtualbox-kernel.SlackBuild available at SlackBuilds.org instead."

What should i do?

If you installed the virtualbox-kernel package (from slackbuilds.org), you should just be able to do a
Code:
/etc/rc.d/rc.vboxdrv start
To load the kernel module, then try running virtualbox.
