We need a FAR more complete and clear description of the problem.
1. I assume you are running 4M Linux , and from your PS version 36.0. 37 is current, so why are you running 36?
2. You do not say if it is VirtualBox in the host, or a guest that is not starting. Please make it clear.
3. How exactly did you get VirtualBox? Can you either tell us exactly what you installed, or if it is applicable provide a link to the instructions you followed?


That should give us enough to make a start.

In addition, what OS is running as guest? Is it officially supported as valid guest OS? And please, make life for yourself and us easy and copy the text from terminal into forum [using code tags] instead of messing with images.

Hi,

What operating system are you trying to boot in VirtualBox (4MLinux? Version?).
What operating system are you using to run VirtualBox (4MLinux? Version?)

Because 4MLinux 36.0 is the latest stable version
I agree with the rest of your remarks.

This is a shot in the dark, but do you have kernel headers installed for the kernel in the host machine? VB needs them to work.

I think it needs headers to build kernel modules, not needed runtime.
