changing permissions to allow virtual box to start without error

Greenhorn here. I installed Sun's virtual box 3.1 under Ubuntu 9.04. It worked flawlessly. I upgraded to to 9.10 and know I get a kernel error.
Now I cannot get Windows to load. Can someone shed some light on this?

Hi, you just need to reinstall vBox.

Generally the case after upgrading the kernel.

When you reinstall vBox you should see, it will build the kernel modules it requires for networks and 1 or 2 others.

cheers, Glenn

ps. Welcome to LQ.
