Problem with virtualbox


So, i want to try some VM's in the Slackware.
As i remembered it's on by default, but it doesn't work anymore..
What i done wrong?
Code:
Callee RC: 
NS_ERROR_FACTORY_NOT_REGISTERED (0x80040154)
Code:
bash-5.0# virtualbox 
WARNING: The vboxdrv kernel module is not loaded. Either there is no module
         available for the current kernel (5.4.2) or it failed to
         load. Please recompile the kernel module and install it by

           sudo /sbin/rcvboxdrv setup

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

What version of VirtualBox are you trying to install?
You might want to try version 6.1, https://www.virtualbox.org/
and make sure virtualization support is turned on in your BIOS.

Edit in: I was just re-reading your post and, no, virtualbox is not installed by default. IIRC, it was never installed by default, but I could be wrong.
