virtualbox kernel driver not loaded


I installed Virtualbox from slackbuilds.org.
If i start the created virtual machine, i get the following error:

Code:
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

'/sbin/rcvboxdrv setup'

as root. If it is available in your distribution, you should install the DKMS package first. This package keeps track of Linux kernel changes and recompiles the vboxdrv kernel module if necessary.

where: suplibOsInit what: 3 VERR_VM_DRIVER_NOT_INSTALLED (-1908) - The support driver is not installed. On linux, open returned ENOENT.

Is there a question here? Did you try to load the module? Is your user allowed to use VirtualBox?

The user is member of the vboxusers group.
the command /sbin/rcvboxdrv doesn't exist.
The question seemed obvious to me: How can i load the module. Or rather: make virtualbox work.
