    I'm trying to install Masonux Linux on Sun VirtualBox, when i start the virtual machine, i immediately get this error :
    VirtualBox - Runtime Error

    Cannot access the kernel driver!
    Make sure the kernel module has been loaded successfully.
    I only have the abort button to click. When i click on abort i get this :
    Failed to open a session for the virtual machine Masonux.
    Virtual machine 'Masonux' has terminated unexpectedly during startup.

    Result Code:
    E_FAIL (0x80004005)
    Component:

    My system configuration is :

    3GB DDR2 RAM
    500GB+160GB HDDs Sata
    Gigabyte GA G31M S2L Motherboard
    Geforce 8800GT PCI-E Graphics card.

    Configuration applied to Virtual machine is :
    APCI enabled, IO APCI enabled
    PAE enabled, 256MB Ram
    128MB Video Ram, 3D acceleration enabled

    Check if the option is available : VT-x/AMD-v. This option is generally grayed out. If it is not grayed out, try to disable it. If still you have the same problem. Then the problem is that you didn't reboot your system after installation. Uninstall VirtualBox and reboot your PC. Install VirtualBox again. Then again Reboot your PC, it will then have no problem...
