But if you are replacing or upgrading the Kernel, then you get some minor problems to start and load the virtual machine.
Unable to start VirtualBox Due to Missing Kernel Module!
Virtualbox displays the following messages.

VirtualBox – Error in suplibOsinit
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
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 recompile the vboxdrv kernel module if necessary.
Next open the Terminal and type or copy there the next command.
sudo /etc/init.d/vboxdrv setup
press Enter and your password and Enter again. This may take a few minutes, just wait.
In the Terminal you will see text that tells you what your computer does!

Starting VirtualBox kernel modules:.
The VirtualBox kernel module is automatically installed on your system when you install VirtualBox. To keep up it with future kernel updates, for those Linux distributions which offer it most current ones we recommend installing Dynamic Kernel Module Support (DKMS).
