Help me with install/setup

when i install virtualbox i keep geting this error WARNING: The vboxdrv kernel module is not loaded. Either there is no module
available for the current kernel (6.1.12-1-MANJARO) or it failed to
load. Please recompile the kernel module and install it by

       sudo /sbin/vboxconfig

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

if i reinstall it still the same
sudo pacman -S virtualbox virtualbox-host-dkms linux-headers
sudo modprobe vboxnetadp vboxnetflt vboxdrv
i keep using this command still the same *******error
sorry for the bad humor

Did you reboot your machine after installing it?

(PS: I adjusted your topic title to include your actual topic)

Welcome to the Forum, a bit late welcome but still :+1:
Please also provide your system info and use topic titles that reflects your problem instead of a general question or request.
Also your problem is obviously not related to Gnome at all…

Please see:

yes i reboot it two times

If you go the dkms route, then linux-headers is not the correct package for the

your system is running. You need to install the linux61-headers package.

Did you check the info at: VirtualBox - ArchWiki, especially section 1.3 :thinking:

I won’t be able to assist more because i don’t use VirtualBox at moment…
