VirtualBox is not working

If your system has EFI Secure Boot enabled you may also need to sign the kernel modules (vboxdrv, vboxnetflt, vboxnetadp, vboxpci) before you can load them. Please see your Linux system’s documentation for more information.


A full inxi output might be of some help here. Is Manjaro the host? Which kernel? Is virtualbox-host-dkms or linuxXX-virtualbox-host-modules installed?

Is your user a member of vboxusers group?
Upon setup did you run the command sudo modprobe vboxdrv

Do other VM’s work? Is the system fully updated?

There simply isn’t enough information here to address the issue.

virtualbox -v ==> 7.0.8-2
