Virtualbox Kali error

hi, i am having a problem starting up Kali in Virtualbox
(Manjaro KDE Plasma 5.20.5)
i followed all the steps, but when pressing start i get this error…
The virtual machine ‘Kali Linux’ has terminated unexpectedly during startup with exit code 1 (0x1).

apparently it has something to do with the VirtualBox Linux kernel driver, that it is either not loaded or not set up correctly?
i tried other set ups for it but nothing worked.
it also tells me that i need to execute /sbin/vboxconfig
but guess what? that doesn’t work either!

any help will be appreciated.
i need Kali for my studies and i want it to run in virtualbox instead of from USB Boot (what i am doing atm).

You should really direct issues using Kali Linux to the Kali Linux forum. The issue has nothing to do with Manjaro.


thank you!
