Fix error "'/etc/init.d/vboxdrv setup'" on Ubuntu 14.04.1 LTS

Got error "'/etc/init.d/vboxdrv setup'" on Ubuntu 14.04.1 LTS


Run root@d3330:~# apt-get --reinstall install virtualbox-dkms

And start virtualbox again.

Error detail:
--------------- error start ---------------------
Kernel driver not installed (rc=-1908)

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

'/etc/init.d/vboxdrv setup'

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 recompiles the vboxdrv kernel module if necessary.
--------------- error start ---------------------
