you need to download the kernel source which is an sfs file
load this and then there is a way to build the vboxdrv so VirtualBox will start

use the SFS-Loader in puppy linux to load the kernel source SFS file then
in a terminal ->
Code:
/etc/init.d/vboxdrv setup


it is something along these lines.
then restart VirtualBox

I was looking at the ubuntu forum where I was told to do a:
modprobe vboxdrv on terminal which produced output below. Where do I get vboxdrv for tahrpup?.

Agree with that due to error message posted.

To compile stuff in puppy you need

1. Devx
2. Kernel sources
3. Kernel headers

These can be downloaded from usually the same directory tree you got puppy from.
These packages are operating system specific. You need the exact versions produced for your specific version of tahrpup.

I believe some of the tahr pup versions overlap due to the kernel being the same.
The packages are kernel specific.

I have the devx and kernel packages. I can't find kernel headers.

the headers will be in the kernel sources sfs I think. I have done this a few times successfully but it has been awhile......

I just got VirtualBox Version 5.2.18 r124319 (Qt5.9.5) going in
a 32bit BIonic using the 4.17.9 kernel I compiled

first download your matching kernel sources and install using SFS-Load_on_the_Fly mine was 4.17.9 that I already have.

then I downloaded virtualbox-5.2_5.2.18-124319~Ubuntu~zesty_i386.deb
from https://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/Linux_Downloads

then IMPORTANT (you might have to enter it 2x in the terminal)
Code:
addgroup vboxusers


using the PPM installed

libcurl3
libQt5x11extras
libQt5widgets
libQt5printsupport

now click on the virtualbox-5.2_5.2.18-124319~Ubuntu~zesty_i386.deb and let it install. Now in a terminal
Code:
vboxconfig

let it finish completely now from the menu or terminal start virtualbox

Code:
VirtualBox

when the vboxdrv module is compiled and VirtualBox is running you can unload the kernel source SFS!!

Good Luck!!

Thanks for the latest virtualbox. Just downloaded it and tried to run it; resulting in the output in the attachment. The log file reads:

Makefile:183: *** Error: unable to find the sources of your current Linux kernel. Specify KERN_DIR=<directory> and run Make again. Stop.

Hi gabtech,
Did you try the SFS from norgo?

To load the SFS

1.Copy the SFS to /mnt/home/

2.Then open the program Menu -->Setup --SFS-Load on-the-fly

3. Load the SFS

After that successfully runs you should have a menu entry usually in Menu -->System --Oracle VM Virtualbox
