Thanks,
Maurizio

"How" recent? Does your BIOS offer virtualization support? Are you new to Linux?

Thank you Semme, it works !
I have installed the kernel driver version 5.0.14 via SlackBuilds.org:

https://slackbuilds.org/repository/14.2/system/virtualbox-kernel/

and the VirtualBox userland application version 5.1.8 downloading and executing

http://download.virtualbox.org/virtualbox/5.1.8/VirtualBox-5.1.8-111374-Linux_amd64.run

I am testing this version of VirtualBox with a 32-bit Windows 7 VM and it works, but is there a newer version of the kernel driver ?
