Virtualbox Install fails

  • When installing virtualbox-plugin,I get this message:

    It's absolutely true - there is neither user "vbox" nor group "vboxusers".

    But why? Even if I purge all packages relating with virtualbox and reinstall with webIf or commandline - there is no change.

    Did you install from the omv web interface? What is the output of: dpkg -l | grep -E "openm|virt"

    omv 6.9.0-1 Shaitan | 64 bit | 6.2 proxmox kernel

    plugins :: omvextrasorg 6.3.1 | kvm 6.2.16 | compose 6.10.3 | cputemp 6.1.3 | mergerfs 6.3.7 plugins source code and issue tracker - github

    Please try ctrl-shift-R and read this before posting a question.

    Please put your OMV system details in your signature.
    Please don't PM for support... Too many PMs!

  • Yes, I did install it via webIf. But due to difficulties with collectd/rrchached and vbox I decided to switch to OMV-3.

    This works ootb with vbox and other plugins from omv-extras.
    Thanks for your help and work.
