Im used with that virtualbox is having support for usb in other distros, but in pardus virtualbox it seems to be gone.

Can that be added?

It cant because only the non-open source version supports USB, but I installed this version by muself which wasnt much of a problem.

Can add that kernel-source needs to be installed from pisi if you are planning to use virtualbox from their site.

Thank you, now it works for me too. But how do I perform: "/etc/init.d/vboxdrv start" at boot time?

Since I got this message.

As our installer does not recognize your Linux distribution, we were unable to
set up the initialization script vboxnet correctly.  The script has been copied
copied to the /etc/init.d directory.  You should set up your system to start
it at system start, or start it manually before using VirtualBox.

If you would like to help us add support for your distribution, please open a
new ticket on http://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/Bugtracker.
VirtualBox has been installed successfully.

Edit: I've posted a ticket for Pardus support at virtual box.

Zinden, when you run the configure command, it'll look and tell you if you need anything else.  I needed aspci installed, since I have an Intel laptop.

trixion - Do you want to have virtual box autostart when you boot?

No, but I want the ability to start virtualbox started at boot

I haven't run into any problems, but I did this anyway.  Open Tasma --> System --> User Manager.  Select your name and hit edit.  In the right hand corner, you should see a check box that says "Show all groups".  Check the box and scroll down the groups list until you see vboxusers.  Check that box and hit apply then close.  You'll have to log out and in again or at the worst, reboot, but that should solve that.
