[Solved] Guake; I Receive Vbox Kernel Error message.

Hello,

I decided to install guake because I love drop-down terminals, and now when I login to my system I receive a message that says something along the lines of "Virtualbox: The Vbox kernel service is not running, exiting" How can I fix this??? It is also causing two network managers to pop up in my system tray on tint2

Check pacman for Virtualbox, we ship with guest utils to allow archbang to run under Virtualbox. Removing package should stop error....

Re: [Solved] Guake; I Receive Vbox Kernel Error message.

This will look for installed packages containing 'virtualbox'

$ pacman -Q|grep -i virtual

This will search the repo for packages containing 'virtual' regardless of whether they're installed or not

$ pacman -Ss virtual

This means you can build commands to do more complex transactions (the extra 'q' in the Qq flags means to drop the version number from the output):

pacman -Rns $(pacman -Qq|grep -i virtualbox)

Re: [Solved] Guake; I Receive Vbox Kernel Error message.

Yes I figured it out shortly after that reply I made. Lol, i forgot the -Q in front |grep it helps to spell it right, if you want it to work. I found the package name was virtualbox-guest-utils so I ran

$ pacman -Rsn virtualbox-guest-utils 

as root, this uninstalled virtualbox-guest-utils and all It's dependency, problem solved thanks big_smile

No thank you, think it might be time to drop package from live ISO. Only really used it to help with testing. Most can certainly manage without it.
