LMDE: VirtualBox kernel service is not running

Operating system lmde

Linux y430p 3.16.0-4-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 3.16.7-ckt7-1 (2015-03-01) x86_64 GNU/Linux

VirtualBox is not installed. It seems that the system comes with something about it. It used to be nothing. A few months ago, every time I turned on the computer, I had a warning message:

VBoxClient: the VirtualBox kernel service is not running. Exiting.

Although it doesn’t affect the use, it’s annoying to see</ p>

After searching for a long time, it seems that this related post is similar to me</ p>

So I also unloaded the bags:

sudo aptitude remove virtualbox-guest-utils virtualbox-guest-x11 virtualbox-guest-dkms

However, the restart is successful, or report that warning.

Then clear the relevant configuration to try – also deleted a lot of old packages, do not know will hang. I’m a little afraid now. After all, the system has hung up many times, and now I dare not upgrade without brain.

is mainly afraid of the kernel.

# Clear all residual configuration files of deleted packages
dpkg -l |grep ^rc|awk '{print $2}' |sudo xargs dpkg -P

I’ll restart it.

Well, it’s rebooted. It’s alive. 🙂

The bad information didn’t come out at last. :weary:
