Check with lsmod and try to load with rcvboxdrv start which probably
tells you that the kernel module doesn't fit.
Then you can try to recompile it by using "rcvboxdrv setup". (At least
that's how it works with the non-GPL version.


That did it. It runs just fine as 'root' now. Still doesnt work
running under my username, but this will at least work for now until a
fixed version makes it into the repos.


There is nothing to fix except permissions on some of the files that
changed since you ran it as root. Check the ownership of your files under
.VirtualBox and under /tmp and your user should start working again.
