having kde4 fully installed might be the difference.
my system has *no* kde4
at all. i started with xfce, then added the kde3 repo. and i have taboo-ed
out libstrigi and kdm, basically killing any attempt to "upgrade" the system
the two vbox versions i tried are the 4.0 from suse, then 4.1 from oracle.
i did try the console start, that's how i did the /etc/init.d/vboxdrv setup
and the system was recompiled. and that's where i saw the error that vbox can
not open an x window.
So you ran vboxdrv setup as root and it compiled successfully. Then
you tried virtual box from terminal window as normal user? On my box
it starts correctly.
Is your user a member of vboxusers group?
Hard to believe virtualbox has dependencies on kde4. I ran the same
virtualbox version on 11.1 with kde3 (though in 11.1 some kde4
libraries were also installed). Should be something different.
