I installed VirtualBox, but when I run it, although it opens I get an error message in the terminal:
WARNING: The vboxdrv kernel module is not loaded. Either there is no module
         available for the current kernel ( or it failed to
         load. Please recompile the kernel module and install it by

           sudo /etc/init.d/vboxdrv setup

         You will not be able to start VMs until this problem is fixed.

When I do as advised I get:
sudo /etc/init.d/vboxdrv setup
Stopping VirtualBox kernel module ...done.
Recompiling VirtualBox kernel module ...failed!
  (Look at /var/log/vbox-install.log to find out what went wrong)

The message I find in the log is
/opt/VirtualBox/src/vboxdrv/build_in_tmp: line 94: make: command not found

Very Happy Hello.

make: command not found

You must have the devx.sfs for your version of Puppy to compile programs..
D/L is to mnt/home, enable it like any other .sfs, and reboot...

And the VBox must be for the Linux Kernel you are using, ie Lupu is

Oh, and you dont need to "sudo" in Puppy, you are already root...
Open a terminal and type whoami

Close the Windows, and open your eyes, to a whole new world
