    I'm out of ideas.

    The problem is that VirtualBox needs a kernel module called vboxdrv in order to run, and this module needs to be matched to your running kernel. You should have been able to install that in the previous step (apt-get install ....), but for some reason it couldn't find it. Then I asked you to search the cache for it (apt-cache search ...), but it couldn't find any possibilities.

    The only idea I have left is to download the source, compile it yourself, and then insert it into the running kernel, but that doesn't sound like fun.

    Sorry.

    This might work, but it might be awkward to figure out exactly which files you need.

    Also, it's important (I think) that she's running the same kernel as you. You can figure out the kernel you've got by executing the following,
    Code:
    uname -r
