In order to install virtualbox-ose, Max have to downgrade from back to The detail installation steps see Debian Wiki Virtualbox.

To load the vboxdrv module at system startup, edit /etc/default/virtualbox-ose and set LOAD_VBOXDRV_MODULE to 1.

  1. Actually, a better solution is update system from lenny to squeeze with kernel 2.6.32. See 'Virtualbox comes back to live after upgrade from Lenny to Squeeze': http://jingfenghanmax.blogspot.com/2010/09/virtualbox-comes-back-to-live-after.html
