I am using Fedora 12, with kernel stv-fedora

I have install VirtualBox OSE v3.1.4-1.fc12. When I start VirtualBox I get the following error:

Failed to start the virtual machine WinXP32.
Failed to open/create the internal network 'HostInterfaceNetworking-eth0' (VERR_SUPDRV_COMPONENT_NOT_FOUND).
One of the kernel modules was not successfully loaded. Make sure that no 
  kernel modules from an older version of VirtualBox exist. Then try to
  recompile and reload the kernel modules by executing '/etc/init.d/vboxdrv setup'

However, if I run /etc/init.d/vboxdrv setup I get this error:

-bash: /etc/init.d/vboxdrv: No such file or directory

How do I get rid of the error and run VirtualBox?

You just need to type:

sudo modprobe vboxnetftl

On my system (Arch Linux), the module was called vboxnetflt O.O (noticed the switched t and l). – Perseids Mar 10 at 9:36
