I am trying to run VirtualBVox under my under my system, a FreeBSD (p1)
11 amd64 box with a radeon R5 230 (Caicos) card.
I did the following and rebooted :
a) installed virtualbox-ose via pkg
b) inserted vboxnet_enable="YES" in /etc/rc.conf
c) added self to users vboxusers with : 'pw groupmod vboxusers -m <X>'
d) added the following line to /etc/devfs.rules :
add path 'usb/*' mode 0660 group operator
Upon reboot, trying to run VirtualBox gets me :
libGL error: MESA-LOADER: failed to retrieve device information
libGL error: image driver extension not found
libGL error: failed to load driver: radeon
libGL error: failed to open drm device: Permission denied
libGL error: failed to load driver: r600

VERR_PERMISSION_DENIED (-10) - Permission denied.
When I run the groups command, I get different results based on
effective UID :
a) as root, when I run 'groups <X>', I spot vboxusers among the groups
b) as normal user, when I run groups I do not see vboxusers among my
I am therefore unable to run VirtualBox. What exactly could be the
problem that leads me into vboxusers not being among my groups ?
Thanks for any help
