    @simon
    Although six weeks are gone since your question, just a hint:
    I just installed VirtualBox-5 on my Fedora-21 box. The script ‘vboxdrv.sh’ did the job for me:
    # /usr/lib/virtualbox/vboxdrv.sh setup

    Hello,
    sorry for my poor English… I fail to install on Centos 7 at start stem, neither of these commands succeed:
    # /etc/init.d/vboxdrv setup
    OR
    # service vboxdrv setup

    =>

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

    service vboxdrv setup
    The service command supports only basic LSB actions (start, stop, restart, try-restart, reload, force-reload, status). For other actions, please try to use systemctl.

    I found no error in /var/log/vbox-install.log

    Any hints ? Thanks !

      @Simon,
      Have you correctly installed and enabled VirtualBox repository under /etc/yum.repos.d/ directory in your CentOS 7?
