Fedora 14 – VirtualBox not starting

When starting VirtualBox i got the error:
VirtualBox: supR3HardenedMainGetTrustedMain: dlopen(“/usr/lib/virtualbox/VirtualBox.so”,) failed: VBoxVMM.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

It took me some time to find a solution, it’s a dirty trick, but it actually works;

on 32 bit systems:
find /usr/lib/virtualbox/ -name \*.so -exec ln -s -t /lib '{}' ';'

on 64 bit systems:
find /usr/lib64/virtualbox/ -name \*.so -exec ln -s -t /lib64 '{}' ';'
