I am using pcbsd 9.2 , since loaded system updates can't start virtualbox machines message is:
Failed to load VMMR0.r0 (VERR_SUPLIB_OWNER_NOT_ROOT).,
I checked that root is owner of VMMR0.r0. How I can fix it ???

I have run into this a couple times on various systems.
The problem is that the owner of "/usr" is set to your user for some reason (still don't know why it is like this on a some random systems).
Just run (as root): "chown root:wheel /usr" in order to fix it.
