Description

Problem reported in # 918:
Since loaded system updates on 9.2 or 10 (stable) can't start virtualbox machines message is: Failed to load VMMR0.r0 (VERR_SUPLIB_OWNER_NOT_ROOT), suggested solution "Just run (as root): "chown root:wheel /usr" does not work,
there is no problem with pcbsd 9.1 - virtualbox works fine after system update.

You could have just reopened the other ticket...

It might not be the /usr directory that has the wrong owner if the fix did not work for you.
Try running "ls -ld <directory>" on the following directories and look for one that does not list "root wheel" as the owner:
/usr
/usr/local/
/usr/local/lib
/usr/local/lib/virtualbox

Once you find the directory with the wrong permissions, then run the previously fixed command to remedy the situation:
"chown root:wheel <directory>" (as root)
