I have installed GenyMotion and its dependencies(Virtual Box, ...) from AUR. Now I'm trying to run a device in GenyMotion emulator but gets me following error:

Unable to load VirtualBox engine. Make sure that you have installed it correctly before starting Genymotion. For more information refer to: https://cloud.genymotion.com/page/faq/#vbox

P.S :

You can see the log content in ~/.Genymobile/genymotion-player.log :

Jan 7 13:19:58 [Genymotion Player] [Error] VBoxManage ("hostonlyif", "create") returns 1 
Jan 7 13:19:58 [Genymotion Player] [Error] Output command: "0%...
Progress state: NS_ERROR_FAILURE
VBoxManage: error: Failed to create the host-only adapter
VBoxManage: error: VBoxNetAdpCtl: Error while adding new interface: failed to open /dev/vboxnetctl: No such file or directory

VBoxManage: error: Context: "int handleCreate(HandlerArg*, int, int*)" at line 66 of file VBoxManageHostonly.cpp" 

For Arch Linux try :

$ sudo vboxreload

And for Mac try :

$ sudo /Library/StartupItems/VirtualBox/VirtualBox restart
