pacman -Si linux
sudo pacman -S linux-headers
# will install DKMS properly
sudo pacman -S virtualbox virtualbox-guest-iso
# now this command should work :)
sudo modprobe -a vboxdrv vboxnetflt vboxpci vboxnetadp
# you may run this
sudo /sbin/rcvboxdrv -h
# add current user to vboxusers group
sudo gpasswd -a $USER vboxusers
# now add entries to /etc/modules-load.d/virtualbox.conf
# for startup
vim /etc/modules-load.d/virtualbox.conf
