I am running Lubuntu 16.04 LTS 64-bit with boinc version 7.6.31 (installed from ubuntu repository) and VirtualBox version 5.1.10 downloaded and installed from oracle's site. Restarted client and checked for vboxdrv all is good, even tried older versions of virtualbox but still receive the message, "VirtualBox not installed.

Hi clark,

When i see your computers, i notice you haven't enough ram memory to run atlas tasks.You need at least 4 GO of ram and you have only 2 GO of ram.
You should choose another project to run with less ram memory requirement.

Informations given in the main page at "join atlas" item:


A reasonably powerful modern 64-bit computer with at least 4GB of memory is required to run ATLAS@Home. Enabling 64-bit virtualisation may require some changes in BIOS settings.
