Snaps – VirtualBox can’t operate in VMX root mode

Tried to start a VM under VirtualBox today, and got the above message…Turns out, that when I installed kvm/qemu packages for Android virtual environment, it switch on VT.

Instead of pulling your hair out by recompiling your kernel, you could do this as a workaround:

“Try disabling kvm module…
modprobe -r kvm_intel” with root privileges. This worked for me…”
