Default Trying to expunge virtualbox

Just recently switched to a backup machine and I notice the following.
Some time ago, I had tried Virtualbox, and uninstalled it. I still get
the following as the final 2 lines of the bootup process...

* Starting VirtualBox kernel module ...
* modprobe vboxdrv failed. Please use 'dmesg' to find out why

- I've tried "dmesg | grep -i box", and it shows nothing.
- emerge -pv --depclean | grep -i box
only hits on "busybox", "dosbox", and "sandbox"
- There is no mention of vboxdrv in /etc/modules.autoload.d/kernel-2.6
or in /var/lib/portage/world or in /etc/conf.d/local.start

Any more ideas?

Have you looked in /etc/mod*.conf and /etc/mod*.d/* ??

Anything in /etc/init.d or /opt/VirtualBox?

Yes and yes...

[d530][root][~] rc-update del vboxdrv
* 'vboxdrv' removed from the following runlevels: default

and freed up some space with...

d530][root][~] rm -rf /opt/VirtualBox

Thank you very much for your help.

This will not, of course, remove the /etc/init.d script.

Stroller.
