Archlinux virtualbox, trying vagrant up gives me this warning: No usable default provider could be found for your system.

I am using archlinux, I3 and my virtualbox is working when I try it on virtualization. Yet it doesnt seem to work with vagrant.

No usable default provider could be found for your system.

Vagrant relies on interactions with 3rd party systems, known as
"providers", to provide Vagrant with resources to run development
environments. Examples are VirtualBox, VMware, Hyper-V.

The easiest solution to this message is to install VirtualBox, which
is available for free on all major platforms.

If you believe you already have a provider available, make sure it
is properly installed and configured. You can see more details about
why a particular provider isn't working by forcing usage with
`vagrant up --provider=PROVIDER`, which should give you a more specific
error message for that particular provider.

I tried the
vagrant up --provider=virtualbox
I tried few boxes and always gained the same warning from vagrant up. Any clues?

  1. Same problem here, it turns out vagrant is not compatible with latest virtualbox 5.1.0. the issue has been fixed according to the vagrant changelog on github and will be provided with the next release. If you can’t wait either downgrade virtualbox or compile vagrant from source.
