Well, that did it. Thank you gentlemen, it seems the files in /opt/virtualbox were the culprits.
btw. is the getVB script meant to receive input? In my example I think I left off the line that said it was exiting.
There is line asking if you want to continue [Y,N] but no input is accepted, & the process is terminated. Possibly there is a delay that waits for user input but it timed out.
Anyway, Thanks for your attention!
