Bug Description

The documentation is pretty limited but suggests testdrive will work with either KVM or Virtualbox. I have Virtualbox installed and working well.

I'm on Natty 11.04 with current updates. I installed testdrive (3.14-0ubuntu1~ppa4) as follows:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:testdrive/ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install testdrive
sudo apt-get install testdrive-cli

$ testdrive

~/.cache/testdrive or ~/.testdriverc/
