Debian :: Error - Building The VirtualBox Guest Additions Kernel Module

Jun 16, 2010

I am running Lenny and using VirtualBox OSE 1.6.6. In order to try squeeze I installed it in a VM. I tried to install Guest Additions also, but i get this error:

VirtualBox 1.6.6 Guest Additions installation
Building the VirtualBox Guest Additions kernel module...
Building the shared folder support kernel module...
Unable to build the kernel module.

I checked what /var/log/vboxadd-install.log had to say:

/usr/src/linux-headers-2.6.32-5-common/include/net/neighbour.h:115: error: variably modified a at file scope
/tmp/vbox.0/utils.c: In function 'sf_path_from_dentry:

[code].....

I tried with 3 versions of the kernel 2.6.32-5-686,2.6.32-5-484,2.6.32-3-686 but I cannot get it to work using any of them. Also I tried to install version 2.6.30-2-686 but I couldn't since synaptic said that it Depends: linux-kbuild-2.6.30 but it is not installable.

Fedora Hardware :: Run At 1920x1200 - Error: Building The VirtualBox Guest Additions Kernel Modules [FAILED]

Jan 31, 2010

I opted to install my Linux Fedora distribution, in a SUN VM (Virtualbox). [URL] I have 2 questions:

My current max res available to select is 1024x768. Can I run at 1920x1200? My display indicated that it is 'Unknown'. I don't know if that is in on the deal, or not...

Second question: When installing VBOXADDITIONS_3.1.2_56127, I am getting the error: Building the VirtualBox Guest Additions kernel modules [FAILED]

If I am displaying the log correctly, it indicates: Makefile:23: *** Error: unable to find the sources of your current Linux kernel. Specify KERN_DIR=<directory> and run Make again.. Stop Pictures are located here, in the EVGA Linux forum: [URL] I am new to both Linux, and Fedora.

My mission statement: To run Linux using the Fedora distribution, in a VM window under Windows 7 64bit Ultimate, with the ability for scripting using Bash, with the Perl programming language installed, and use Apache Tomcat to monitor both apps, and various VM installs, on numerous Servers via the internet.

OpenSUSE :: Virtualbox Guest Additions: Set A Shared Folder In 11.2 Guest

Mar 4, 2010

OpenSUSE installed in a Virtualbox Virtual Machine and I want to set a shared folder.

1 - Set up a Virtual Machine and install OpenSUSE 11.2

2 - Create a shared folder on host (HostFolder)

3 - Setup the shared folder in Virtualbox Via the Virtual Machine details or via Devices > Shared Folders...

4 - Install dependencies for running the Virtualbox installer You need to install the right development kernelpackage for your machinetype (use 'zypper search -i kernel' to see what's installed) sudo zypper make gcc kernel-source kernel-hosttype/default-devel

5 - Run the Virtual Machine and go to Devices > Guest Additions This mounts an iso image in your OpenSUSE guest.

6 - Open a root terminal and run

cd /usr/src/linux
make oldconfig && make prepare && make scripts && make dep
cp ../linux-obj/$HOSTTYPE/default/Module.symvers .
make prepare

* A commenter on previously mentioned thread says this step is unnecessary but it doesn't work without on my system. I suggest trying step 7 first and returning to step 6 if that fails. *

7 - Run ./VirtualboxLinux yourhosttype .run from the mounted iso image.

8 - Create shared folder in OpenSUSE (GuestFolder)

9 - Test with sudo mount -t vboxsf HostFolder /home/user/GuestFolder It works? Great! Let's set up the system so it automounts for your regular useraccount instead of root-only access.

10 - Add this line to /etc/fstab HostFolder /home/user/GuestFolder vboxsf defaults,uid=1000,gid=1000 0 0

11 - It works for me but if it still doesn't automount after a reboot; sudo mount -a

Fedora :: Installing Guest Additions Virtualbox 13 Guest?

Jun 3, 2010

I had a lot of trouble installing Guest Additions within the Fedora 13 Guest on a Linux host. I had to mount the vboxGuestadditions.iso from the Device --> CD/DVD Devices menu. Then I located the appropriate package for my system. In my case it was the AMD64 Linux version.I ran this as administrator in Terminal. I used the "bash" command followed by the package name. This was after CDing the the appropriate directory. The packaged installed, I then rebooted and it worked fine. (Something that would make this easier is to load a script into nautilus that would allow me to open a locatation as administartor at the open window. I'm sure there is something in Fedora to do this but I couldn't find it in a hurry so I used the command line way).

OpenSUSE :: Installing VirtualBox Guest Additions In 11.3 VM

Feb 28, 2011

I'm trying to install the Virtual Box Guest Addition for my openSUSE 11.3 VM, but I'm having some problems. The Virtual Box manual says I need to install the kernel-default-devel package, so I did that, but it also says :

Make sure that your running kernel (uname -a) and the kernel packages you have installed (rpm -qa kernel*) have the exact same version number. Proceed with the installation as described above.So I ran both commands and here is the output :

edgar@linux-t7uc:/> uname -a
Linux linux-t7uc 2.6.34-12-default #1 SMP 2010-06-29 02:39:08 +0200 i686 athlon i386 GNU/Linux
edgar@linux-t7uc:/> rpm -qa kernel*

[code]...

the devel packages are version 2.6.34.7-0.7.1 and the kernel is version 2.6.34-12. How do I install the correct version of the kernel-default-devel and kernel-devel package with zypper? I thought maybe the versions could be compatible somehow, so I tried to install the Guest Addition and here's the result :

edgar@linux-t7uc:/media/VBOXADDITIONS_4.0.4_70112> sudo sh ./VBoxLinuxAdditions.run
root's password:

Slackware :: 13 Guest Additions For Virtualbox On Xp Host?

Jan 26, 2010

pretty comfortable at the command line and in kde. found 2 'supplementary kernel drivers' for virtualbox at slackbuild (thank you heinz!). followed the how-to at slackbuild and built and installed both packages, but additions weren't working. (i thought they were standalone) noticed the 'supplemental' in their description, and so installed the guest additions for linux from vbox site. additions still not working. at this point i start restarting my slackware vm, and redoing everything in various sequences. finally, additions work! but i'm not sure why! critical pieces and sequence for getting guest additions working once i have slackware installed?

Ubuntu :: VirtualBox's Guest Additions - Utility Was Not Found

Jul 26, 2011

If you're installing Linux Additions in VirtualBox (VBoxLinuxAdditions.run) and get:"The make utility was not found. If the following module compilation fails then this could be the reason and you should try installing it. The gcc utility was not found. If the following module compilation fails then this could be the reason and you should try installing it."

then go to synaptic and install "make" (An utility for Directing compilation) and gcc (The GNU C compiler) or use "sudo apt-get install make gcc" and all should go well afterwards but if you'll still be missing something go to synaptic and see what would be installed if you choose virtualbox-guest-additions (guest additions iso image for VirtualBox) and match it with what you need.

General :: Set A Higher Resolution Than 800x600 In VirtualBox Without Using Guest Additions?

Nov 25, 2010

There is no shortage of questions about increasing the VirtualBox resolution to more than 800x600 with a Linux guest OS, but every time the proposed solution was "install Guest additions".I want the VM to be as simple and as portable as possible, so I would prefer not to install "Guest additions" which seem to fail after each kernel upgrade, which have to be uninstalled before a VBox upgrade etc.Is there a way to increase the resolution to something greater than 800x600 without Guest additions? Why can WinXP set 1024x768 without guest additions?

Ubuntu :: Permissions On Downloaded Files And Virtualbox Guest Additions?

May 12, 2010

file permissions and also about an error I'm getting in Virtualbox. I think the two issues are related. Recently, I replaced the hard drive in my computer and when I did, I decided to upgrade from 9.10 to 10.04 and I'm loving the new version. However, I have one minor problem. Whenever I download files via firefox (or chrome, etc.), they're not initially executable. I have to chmod them before I can run them. This isn't a problem for most things and is, in fact, more secure, I suppose. However, it causes problems for some programs that automatically download files and then need to run them.

Namely, I tried installing Virtualbox guest additions on my XP guest and Virtualbox couldn't mount the iso after it had downloaded it. To clarify, I can use wget, download a file, and execute it just fine. If I download the same file via firefox, I have to chmod the file before I can execute it. Virtualbox also can't mount the guest additions iso after it downloads it, and I assume that it's again running into a permissions problem.

Ubuntu :: Netbook Remix In VirtualBox Guest Additions Focus

Sep 30, 2010

I am supporting several users with UNR on their laptops, so on my AMD-64 machine I installed UNR 10.04 in VirtualBox 3.2.8r64453, updated upgraded, installed DKMS and gcc, then added the Linux-x86 Guest Additions from the supplied Guest Additions iso. So far so good.

But, there is a problem with the UNR desktop: whenever I try to run anything, for example FireFox, the app starts and then the focus immediately switches back to the desktop. Clicking on the app's icon in the top left panel, or using alt+tab to switch causes the selected app to draw on the screen for a moment, then the focus switches back to the desktop. If I'm fast I can get a character to appear on the command line in terminal, but that's it.This behavior only began after rebooting after installing the guest additions. It occurs whether in normal, fullscreen, or seamless mode. Uninstalling guest additions doesn't seem easy since I can't get to a console. Nothing in this install yet, so I'll nuke it and reinstall w/o the Guest Additions but it's a shame not to have the GA's available.

Ubuntu Installation :: No Full Screen For VirtualBox - Guest Additions Fail ?

Jul 11, 2010

I'm trying to test 10.04 Lucid 32-bit within 9.10 using VirtualBox. Guest additions aren't working fully--I can copy and paste text, but my mouse pointer still gets captured. No indications of any problems during installation. Also, I get the "Ubuntu is running in low-graphics mode" error message starting up, indicating Ubuntu can't detect the hardware properly. Screen size is stuck at 800x600.

I've tried reinstalling Guest Additions, increasing Video Ram to 128MB, and putting screen resolution and vbox device data into xorg.conf. Nothing changes. Actually, there is no xorg.conf on the system, only an xorg.conf.failsafe. I modified that, no effect--though the file gets overwritten on boot up to be what it was originally. I also tried adding my own xorg.conf. That doesn't get overwritten, but also has no effect.

Slackware :: Install 64-bit Virtualbox Guest Additions Or Change Resolution In XFCE4?

Jul 1, 2011

When I try to change the resolution, it only shows 800X600 and 640X480 or something similar, nothing regarding a custom resolution. When I use the "Install Guest Additions" it won't mount because of some error, and so I can't open it, and even if I could mount and open it *I've tried it in other distros that don't automatically install it for you* I have no idea what to use. I've tried all of the .sh, even the autorun.sh and giving it executable permissions, and it STILL doesn't work. Perhaps I'm missing something, or there's a documentation out there that I can't find, but I can never get them to work. How can I fix this problem? I know in sbopkg, there's 32-bit Virtualbox Guest Additions but that doesn't work. The reason why I installed the 64-bit one is because I don't have 6 CDs to spare and I'm almost out of bandwidth and it has to last me a week. *I think around 200GBs out of 250GBs taken up so far, or more*

Debian Programming :: Building Kernel Module

Dec 8, 2013

I'm trying to build the kernel module for dvbhdhomerun. The problem is the linux kernel headers provided by Debian do not have the dvb header files. Trying to set up my own kernel source tree to use is not working out so well.

I'm following the instructions in the Debian section here: [URL] ....

My first try compiled, but the modules ender up under /lib/modules/3.2.51/extra instead of /lib/modules/3.2.0-4-amd64/extra. Why?

I tried to start over, but noticed this while running apt-get source linux-image-3.2.0-4-amd64:

Code: Select allReading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree       
Reading state information... Done
Picking 'linux' as source package instead of 'linux-image-3.2.0-4-amd64'
NOTICE: 'linux' packaging is maintained in the 'Svn' version control system at:
svn://svn.debian.org/svn/kernel/dists/trunk/linux/

[Code] ....

The failure to verify the signature has me concerned, but beyond that, what do I do about the different version number when compiling and installing the kernel modules?

Debian Configuration :: Building A Loadable Kernel Module?

Jul 30, 2010

I upgraded my kernel in my Debian Lenny to version 2.6.32-bpo.4-amd64 to fix a problem with a software and ALSA-related issues. The thing is that now, when I boot, eth1 is not enabled and I have to "load" (I guess) the driver each time. To do this, I go to the folder where all the files for the drivers are and I run:

modprobe lib80211
and then
insmod wl.ko

That I got from the readme file. That gets the wireless working perfectly again, but when I reboot the wireless is dead again and I have to run the commands above again. I imagine that what I should do is to build the driver again, for my new kernel. However, according to the readme file, before I need to install linux-headers-generic and build-essential. With build-essential, it says it's already the newest version, and with the linux-headers, I don't know which one should I install for my kernel! I thought it would be the linux-headers-2.6.32-bpo.4-xen-amd64, but when I tried that, this is what happened:

debian:/home/hernan/Programas/hybrid_wl# apt-get install linux-headers-2.6.32-bpo.4-xen-amd64
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree

[code]....

So the warning says something about the MODULE_LICENSE being missing... how to build the driver again to make it load each time I boot?

General :: Install Guest Additions Over Again Every Time Kernel Updates

Aug 19, 2010

I have Ubuntu running as a Virtualbox, and every time it upgrades the kernel, the Guest Additions stop working.The install process in Linux requires using a virtual CD, running scripts from the command line, etc.Is there any way to keep the guest additions constantly working even when the kernel is upgraded?

Fedora Installation :: FED15 And VBox4.0.8 Guest Additions - Headers For Current Running Kernel Were Not Found

Jun 23, 2011

I've just installed clean copies of both VirtualBox v4.0.8 and Fedora 15. Now I have followed the instructions here : [url] to install the latest VBox guest additions.

Each time I try I get the following message:

The headers for the current running kernel were not found. If the following module compilation fails then this could be the reason. The missing package can be installed with
yum install kernel-devel-2.6.38.8-32.fc15.i686.PAE.

However, if I run that command I am told there is no such package available. The guest addition installer continues seemingly OK, but after a restart they are not loaded.

I've just moved to Fedora from Ubuntu due to major issues with its new version.
