OpenSUSE Hardware :: Unable To Start VirtualBox Kernel Modules - Error Stopping VirtualBox Kernel Modules

Mar 23, 2011

I was trying to install VirtualBox through the YaST > Software Management but it is not working, someone in the forum told me that I have to download the OSE version and do it manual way. Finally I am able to start up VB but not able to use the network connection. Thus I am trying to do this:

/etc/init.d/vboxdrv setup. I get this error:


When I type dmesg, it shows me a bunch of info which I don't know what should look for. When I type modprobe vboxnetflt, I get the error: FATAL: Error inserting vboxnetflt (/lib/modules/ Invalid module format. what should I do in order to get my VB to be able to connect to the internet?

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 :: Can't Recompile Virtualbox Kernel Modules After Upgrade To 11.4?

Mar 20, 2011

This has got me stumped. I expected to do /etc/init.d/vboxdrv setup after the upgrade from 11.3 to 11.4 but the command fails. The log is (it seems to repeat so I only quote the final bits to make it fit into the wordcount limit):

make KBUILD_VERBOSE=1 -C /lib/modules/ SUBDIRS=/tmp/vbox.0 SRCROOT=/tmp/vbox.0 modules

Slackware :: VirtualBox Failing To Build Kernel Modules

Jan 10, 2010

If others are have the problem of VirtualBox failing to build the kernel modules with kernel 2.6.32 try this :-

1. Install VirtualBox and watch as the kernel modules fail to compile.

2. Change the line

In the following files :-
Line 231 /opt/VirtualBox/src/vboxdrv/Makefile
Line 170 /opt/VirtualBox/src/vboxnetadp/Makefile
Line 174 /opt/VirtualBox/src/vboxnetflt/Makefile

3. Run /etc/rc.d/rc.vboxdrv setup

You will now have a working VirtualBox setup. NB This is written purely from the standpoint of using the Closed source version of VB not the OSE version.

OpenSUSE :: Virtualbox Can't Start - Vboxdrv Not Loaded

Mar 24, 2010

Recently I had updated the kernel but afterwards I can't run virtualbox because the kernel modules aren't loaded.

Virtual box: 3.1.4 r57640 OpenSuse110-x86_64 Open Suse 11.0 running kernel-default-

When I try to start vboxdrv manually I can find the message: kernel: warning: `VirtualBox' uses deprecated v2 capabilities in a way that may be insecure.

After I installed the older kernel-default- version I can start virtualbox.

But, much to my suprise, I also get this message with this kernel level. But still, the kerneldrivers are loaded and I can run virtualbox.

OpenSUSE :: Virtualbox: Vboxdrv Doesn't Load On .3 (raw_notifier_chain_register)

Sep 22, 2010

I have problems to get Virtualbox 3.2.8 under openSuse 11.3 (, x86-64) running. I tried both the VirtualBox-3.2-3.2.8_64453_openSUSE113-1.x86_64 package from Virtualbox and self-compiled drivers as well as the newest RPM packages from openSuse(backports). I mostly get the following error during the vboxdrv load:

[ 269.095562] vboxdrv: Trying to deactivate the NMI watchdog permanently...
[ 269.095562] vboxdrv: Successfully done.
[ 269.095562] vboxdrv: Found 6 processor cores.


However I already tried different combinations of previous kernels and virtualbox versions and the error persists. This is somewhat strange. Sometimes I was able to get proper drivers when reinstalling the whole stuff under failsafe mode a couple of times. But still not cleary reproducable.

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

Ubuntu Installation :: Boot Error "modprobe: FATAL Could Not Load /lib/modules 2.6.35-22 Generic Modules No Such File Or Directory"

Apr 14, 2011

Tonight I installed ubuntu 10.10 (32 bit) on an external usb harddrive with a dvd I burned and I used my older desktop. I disconnected all internal and external drives first so everything had to be put on the usb drive I selected (only option available). I used the option to load extra software, use the entire hard drive, and let the software do it's thing. I basically had no options where to put things and it didn't have much choice.

When I boot the usb drive on my laptop (win 7 64 bit) by telling the bios to boot to it first... I get an error: modprobe: FATAL Could not load /lib/modules 2.6.35-22 generic modules No such file or directory. This message appears twice and then it does boot into ubuntu and seems to work fine. I'm new to this OS so that is an uneducated guess but the things I have done seem to be working. So exactly what is this error referring too? Is there a way to fix the problem or do I just ignore it.

OpenSUSE :: VirtualBox Keeps Failing Even Though Ran "/init.d/vboxdrv Setup"?

Sep 4, 2010

I keep getting the error below even though I:

1. Added myself to vboxusers
2. Installed dkms
3. Ran the "sudo /etc/init.d/vboxdrv setup" command.

When I run "/etc/init.d/vboxdrv setup" it gives me the error: modprobe vboxdrv failed. use 'dmesg' to find out why

The VirtualBox Linux kernel driver (vboxdrv) is either not loaded or there is a permission problem with /dev/vboxdrv. Please reinstall the kernel module by executing '/etc/init.d/vboxdrv setup'

as root. Users of Ubuntu, Fedora or Mandriva should install the DKMS package first. This package keeps track of Linux kernel changes and recompiles the vboxdrv kernel module if necessary. One other thing, I looked in the file system and there is no "/dev/vboxdrv". Is this correct?

CentOS 5 :: VirtualBox Error - Kernel Source Mismatch

uname -r prints 2.6.18-164.el5

When trying to run virtualbox I get an error:
Kernel Driver not installed: (rc=-1908)
Please reinstall the kernel module by running "/etc/init.d/vboxdrv setup" as root...

/etc/init.d/vboxdrv setup

Recompiling VirtualBox kernel modules [FAILED]
(Look at /var/log/vbox-install.log to find out what went wrong)

I'm assuming the setup program is using the output from uname -r to determine the kernel, the problem is the kernel sources I've got from yum do not jibe with the uname value.

OpenSUSE :: Suse 11.3 VirtualBox 3.2.8 Kernel Driver Not Installed Error - 908

Oct 9, 2010

I can see this error occurring in multiple past versions of suse. The answer seems to involve recompiling the open source version of VBox, but this is surely overkill. Isn't there a way to either a)get the right kernel version of VBox for 11.3 or b)set whatever permissions are required.

In all the answer so far I can't see a solution I can understand for these combinations, sues 11.3 and VBox 3.2.8. The error is consistent, and if the install doesn't work properly (it took my a few attempts even to install it without error messages) then surely its an issue either for Oracle or Suse? It runs ok but hwen trying to fire up a newly created XP VM this error message occurs trying to switch from W764bit to suse11.3 64bit

Fedora :: VirtualBox Coexists With Both Kvm And Vbox Modules?

Aug 30, 2010

I just installed a Puppy Linux 5.1 to a VirtualBox VM and selected hardware virtualization. It installed ok and then later I noticed I had not unloaded the kvm and kvm_intel modules. I was then surprised to notice the vbox modules were also loaded. It used to be you had to kick out the kvm modules before you could even boot a VM in VirtualBox using SVM or VT-X. If you didn't you'd get some error message in Vbox have to quit and restart it after removed the kvm modules.

Is this a neat new functionality of VirtualBox or something that was improved in Fedora?

Debian :: VirtualBox And Kernel Bigger Than 30 - Boot Process Stops

May 1, 2010

When I boot into kernels bigger than 2.6.30 the boot-process stops. I use the PUEL-version of VirtualBox:

$ apt-cache policy virtualbox-3.1
Installed: 3.1.4-57640_Debian_lenny

I am searching for iso's for Vbox which come with the guest-additions. They gotta be Debian-based (somehow). My goal is to have got a correct resolution. I tried to create one with live-helper, but that did fail. The purpose of the iso is troubleshooting (rsync, repairing grub, stuff like that).
