I have downloaded latest version of sun vm virtual box foe Fedora 13 x64. After installing and creating a VM when I want to start vm I got this error. And when I enter this command on terminal :
I get this error:
[root@localhost arash]# /etc/init.d/vboxdrv setup
Stopping VirtualBox kernel module [ OK ]
Recompiling VirtualBox kernel module [FAILED]
(Look at /var/log/vbox-install.log to find out what went wrong)
[root@localhost arash]# cat /var/log/vbox-install.log
Makefile:159: *** Error: unable to find the sources of your current Linux kernel. Specify KERN_DIR=<directory> and run Make again. Stop.
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/184.108.40.206-1.2-default/updates/vboxnetflt.ko): Invalid module format. what should I do in order to get my VB to be able to connect to the internet?
Today is two out of three boot messages fixed. Working on the third one now, and that relates to virtual machines. The whole Virtual machine thing is new to me. Never used it, but I'd like to start. Therefore, I am no longer willing to just ignore this. The error message during boot is this:
Quote: Starting VirtualBox kernel module [60G[[0;31mFAILED[0;39m] (modprobe vboxdrv failed. Please use 'dmesg' to find out why)
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:
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.
I am new to fedora core and needs desperate help.Now what i can notice is the kernel files doesnot match. will this makes a difference..what do you think ? How can i make the VirtualBox kernel module status [OK] ?
I generally check what updates are being installed. This time sadly I didn't and again this kernel had one missing module. VirtualBox-OSE stopped working. It had been working fine with other upgrades. No it's not a problem with dkms or other stuff. This kernel doesn't have vboxdrv module like other kernels...i verified it...
The 220.127.116.11 version doesn't have vboxdrv module!....hence again I have to roll back to older kernel. So before blindly upgrading....read this message!
I'm running Virtualbox from the Sun website (need the USB support) and it breaks after each kernel update.The problem is that I installed a lot of Ubuntu systems for transitioning windows users with Windows in virtualbox to ease the migration but I have to rerun vboxdrv setup after each kernel patch.
I download "VirtualBox-3.1.2-56127-Linux_amd64.run" and installed it, and got a messages like this " virtualbox have been installed successfully in my system", but when I run virtualbox, I've been told "/etc/init.d/vboxdrv setup" something like that. And I run virtualbox in terminal, got this:
Warning: The vboxdrv kernel module is not loaded. Either there is no module available for the current kernel (18.104.22.168) or it failed to load. Please recompile the kernel module and install it by sudo /etc/init.d/vboxdrv setup You will not be able to start VMs until this problem is fixed.
I run "/etc/rc.d/rc.vboxdrv start" as a root, got messages like this : Starting VirtualBox kernel module ...failed! (modprobe vboxdrv failed.)
I had an issue with the module build for vbox 3.1.2 breaking on the latest kernel ( /etc/rc.d/rc.vboxdrv setup ). Apparently the issue is that a kernel header (autoconf.h ) has changed its location in the module tree and hence the issue.
1. upgrade to 3.1.4
2. create a symlink as follows
cd /usr/src/linux/include/linux ln -s ../generated/autoconf.h autoconf.h
I have been having some problems with virtualbox starting. So here is the issue: When I start a VM I get the following: Code: Kernel driver not installed (rc=-1908). The VirtualBox Linux kernel driver (vboxdrv) is either not loaded or there is a permission problem with /dev/vboxdrv. reinstall the kernel module by executing
I am seeing quite a few entries about the usb. I am not sure if that is common or if its unrelated. I am running x86 11.3, and virtualbox 4.0.4 I have tried to uninstall, and even go back to 3.2
I just up-graded to the latest version of the stable 11.4 64bit kernel on my laptop and it appears that the repositories have not compiled the VirtualBox driver module for the current kernel ... When I make /vboxdrv setup the message is:
Recompiling VirtualBox vboxadd kernel module, NOT. It has been packaged
I think this means that the installed module will not recompile has it was packaged. My kernel version is the lattest :
And my VirtualBox was installed from the Virtualization repos (22.214.171.124-1) even made the Vendor change and all. The version Before the lattest (4.0.4-1.6) did not work either. With the same problem. It is very easy to install VirtualBox from the Sun site and every time there is a Kernel up-date one can always make /etc/vboxdrv setup.
I'm trying to get Virtualbox up an running. So I have added virtualbox in my repo and added the key, looks fine so far. but afeter downloading I get this:
VirtualBox-3.0.8_53138_rhel5-1.x86_64 Creating group 'vboxusers'. VM users must be member of that group! No precompiled module for this kernel found -- trying to build one. Messages emitted during module compilation will be logged to /var/log/vbox-install.log.
Compilation of the kernel module FAILED! VirtualBox will not start until this problem is fixed. Please consult /var/log/vbox-install.log to find out why the kernel module does not compile. Most probably the kernel sources are not found. Install them and execute /etc/init.d/vboxdrv setup as root.
my error when trying to run a VB (Virtualbox). Error as copied from error box. install the virtualbox-ose-modules package for your kernel and execute 'modprobe vboxdrv' as root. VBox status code: -1908 (VERR_VM_DRIVER_NOT_INSTALLED).
I get this when trying to launch a VB after making one with wizzard.
I have installed Virtualbox PUEL in 64-bit 11.3. This is a fresh install. My computer has an onboard nvidia 8300GS graphics card. I do not think this is related to the issue. I added the virtualbox repository and installed the program via yast. when I type "VirtualBox" in the terminal I get the following output:
i installed SLES 11 sp1 as guest on openSUSE 11.3 host, then change the adapter network from 'NAT' to 'Bridged Adapter', but when i hit start i got this error message: Failed to open a session for the virtual machine sles. Failed to open/create the internal network 'HostInterfaceNetworking-wlan0' (VERR_SUPDRV_COMPONENT_NOT_FOUND). Failed to attach the network LUN (VERR_SUPDRV_COMPONENT_NOT_FOUND). One of the kernel modules was not successfully loaded. Make sure that no kernel modules from an older version of VirtualBox exist. Then try to recompile and reload the kernel modules by executing '/etc/init.d/vboxdrv setup' as root (VERR_SUPDRV_COMPONENT_NOT_FOUND). but when run: sudo /etc/init.d/vboxdrv setup
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.
I'm just installed OpenSuse 11.3 (64) on a 30gb SSD, hoping to get virtualbox 4.0 running to virtualize an instance of Windows 7.I went through some pain with my Nvidia video card and actually getting vb to install, but through lots of searching and tinkering got here.I created a vm in the vb control panel, but when I go to start it I get:
Code: Failed to open a session for the virtual machine Win7Main. The virtual machine 'Win7Main' has terminated unexpectedly during startup with exit code 1.
Boot of a new minimal system hangs on "Stopping save kernel messages" or "stopping system v runlevel compatibility". I have ubuntu minimal iso x86_64 from usb stick created with unetbootin (don't have a cd drive on the machine in question), and after that I didsudo aptitude install gnome-terminal network-manager-gnome gdm geditsudo rebootnever got a system back. Annoyingly I can't boot into the recovery mode either, and it seems the keyboard is only semi-responsive (i.e. many dead keys when at the grub menu).qualms about reinstalling, but I've done this a few times and ended up at the same place every time.
I update my last kernl to 2.6.38-rc7 but when I launch VirtualBox, on stdout.The vboxdrv kernel module is not loaded. Either there is no module available for the current kernel (2.6.38-rc7) or it failed to load. Please recompile the kernel module and install it by sudo /etc/init.d/vboxdrv setup.

I've been unable to boot into x using the real-time kernel from CCRMA at home. I get the error "Failed to load module "nvidia" (module-specific error,0) no drivers available. I'm using the driver from Nvidia. I know that this is not an official Fedora kernel and I should be bothering CCRMA about this, but in the mean time could I edit the entry in grub.conf so that it will use the Nouveau driver for that kernel only? That way I could "dual-boot", and just use the rt kernel when I want to use audio software and don't need 3d graphics.

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.
for the last few releases, starting with 9.04 i've been having serious crashing problems with the nvidia driver. whether i installed it manually using the latest drivers directly from nvidia, or installing them through the restricted driver option. after a few hours CRASH. it's been awful. and i tried everything from this side to the moon to fix this issue, all to no avail. no idea why i've even stayed with ubuntu after all these issues. came from the debian world back in 5.04, and almost moved back a few times. but i did a clean install of 10.04, and thought i'd give the nvidia driver one last chance... if it didn't work i'd be moving back home to debian (with the suspicion the issue would stay).
so after i tried the restricted driver and CRASH. nothing to fix it. then i thought ok i'll try to use the latest driver from nvidia. but ran into this error when installing it:
Quote: ERROR: Unable to load the kernel module nvidia.ko. This happens most frequently when this kernel module was built against the wrong or improperly configured kernel sources, with a version of gcc that differs from the one used to build the target kernel, or if a driver such as rivafb/nvidiafb is present and prevents the NVIDIA kernel module from obtaining ownership of the NVIDIA graphics device(s), or NVIDIA GPU installed in this system is not supported by this NVIDIA Linux graphics driver release. so after googling around i found a fix to this error i was getting during the install:
Quote: sudo nano /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf
blacklist vga16fb blacklist nouveau blacklist rivafb blacklist nvidiafb blacklist rivatv
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
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. I've dkms installed and did a reboot as well.
