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?

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?

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.

Fedora :: Get The VBox Video Driver To Work In FC12?

Feb 28, 2010

Host: CentOS 5.4 x32
Guest: FC12 x32
Virtual machine: Virtual Box (VBox) 3.1.4

The 640 x 480 video display on my FC12 guest is driving me nuts! The VBox Guest Additions are installed. How do I get FC12 to recognize the VBox video driver?

Extra information:

Auto resize works great on my Windows guests. On FC12, I just get a lot of extra white space.

FC12's installer does not detect a video card. You have to use the stand display option (second one down) to get FC12 to go into a full graphical installer. If you use the regular install, hoping to do a graphical install, FC 12 only install the bare basics. No video support. You get what looks like a rescue cd. No Gnone, no X etc.

I do believe that FC12 has no idea that the VBox's fake video adapter even exists.

General :: Fedora 14 - Kernel Not Compatible With Latest Version Of VBox

Jan 21, 2011

I have install windows XP and Fedora-14-X86_64 on dual boot, I want to run other OS on fedora by using Virtual machine. I have download and installed VirtaulBox-4.0.0 successfully but I cannot able to start it. I got error about Vbox driver not installed [error code:1908]. I have also installed DKMS package, but also didn't work.

Finally I found the actual problem was kernel not compatible with latest version of vbox and I need to update my kernel-headers. I also meet that solution by using command: yum install binutils gcc make patch libgomp glibc-headers glibc-devel kernel-headers kernel-devel and its work fine, this command download and install the kernel compatible VirtualBox-3.2.* and now its works fine.

But problem is that when I booting my PC, it shows 3 options for entering OS rather then 2.
1. Fedora-14 ( [which is new one/updated after using that command]
2. Fedora-14 ( [which is new one/updated after using that command]
3. Other [windows XP]
How can i delete that old version- No.2?

But somehow I have to login as root and run the vbox as root. otherwise if I run the vbox as a normal user, I cannot mount the magicjack usb device, it appears as a grey disabled box.

General :: Rc.modules Not Loading Modules At Startup?

May 11, 2010

I've been trying to load my pcmcia network card driver "xirc2ps_cs" at startup with no success. I have added "modprobe xirc2ps_cs" to the rc.modules file but it doesn't load at startup. Curiously, though, if I execute rc.modules AFTER the machine has booted it will load the modules just fine. Just not during the boot up process. Thinking that hotstart might have been causing problems I've disabled hotstart (chmod -x) temporarilly to remove it from the picture, but there was no change.

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.

I have used this method to manage SELinux on various CentOS and Fedora installations before, I don't recognise this problem.I tried the GUI "SELinux Policy Generation Tool" but it closes itself a second after opening so I can't even explore this.

Fedora Installation :: New Kernel Will Not Boot (Modules)

Mar 26, 2011

The new kernel upgrade on Fedora 14 will not boot. lib/modules do not exist is the message. Grub was adjusted to match the old kernel, and the new kernel when booting says lib/modules do not exist. The old kernel has twice as many modules as the new kernel in lib/modules. How do I get the new modules to install so I can boot with the new kernel then? Should I reinstall the new kernel?

Fedora :: Loading Modules To Work With Card Reader Using F13?

Aug 7, 2010

I found a solution to my card reader problem in a another fedora post but when I type the code in terminal I get:
all config files need.conf /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist
How to write this code so I wont get this error and I can load these modules and also how to edit the modprobe.conf.

The code is below, using fedora 13.
You must load these two modules to work with card reader.
First : Remove the card from the Reader!
AS superuser type in console :
1. /sbin/modprobe tifm_core <enter>
2. /sbin/modprobe tifm_sd <enter>

If you want to automate these modules loading do the following :
edit the /etc/modprobe.conf file
add these :
alias mmc_core tifm_core
alias mmc_card tifm_sd
