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):

Code:
make KBUILD_VERBOSE=1 -C /lib/modules/2.6.37.1-1.2-desktop/build SUBDIRS=/tmp/vbox.0 SRCROOT=/tmp/vbox.0 modules

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:

[code]...

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/2.6.37.1-1.2-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?

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
Code:
KFLAGS += -DRT_ARCH_AMD64
TO
Code:
KFLAGS += -DRT_ARCH_X86_64

In the following files :-
Code:
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.

General :: Kernel Panic In 64bit Arch Linux After Kernel Recompile - 2.6.35-rc3

Jun 15, 2010

I have recompiled a few kernels, but all on 32bit systems so not sure if that has anything to do with it.

Running Arch Linux 64bit, most recent version.

Kernel Output:

Code:

My first thoughts was that it might be my grub bootloader configuration, so had a big play around with that but it didn't fix it. Also made sure support was built for filesystems. However almost all that Fstab mounts are ext3 anyway, and certainly the root and /boot are. Now thinking it may be a memory error so will run a check when I shutdown.

OpenSUSE Install :: Remote Installation With Special Kernel Modules?

Feb 27, 2011

I want to remotely install OpenSUSE on one of my servers. I followed the instructions given at SDB:Remote installation - openSUSE, but it didn't work. (My server reverted back to the already installed system.) I think this has to do with a special kernel module (megaraid_sas) that is necessary for the raid controller. Without this module, the kernel cannot find any disk. Of course, the module is not included in the initrd provided by OpenSUSE. I know how to add files to the initrd, but I have no idea where I have to put the required kernel module and which config file inside the initrd must be modified to make the kernel load the module.

CentOS 5 :: Broken Kernel / How To Recompile?

Dec 15, 2009

I tried to run some virtual machine using Virtual Machine Manager but the guest OS (windows server 2003) was not able to "see" the rest of my network. I believe VMM did some NAT-ing (192.168.122.x subnet) so i'm not able to "see" my network. I tried various network setting in VMM but couldnt get it to pull my network IP (192.168.1.x subnet).So i installed VirtualBox as a work around because i know VB work when i tried it on my windows machine. I ran into some issue getting VB to run, i think it was that i need to compile the kernel to "optimize" it for VB. I am fairly new to linux so that the impression that i get when i research for the fix to get VB working. In some of the forum post people suggest few things and it seem to me like it to compile the kernel. After a few hours of working i finally got it to compile but the computer crashed during compilation.

I am guess what happened is that i was trying to optimize the kernel for VB but the version of kernel i was using (2.6.18-164.6.1.el5xen) is already optimized for xen (VMM) so it crashed. I am looking to restore or recompile the 2.6.18-164.6.1.el5xen kernel. I am not sure if this is the right thing to do to fix it. With my limited knowledge of linux that all i can think of.

General :: Kernel Upgrade / Saying "No Modules"?

Feb 25, 2010

Recently I downloaded the latest 2.6.33 kernel from kernel.org. I had earlier 2.6.29 kernel version installed through Fedora 11 Leonardos.I followed simple steps through url.html and it went fine.I could see new Kernel during grub.conf splash display during dual-boot option.But there are few doubts like as shown below:

Code:
Compiling module in Linux:
$cd /usr/src/linux-2.6.33
$make menuconfig
$make
HOSTCC firmware/ihex2fw
code....

though the process went fine....Is it fine with the last line?Though I can easily boot into New Kernel and can see everything there. why it says "No modules.."

Also, Just for information - "Why we compile kernel?Say I have two kernels now- 2.6.33 and 2.6.29. Whats the difference?

Debian :: Security Update 'broke' Kernel / Recompile It?

May 25, 2011

I installed the latest security update for squeeze. It entailed an update of the kernel. Now when it boots, it give continuous kernel error messages about "can't enumerate usb .... " I have a custom kernel compiled from source (not sure about the patch level) from the same kernel 2.6.32. It seems to work OK. Should I worry about the security of this custom kernel or should I try to recompile it? I don't really know how to do any patching of the kernel source.

Ubuntu :: Minimal Kernel Recompile- Init Hangs At Plymouth

Dec 23, 2010

I've been playing around in attempt to see how small a usable kernel I can build. The theory is that it should mainly be useful for preparing a recovery disk or some such thing; disk drivers and a few network drivers are what goes in.

I built the kernel with the attached config. It boots, reaches the hdd (if I specify root as /dev/sda5 manually), then dies when it tries to start Plymouth (something about catching a SEGV signal). What needs to be enabled to run Plymouth? Alternatively, has anyone managed to remove plymouth from boot on Maverick?

(That would require a modified mountall version, I know.) I'm using the mainstream kernel 2.6.32.27 sources on Maverick (yes, I know Maverick uses 2.6.35; but this does boot).

Hardware: Wireless-RTL8192SE b/g/n, uses an out-of-tree driver (r8192se_pci, from Realtek; Ubuntu builds in an older version of this driver); r8169 works for ethernet; ATI Radeon Mobility 3200 graphics, AMD Neo X2 cpu; SATA hd in AHCI mode.

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 :: VirtualBox Kernel Driver Not Installed?

Mar 23, 2010

when I open virtualbox OSE and tried to run a vm i get this error

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. Re-setup 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. So i tried doing what it said and I got this error when i tried to run /etc/init.d/vboxdrv setup (as root)

Code:

Stopping VirtualBox kernel module done
Recompiling VirtualBox kernel module, NOT. It has been packaged.Recompiling VirtualBox

[code]....

Then i ran dmesg and there was a ton of stuff that seemed to be unreleated so i ran dmesg -c to clear it. then i ran the vboxdrv this again then checked dmesg again expecting there to be nothing but the vboxdrv stuff but it was still blank.I really dont know what to do at this point I tried uninstalling and reinstalling but that makes no difference
