OpenSUSE Install :: 11.2 (64bit) - Kernel Module Will Not Start In Vbox

Jan 23, 2010

I Just loaded 11.2 64 bit, initially the kernel was "default", however, after I installed my Nvidia drivers it changed to desktop, I'm not sure I understand? In GRUB my screen lists it as desktop. Is "default" somewhere? Was it replaced? Things seem to be working alright in most cases although I'm having inordinate problems with "virtual Box" and Vmware server. In Vbox the kernel module won't start.

OpenSUSE :: Can't Start VirtualBox - Reinstall Kernel Module By Executing

Mar 10, 2011

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

OpenSUSE Install :: Apparmor Module Does Not Load On Kernel-rt?

Aug 6, 2010

I have just reinstalled OS 11.2 but this time the 64bit system variant. I installed the real-time kernel and saw that the apparmor module reported an error and wasn't loaded. I have never looked into apparmor and only knows it has something to do with security, and thus I wonder if it is important to do something with this issue? I plan to use the kernel-rt and have more or less always used a variant of this kernel flavour, often self built. Though I can not recall having seen that error before and I have not used a 64bit system before

OpenSUSE :: VBox - Kernel Driver Not Installed

Oct 21, 2010

I have downloaded vbox from its site and installed it. I created a vm but when I try to start it, I get error:
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. 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.

And when I try 'sudo /etc/init.d/vboxdrv setup', I get:
Stopping VirtualBox kernel modules done
Uninstalling old VirtualBox DKMS kernel modules done
Trying to register the VirtualBox kernel modules using DKMS failed
(Failed, trying without DKMS)
Recompiling VirtualBox kernel modules failed
(Look at /var/log/vbox-install.log to find out what went wrong)

And this is /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.

OpenSUSE Install :: Kernel Upgrade On 11.1 - Cannot Find Module After Reboot

Nov 10, 2010

I've upgraded kernel to on openSUSE 11.1. Before I tried to upgrade to where I encountered the same issue. After reboot it can not find the modules for which puzzled me to no end. Now I have found that the /boot which is on separate partition of ext2 type is not mounted. The mount command does not recognize ext2 and xfs anymore.

Clearly the initrd does not have the right modules. Since this is standard zypper up process I would expect this to work without issues since it has worked until the kernel without issues. Has something changed with the last 2 kernel versions that requires some extra actions from me and if so what do I have to do.

OpenSUSE :: Kernel Module Development Barked

Feb 27, 2011

It is bad enough that the kernel gods have basically required that the whole kernel source tree be installed and configured to compile even a simple module but they have made it so a module compiled on one kernel will not work on any other.

To make the situation worse much of the configuration needed to successfully compile a module has been left out of open suse11.3. If you want to replicate the problems may I suggest you attempt to compile the usb-skeleton.c driver example code that is included with each kernel. If it is the intent of the linux community to limit driver development to the professionals then congratulations.

General :: Install New Module On Newly 2.6.35-rc5 Kernel?

Jul 16, 2010

Recently I was trying to look into vmware pvscsi modules for newly announced linux kernel 2.6.35-rc2. I compiled the kernel with option: make oldconfig where it asked me for various interactive options and all I did is Kept pressing the Enter ENTER key(Donno if that is the correct way to slect default ).The Kernel Compilation anyway went fine and I can see new kernel at grub screen, booted and it went fine.Now when I explored I found that nor the vmware_balloon and vmw_pvscsi modules are present which means I need to install these modules.I came to know that recently a new version of the vmware memory drivers being included through this page:


where you can see an entry like:


MODULE_AUTHOR("VMware, Inc.");
MODULE_DESCRIPTION("VMware Memory Control (Balloon) Driver");

Doesn't it mean that the new kernel has new driver version inboxed?Also, I tried to install modules through modprobe and insmod(seems that this doesnt work) but couldnt do that.

OpenSUSE :: 11.3 - Audacious Will Not Start With 64bit OS

Feb 21, 2011

OpenSUSE 11.3 KDE 4.4.4 64bit. Installed Audacious thru Yast2 using the Packman repository [ver]. When I look in the start menu it shows up under Multimedia > Audio Player > Adacious. When I try to start Audacious, by either:
1] clicking on the icon in the start menu
2] starting it from terminal
3] typing it from run command
I can see the bouncing 'a' for Audacious. It bounces for a few seconds and then disappears and then nothing more happens. I am using Audacious on my 32 bit system [running openSUSE 11.3 KDE 4.4.4 ] and it works just fine.

OpenSUSE Install :: Failed To Load Module "fglrx" (module Does Not Exist, 0)

May 8, 2011

I've installed openSuse 11.4 server-mode (text only) on my desktop, and I'm trying to configure IceWM so i'll eventually have it set up so it always boots into text only mode, but I could be able to quickly start icewm via the command line.using Yast, I installed the Xorg server, and icewm.when I type X, the screen goes black and it just doesn't seem to do anythingI found if I hit ctrl+alt+f1 it kinda puts me back into text only mode, but I can't put in commands anymore. The last thing it says on the screen is:

Failed to load module "fglrx" (module does not exist, 0)

I've goggled that error message and the discussions that popped up around it made no sense to me at all. I've never configured X from scratch before, can someone point me towards a tutorial or something?

OpenSUSE :: Recompiling VirtualBox Vboxadd Kernel Module, NOT. It Has Been Packaged

Jun 29, 2011

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 ( 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.

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?
