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.

Ubuntu :: VirtualBox Kernel Module Breaks After Each Kernel Update?

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.

Slackware :: Can't Build VirtualBox Kernel Module In 13.1

Apr 26, 2011

I am using the 13.1 build scripts from I modified the scripts to build 3.2.12 rather than 3.2.10.

In 13.1 the main VirtualBox 3.2.12 OSE package built and installed without errors. The VirtualBox GUI starts without errors.

Running the script built a kernel source package without errors.

Yet the VirtualBox kernel module won't build. I receive the following error:

Slackware :: VirtualBox < 3.1.4 Module Build Fails On 2.6.33 Kernel

Mar 4, 2010

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.

2 options:

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

Fedora :: Kernel - VirtualBox - Missing Module

Jun 16, 2011

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 version doesn't have vboxdrv module!....hence again I have to roll back to older kernel. So before blindly this message!

CentOS 5 :: Installing VirtualBox - Compilation Of Kernel Module Failed

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:

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.

If I compile the kernel once fully and if I wan't to make a minor change how do I do that without having to go through the whole recomiliation?

Software :: Recompiling Kernel Required To Add Modules?

Jan 4, 2011

I only have basic experience recompiling a Linux kernel, and I have a question about adding dynamic modules.In case I want to add a brand new module, do I need to recompile the kernel to include a reference to that new module, or is simply compiling a kernel with generic support of dynamic modules all it takes to add whatever modules I need later on, without recompiling the kernel and rebooting the host?

Debian :: Recompiling Changed Code When Building Kernel Debs

Jan 15, 2016

How do I force recompilation of the kernel .deb packages. After a small change I make to the sources without having to clean the sources and recompile the whole kernel again?

Code: Select all$ fakeroot make -f debian/rules.gen setup_i386_none_686
$ fakeroot make -f debian/rules.gen binary-arch_i386_none_686 binary-indep

Calling the second command again does not recompile the modified code, just recreates the .deb packages.

If I use:

Code: Select all$ make -f debian/rules clean before the build command, then it will recompile everything which takes ages.

How can I force recompilation of the files/objects I changed (and dependencies)?

I use this guide: [URL] .... ('Building only a single kernel variant' section)

CentOS 5 Hardware :: Enable New Libata Library Without Recompiling Kernel?

Sep 9, 2009

I use CentOS 5.3 with kernel 2.6.18-128.1.6.el5 for Clonezilla. It would be simpler for me if any of IDE or SATA drives detects as /dev/sdX device. Because when I cloning computers with Clonezilla it is matter which type of drive connected to cloned computer. So I must firstly clone computers with IDE drives, after that with SATA drives. If all drives would detected as /dev/sda I would can clone all computers at once! Is there simple way to enable new libata library without recompiling kernel? Is there already compiled kernels with this feature?

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.

OpenSUSE :: VirtualBox Kernel Driver Not Installed?

Mar 23, 2010

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


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


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
