OpenSUSE :: Virtualbox Problems (Error Kernel Headers For Kernel 2.6.34-12-desktop Cannot Be Found At)?
Jan 2, 2011
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:
Failed to open a session for the virtual machine Win7Main.
The virtual machine 'Win7Main' has terminated unexpectedly during startup with exit code 1.
I have installed OpenSUSE 11.3 64 bit and want to install VMWare workstation 7.1. I have run the install script for VMWare without any issues. When I start the VMWare Workstation I get a window saying this: Before you can run VMWare, several modules must be compiled and loaded into the running kernel. Kernel Headers 2.6.34-12-desktop Kernel headers for version 2.6.34-12-desktop were not found.
I get the following error message trying to install dazuko on xubuntu 10.04: "headers for target kernel version could not be found" But when I run sudo apt-get install linux-headers-$(uname -r), I get the message that I already installed the headers. My current kernel is 2.6.34-020634-generic
How can I install dazuko withouth having this problem??
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/22.214.171.124-1.2-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?
Trying to install virtualbox in F12 but fails when recompiling kernel module. Output of vbox-install log is:
Attempting to install using DKMS removing old DKMS module vboxdrv version 3.1.6 Deleting module version: 3.1.6 completely from the DKMS tree. Creating symlink /var/lib/dkms/vboxdrv/3.1.6/source -> /usr/src/vboxdrv-3.1.6
DKMS: add Completed.

A recent kernel update seems to have misplaced the Kernel Headers. VMWare needs these headers and cannot find them. Attempting to run VMWARE gets the message: Kernel headers for version 220.127.116.11-0.2-desktop were not found.
I installed the latest kernel liquorix (2.6.35) but when i want to install the Nvidia driver downloaded on the Nvidia website (256.53), i have an error message because Nvidia doesn't found the kernel source tree.
I install linux-image-2.6.35-6.dmz.2-liquorix-686_2.6.35-16_i386.deb, linux-headers-2.6.35-6.dmz.2-liquorix-686_2.6.35-16_i386.deb and build-essential. I don't understand why the installation doesn't works.
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.
I can see this error occurring in multiple past versions of suse. The answer seems to involve recompiling the open source version of VBox, but this is surely overkill. Isn't there a way to either a)get the right kernel version of VBox for 11.3 or b)set whatever permissions are required.
In all the answer so far I can't see a solution I can understand for these combinations, sues 11.3 and VBox 3.2.8. The error is consistent, and if the install doesn't work properly (it took my a few attempts even to install it without error messages) then surely its an issue either for Oracle or Suse? It runs ok but hwen trying to fire up a newly created XP VM this error message occurs trying to switch from W764bit to suse11.3 64bit
I've just installed clean copies of both VirtualBox v4.0.8 and Fedora 15. Now I have followed the instructions here : [url] to install the latest VBox guest additions.
Each time I try I get the following message:
The headers for the current running kernel were not found. If the following module compilation fails then this could be the reason. The missing package can be installed with yum install kernel-devel-18.104.22.168-32.fc15.i686.PAE.
However, if I run that command I am told there is no such package available. The guest addition installer continues seemingly OK, but after a restart they are not loaded.
I've just moved to Fedora from Ubuntu due to major issues with its new version.
As a follow-on to something Telemachos said in another post:

If you've been installing kernel-headers along with the kernels (say to build modules for graphics or wireless), you should remove those when you remove the corresponding kernel. The command to search for those is parallel:
I would have thought that removing a given kernel package would trigger the removal of the older kernel headers. Can someone confirm that is, or is not, the behavior? I ask this because it seemed to me that the older kernel header packages were indeed removed when I removed some older kernel packages.
For example, the linux kernels I have installed are:
Also, the linux-headers packages I have installed are:
So, when I get around to removing the linux-image-2.6.25-2-amd64 package like this:
I would expect apt-get to automatically also remove linux-headers-2.6.25-2-amd64 and linux-headers-2.6.25-2-common. Is that what will happen, or do I need to explicitly state all three packages on the apt-get remove command?
I have a problem to install the VMware Server (VMware-server-2.0.2-203138.x86_64.rpm) on "Fedora 13 Desktop Edition 64-bit".I traied all tips I found, but nothing was OK.Please look my linux configuration and the error messages:
The installation of VMware Server 2.0.2 for Linux completed successfully.Before running VMware Server for the first time, you need to configure it for your running kernel by invoking the following command: "/usr/bin/vmware-config.pl". code....
Is there a way to get the matching Linux kernel headers automatic on a regular kernel update via the Ubuntu packed manager? Every time I get a new kernel I must do an aptitude install linux-headers-`uname -r`
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 am trying to install the Nvidia Quadro NVS 110 169.04 drivers but am having issues during install. Prior to attempting my install I did install the kernel-devel rpm so it can compile. after running the RPM I get. Quote: No precompiled kernel interface was found to match your kernel; would you like the installer to attempt to download a kernel interface for your kernel from the NVIDIA ftp site [URL]?
which of course does not work. next it says Quote: "No precompiled kernel interface was found to match your kernel; this means that the installer will need to compile a new kernel interface.. i hit okay and move on to. Quote: Error: Unable to find the kernel sources tree for the currently running kernel. Please make sure you have installed the kernel source files for your kernel and that they are properly configured; on Red Hat linux systems, for example be sure you have the 'kernel-source' or 'kernel-devel' RPM installed. if you know the correct kernel source files are installed, you may specify the kernel source path with the "--kernel-source-path' command line option
I've been trying to install Vmware Workstation and keep getting an error about Kernel Headers missing! Although I am pretty sure I have the headers installed for my system. It's looking for the PAE version of my headers which I believe it doesn't exist!
I have a system running openSUSE 11.2 with Desktop and XEN kernel, as well as Windows 7 (not by choice though...). I have noticed a strange time issue, with Windows 7 and the desktop kernel the time is correct (like for example now: 1:32 PM) but in the XEN kernel it is ahead several hours (6:32 PM). If it was an issue between openSUSE and windows then I would think that it is a problem with the system clock but I don't know what would cause a time issue between kernels like that.
differences between Kernel Default and Kernel Desktop? I've found some past threads like this link and this other link, and some other google info, which suggest the only difference would be the io scheduler. Also, I see the default grub choice is "Desktop" and not "Default", so I take this as a suggestion to prefer one over the other.
However, my broadcom 4312 wireless only works on the "default" and not on the "desktop" kernel, so I guess there must be other differences. I just want to evaluate which one is the less long-term risk option to go.
Search the forums first. Well I did, can't find anything I understand. So please help an ignoramus in simple terms. The problem:- I'm trying to run vmware workstation and I get a desktop box pop up which says "Kernel .heade4s for version 22.214.171.124-1.2 desktop not found" How do I find them and install please.
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 am trying to setup Slacware 13.1 x86_64 to a encrypted partition. I used the README_CRYPT.TXT howto : [URL] At the step when I create an initrd.gz I get this error: Quote: ERROR: No /lib/modules/126.96.36.199-smp kernel modules tree found for kernel "188.8.131.52-smp"
I tried to look into the directory and there was only modules under 184.108.40.206. So I tried to change the command into: Quote: mkinitrd -c -k 220.127.116.11 -m ext3 -f ext3 -r cryptroot -C /dev/sda2
This command was successful, but I don't know if this is alright. I made the changes in lilo.conf, add initrd = initrd.gz. This is all on unencrypted /boot partition. The boot=/dev/sda1 I also set for the unencrypted boot partition. When I boot the system I get a kernel panic:
Recently I've been looking to try out a KDE desktop distro on my msi wind u100. Reading that Manriva and Opensuse are good distro that are 'KDE centered', I've been wanting to try them out. I dl'ed the iso files and used unetbootin and mandriva seed to install a 4GB usb drive.
On boot though, the linux kernel could not be found. I read through other complaints about this problem and it turns out that ubuntu's use of a old syslinux is the cuase.
Could someone write me a command line code that updates ubuntu 9.04 to the newest version if possible(safe to do so without killing m install)?
And can someone file a bug report asking for lucid lynx to have the newest version?
