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

Apr 26, 2011

I am using the 13.1 build scripts from slackbuilds.org. 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 virtualbox-kernel-mksrctarball.sh script built a kernel source package without errors.

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

Code:
]*** Building 'vboxdrv' module ***
make[1]: Entering directory `/dev/shm/virtualbox-kernel-3.2.12/vboxdrv'
make KBUILD_VERBOSE= -C /lib/modules/2.6.33.11-smp-2/build SUBDIRS=/dev/shm/virtualbox-kernel-3.2.12/vboxdrv SRCROOT=/dev/shm/virtualbox-kernel-3.2.12/vboxdrv modules

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

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.

Slackware :: Starting VirtualBox Kernel Module - Failed

Jan 4, 2010

I download "VirtualBox-3.1.2-56127-Linux_amd64.run" and installed it, and got a messages like this " virtualbox have been installed successfully in my system", but when I run virtualbox, I've been told "/etc/init.d/vboxdrv setup" something like that. And I run virtualbox in terminal, got this:

Warning: The vboxdrv kernel module is not loaded. Either there is no module available for the current kernel (2.6.29.6) or it failed to load. Please recompile the kernel module and install it by
sudo /etc/init.d/vboxdrv setup
You will not be able to start VMs until this problem is fixed.

I run "/etc/rc.d/rc.vboxdrv start" as a root, got messages like this :

Debian Hardware :: NVidia Kernel Module Won't Build?

I can't get the nVidia kernel module built. Each time DKMS runs to install it (I'm trying to install it with the nvidia-kernel-legacy-173xx-dkms package on ), the build fails with a different error.

Programming :: Build Module Against Headers That Are Not From Running Kernel?

Apr 13, 2011

I'm trying to debug a module I programmed but I don't want to do it on the running host but against UML (don't want to reboot every 5 minutes).

The UML kernel I downloaded is 2.6.38.2. I have already downloaded the ubuntu kernel headers for this version (they belong to natty though I'm running maverick.... when I installed the .deb file with dpkg I had no problem at all).

Now I'd like to build said module against these headers. How can I do it?

Here's the makefile for my module code...

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Unable To Build The NVIDIA Kernel Module?

Feb 26, 2011

before i get a lot of annoyed responses, I did check the forum and found a couple older previous threads on this topic, but they don't seem to really explain any real solutions to the problem im having.Here's the story- I was looking around for instructions and found this "howto guide" on installing nvidia display driver [URL]I went through the steps he listed:

downloaded the driver packages, install the dependencies from the shell, and then i pressed CTRL+ALT+F2 to get out of X and into text mode. I stopped my gdm with the command: sudo /etc/init.d/gdm stopand then i tried to install the driver using: sudo sh (on my NVIDIA driver- his version was a bit outdated compared to the one I downloaded)But here is where the problem starts, as I go through the installation process and click yes, i reach the "progress bar" then the screen says "unable to build the NVIDIA kernel module". and then it just exits. What is going on here? Am I missing some other package or file?

Fedora :: Kernel 2.6.38.8-32.fc15.x86_64 - 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...

[Code]...

The 2.6.38.8 version doesn't have vboxdrv module!....hence again I have to roll back to older kernel. So before blindly upgrading....read this message!

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

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

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 :

2.6.37.6-0.5-1

And my VirtualBox was installed from the Virtualization repos (4.0.8.11-1) 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.

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:

Creating group 'vboxusers'. VM users must be member of that group!
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.
