[SOLVED] Installing Virtualbox DKMS on 4.15.0.rc2 Kernel fails

Hey Community,

in order to use Vagrant, I tried to install Virtualbox under 4.15.0.rc2 Kernel. I typically need this kernel because of the NPT Patch. But when I try to install the DKMS modules, it errors with a bad return status. This is the complete make.log:

DKMS make.log for vboxhost-5.2.2_OSE for kernel 4.15.0-rc2-mainline (x86_64)
So 3. Dez 18:27:10 CET 2017

Re: [SOLVED] Installing Virtualbox DKMS on 4.15.0.rc2 Kernel fails

Are yous sure you want 4.15.0.rc2 that was released only a few hours ago if you do see https://patchwork.kernel.org/patch/9985967/
The NPT patch is in 4.14.3 by the way.

Ok, didn't noticed that. That solves my problem! big_smile

Thanks smile

EDIT Even if this does not solve the problem for the specific kernel, it solves my problem smile so I makred this as solved.

In case someone needs a patch for 4.15 this is only compile tested but as I had already generated it thought I may as well post it

Re: [SOLVED] Installing Virtualbox DKMS on 4.15.0.rc2 Kernel fails

Hello,

Came here by Just googling.

Are you sure it is for 4.15 kernels? From the patch I can read a 4.8.0 kernel version

Regards,
Josep

Re: [SOLVED] Installing Virtualbox DKMS on 4.15.0.rc2 Kernel fails

@jedjep yes I used greater than or equal to 4.8.0 to avoid doing the following:

#if LINUX_VERSION_CODE >= KERNEL_VERSION(4, 8, 0)
            init_timer_pinned(&pTimer->aSubTimers[iCpu].u.Std.LnxTimer);
#elif LINUX_VERSION_CODE >= KERNEL_VERSION(4, 15, 0)
            timer_setup(&pTimer->aSubTimers[iCpu].u.Std.LnxTimer,
                rtTimerLinuxStdCallback, TIMER_PINNED);
 #else
             init_timer(&pTimer->aSubTimers[iCpu].u.Std.LnxTimer);
 #endif

I found the following simpler and timer_setup was available in 4.8.0 to keep from a code mismatch the earlier test uses 4.8.0 as well

#if LINUX_VERSION_CODE >= KERNEL_VERSION(4, 8, 0)
            timer_setup(&pTimer->aSubTimers[iCpu].u.Std.LnxTimer,
                rtTimerLinuxStdCallback, TIMER_PINNED);
 #else
             init_timer(&pTimer->aSubTimers[iCpu].u.Std.LnxTimer);
 #endif

However no patch should be needed with the current arch packages.
