virtualbox-ose in testing and building host kernel modules

there is no way to build the kernel modules with this package.

vbox_build_modules does not exist
/etc/rc.d/vboxdrv does not exist

ive got a custom kernel and i cannot build the modules .. is there something missing?

Re: virtualbox-ose in testing and building host kernel modules

yeah, enable community-testing repo in pacman.conf


Give what you have. To someone, it may be better than you dare to think.

sorry i didn't understand it correctly. use abs and get virtualbox-ose build, adjust the _kernver variable and run makepkg. Now the modules are built  within the virtualbox-ose package.

i already was trying to build it through abs, the _kerner was missing....
