virtualbox / vboxdrv problem [SOLVED]

Hey

Im having problems installing virtualbox on:

Linux mtarch.INTERNETT 3.7.4-1-ARCH #1 SMP PREEMPT Mon Jan 21 23:05:29 CET 2013 x86_64 GNU/Linux

Output of "pacman -Q --search virtual":

local/virtualbox 4.2.6-1
    Powerful x86 virtualization for enterprise as well as home use
local/virtualbox-host-dkms 4.2.6-1
    VirtualBox Host kernel modules sources
local/virtualbox-host-modules 4.2.6-4
    Host kernel modules for VirtualBox
local/vte 0.28.2-3
    Virtual Terminal Emulator widget for use with GTK2

VirtualBox runs, and i can create a new machine, but when i start it i get errors like:

Failed to open a session for the virtual machine test.
The virtual machine 'test' has terminated unexpectedly during startup with exit code 1.

And:

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. Please reinstall the kernel module by executing

'pacman -S virtualbox-host-modules'

as root. If you don't use our stock kernel, install virtualbox-host-source and execute dkms autoinstall



So, ive installed virtualbox-host-modules.

BUT

When i run

dkms install vboxhost/4.2.6
Error! echo
Your kernel headers for kernel 3.7.4-1-ARCH cannot be found at
/usr/lib/modules/3.7.4-1-ARCH/build or /usr/lib/modules/3.7.4-1-ARCH/source.

Does anyone have a clue? Im kinda stuck..

Regards.

Scimmia:
first

sudo pacman -Syuf

next :

reboot

next:

dkms install vboxhost/4.2.6 -k 3.7.5-1-ARCH x86_64

over:

VirtualBox

If you have questions, you may be able to install "qt" try good luck

Re: virtualbox / vboxdrv problem [SOLVED]

leic, never, never EVER run pacman -Syuf !!!

This will force all updates, which can and will break your system. Use pacman -Syu instead.

This kind of thing is why they're removing the "f" and making you type --force in pacman 4.1

I confused the three days, the unfortunate use of the "f", next time do not use, thank you!
