There is no vboxnetflt module in the Virtualbox 2.1.2-1 packages?

Hello,

I updated my Virtualbox from 1.x to 2.1.2-1.

I got this error message:

woody@SOSdan-Console % VBoxHeadless -startvm SOSdan-V01
VirtualBox Headless Interface 2.1.2_OSE
(C) 2008-2009 Sun Microsystems, Inc.
All rights reserved.

Error: failed to start machine. Error message: Failed to open/create the internal network 'HostInterfaceNetworking-br0' (VERR_SUPDRV_COMPONENT_NOT_FOUND).
Failed to attach the network LUN (VERR_SUPDRV_COMPONENT_NOT_FOUND).
Unknown error creating VM (VERR_SUPDRV_COMPONENT_NOT_FOUND)

Now I can't start my virtual machine if I use Host Interface Networking.  This error always occurs no matter what network interface is chosen.

Google tells me that I need to load the vboxnetflt module.
However there is no module called "vboxnetflt" in the packages.
(btw, There's also no "VboxAddIF" which ArchWiki mentioned)

woody@SOSdan-Console % pacman -Qs virtualbox
local/virtualbox-modules 2.1.2-1
    Kernel modules for VirtualBox (vboxdrv)
local/virtualbox-ose 2.1.2-1
    Powerful x86 virtualization for enterprise as well as home use (Open Source Edition)
woody@SOSdan-Console % pacman -Ql virtualbox-modules virtualbox-ose|grep vboxnetflt
woody@SOSdan-Console % echo 'Any Ideas?'
Any Ideas?
woody@SOSdan-Console %

Thanks

that's because i see in PKGBUILD that the maintainer only install vboxdrv.ko. you should request to include that module on bugs.archlinux.org or you can use abs and modify the build

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

I tried to build it by myself just now and I failed at the checking for qt3 with a "Segmentation fault".

I'll open a thread in bugs.archlinux.org.

Thank you.

Re: There is no vboxnetflt module in the Virtualbox 2.1.2-1 packages?

I have this problem as well.  After upgrading, I can no longer launch my VirtualMachine, which I absolutely require for work.  Host networking is also necessary, so reconfiguring for NAT networking is not an option.

How exactly do I report a bug on this?  I searched through the bug tracker and didn't find any recent bug reports about this issue, so I'm assuming woodykiang hasn't yet filed the report.  I tried to submit one myself, but the bug tracker only has categories for the Core and Extra repositories.  As virtualbox-modules is in community, I'm not sure what I'm supposed to do here.

vboxdrv also does not work with the latest kernel which is why I rolled back. Is this the same thing? Does the vboxdrv module need to be recompiled for the latest kernel also?

 IMPORTANT NOTES:

- Run "vbox_build_module" as root every time your kernel is upgraded, to
  compile the module for the new kernel version.

I tried adding the patch suggested on the bug page, but it's still not building the vboxnetftl module. In fact, the directory in abs is empty after building (pkg/lib/modules/misc). Does anyone know how to fix this?
