[SOLVED] VirtualBox modules refuse to build with new kernel

Maybe I am just missing something, but I tried the usual vbox_build_module command as root, and it error-ed out. I tried reinstalling it from a precompiled binary, but zilch. I know that VirtualBox is not officially supported, but I was just curious to see if this was something new about the kernel, or if it was a bug that I should report to VirtualBox.

Thank you!

Re: [SOLVED] VirtualBox modules refuse to build with new kernel

are you using 2.6.32? then you should install kernel26-headers.


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

Re: [SOLVED] VirtualBox modules refuse to build with new kernel

Huh....   I thought I had them installed...     Strange, they did not update when I -Syu'ed, and that would be because I grabbed the kernel right after it updated, and before the headers hit testing...  geesh. I should have spotted that one. 

I need more coffee this morning, apparently.


Thank ya, wonder!

Edit:  Ok, maybe my brain isn't working all that slow. I looked again and there are still no .32 headers. They must not be built yet by the devs.   I can wait.

kernel-headers != kernel26-headers

See http://mailman.archlinux.org/pipermail/ … 14525.html
