Thread: Virtual Box Installation Error

  1. #1

    Default Virtual Box Installation Error

    When i try to install virtual box 10.3 i get the following error

    Makefile:154: *** Error: unable to find the include directory for your current Linux kernel. Specify KERN_INCL=<directory> and run Make again. Stop.


    I am using VirtualBox-1.6.2_31466_openSUSE103-1.i586.rpm.

    Does anyone have any ideas on how to resolve this error, and complete the installation.

    You need to install the kernel-sources package. You also need gcc if you haven't got it already.

    Does your kernel-source match the running kernel in version? Especially after the last kernel update.

    Press Alt and F2

    Type
    konsole
    and press ENTER

    Type
    uname -r
    and press ENTER

    You will see something like this
    2.6.25.9-0.2-default

    Note the word default. I have had issues with the pae kernel and virtualbox. If you do not have the default kernel, install through yast

    kernel-default
    kernel-syms
    linux-kernel-headers
    virtualbox-ose-kmp-default
    Xalan-c
    Xerces-c

    Then when booting remember to select the kernel-default entry and boot.
    Now try to install and run Virtualbox

    i had the same error becaues i updated kernel-sources from the online repository but still had an older kernel from my installation DVD. I solved the problem by updating the kernel from the online repository as well. As i've read, the version Numbers of kernel and sources can differ, but they have to be issued on the same day.
