    Default virtualbox kernal ???

    virtuabox starts up ok.. But soon as it starts to load or install a OS.. I get a message


    VirtualBox kernel driver not installed. The vboxdrv kernel module was either not loaded or /dev/vboxdrv was not created for some reason. Re-setup the kernel module by executing '/etc/init.d/vboxdrv setup' as root.
    VBox status code: -1908 (VERR_VM_DRIVER_NOT_INSTALLED).

    So I did the '/etc/init.d/vboxdrv setup'

    /etc/init.d/vboxdrv setup
    Stopping VirtualBox kernel module done
    Recompiling VirtualBox kernel module, NOT. It has been packaged. done
    Starting VirtualBox kernel module failed
    (modprobe vboxdrv failed. Please use 'dmesg' to find out why)

    I do dmesg...

    Default Re: virtualbox kernal ???

    I've gotten this before. I forget what I did, but I might have opened up yast and installed kernel-sources.

    It seems you have installed the openSUSE RPM of VirtualBox which has
    been crippled so you cannot recompile the kernel driver module.
    There are two possible solutions:
    a) Install the VirtualBox kernel module RPM (virtualbox-kmp-*)
    matching *exactly* your kernel version. This is of course only
    possible if you are running a SUSE kernel.
    b) Remove the crippled openSUSE version and install the VirtualBox
    RPM you can download from Sun instead. You'll also have to install
    the C development tools (gcc, make, ...) and kernel sources
    (package "kernel-source" if you are running the openSUSE kernel)
    but you can then recompile the VirtualBox module whenever you need.
