    Default Kernel sources for virtualbox

    Hi!
    I have suse11 and I install virtualbox but... I can't it run because I don't have the kernel sources... so... how can I install them? (in my last distro I installed from console with command: urpmi kernel-sources).
    I have kernel 2.6.25-5.1... and I found kernel sources 2.6.25.11-1 or something....

    tk

    Goto yast>software management and search kernel-headers. Click on the box at the left of the name of the package you want to install and accept

    I installed VirtualBox last week and had to go to Install Software and searched kernel-source. The package was there and VirtualBox worked after installing. I also had to install Make to get the vbox-driver to work.

    Index of /repositories/Virtualization:/VirtualBox/openSUSE_11.0

    I will post snapshots and console error... especially that repo I don't have ... I have oficial repositories (oss, non-oss, update, src-oss, src-non-oss, !!debug??!!, packman, nvidia)
