    Default VirtualBox OSE install problems opensuse 11

    I am using instructions to install VirtualBox I am using the instructions listed here.
    VirtualBox Installation - openSUSE

    I am getting the following error

    linux-ewbv:~ # /etc/init.d/vboxdrv setup
    Stopping VirtualBox kernel module done
    Recompiling VirtualBox kernel module failed
    (Look at /var/log/vbox-install.log to find out what went wrong)
    linux-ewbv:~ #

    here is what the log says
    /usr/share/virtualbox/src/build_in_tmp: line 99: make: command not found

    any suggestions?
    Thanks

    Have you installed the make package with YaST? You will also need gcc.

    Ok I installed GCC using Yast and re ran VirtualBox OSE
    I got an error upon starting the new virtual machine I want to install.

    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).


    Result Code:
    0x80004005
    Component:
    Console
    Interface:
    IConsole {d5a1cbda-f5d7-4824-9afe-d640c94c7dcf}

    I did as instructed in the error message and I got the following

    linux-ewbv:~ # /etc/init.d/vboxdrv setup
    Stopping VirtualBox kernel module done
    Recompiling VirtualBox kernel module failed
    (Look at /var/log/vbox-install.log to find out what went wrong)
    linux-ewbv:~ #

    I am still having the same issue.
    here is another copy of the log after GCC is installed it is the same

    /usr/share/virtualbox/src/build_in_tmp: line 99: make: command not found

    You need to install make too.

    Thanks for the info... I did as instructed, got another error that was a permissions issue. I went to this web page, continued to follow the instructions there.
    VirtualBox On FC6 / CentOS 4 / OpenSuSE 10.2 - Page 2 | HowtoForge - Linux Howtos and Tutorials
    I was able to then get it set up as it should be done.
    Thanks again for all the help, I would not have gotten this done with out the help from here in the forums.
