Thread: virtualbox don't start after kernelupdate

  1. #1

    Default virtualbox don't start after kernelupdate

    Hi friends of suse,
    I have a problem with my suse11.1 and virtualbox by SUN.
    On my notebook(Lenovo 300 N200) there run a Suse11.1. In SUNs VirtualBox there run a XP. Because I have have trouble with my internal webcam, I made a kernel-update (without success). Since this time, I can't start the VirtualBox yet.

    kein Link

    short after this, there is another popup

    kein Link

    now I made the follow

    Code:
    linux:/home/norbert # /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:/home/norbert # cat /var/log/vbox-install.log
    Makefile:172: *** Error: unable to find the include directory for your current Linux kernel. Specify KERN_INCL=<directory> and run Make again.  Stop.
    but it isn't possible (see the logfile). I don't know what to do, because I'm a Newbeeee... coming from MS.
    I have deinstalled vbox and reinstalled it, but the error is still...
    Is there anybody can help me?

    kind regards
    Norbert

    See if you have installed kernel headers.
    Code:
    zypper install linux-kernel-headers
    openSUSE 12.3 (x86_64) with Kernel 3.7.10-1.16-desktop and KDE 4.11.2 on MacBook Pro
    Latest MS Windows version used: Win95

    You said your kernel update was aborted. How did it happen? Was it from the online update? Can you see if you can complete that first?

    I presume your kernel source matches the kernel you've got?
    Man first, have a try at Info, have a look at Wiki, if all that fails Scroogle!!!!!
    If I've helped click on the Rep button I don't know what it does but it sounds cool.

    norbert@linux:~> rpm -qa | grep kernel
    linux-kernel-headers-2.6.27-2.28
    kernel-default-2.6.27.23-0.1.1
    kernel-default-extra-2.6.27.23-0.1.1
    kernel-default-base-2.6.27.23-0.1.1
    norbert@linux:~>

    Afaik the headers are fine (Don't ask me) but you don't have the source installed. Try
    zypper in kernel-source or using yast, just make sure this adds up to your kernel I notice a couple of versions about on update you need .23

    o.k.
    Code:
    norbert@linux:~> rpm -qa | grep kernel

    kernel-source-2.6.27.23-0.1.1
    kernel-default-2.6.27.23-0.1.1
    kernel-default-extra-2.6.27.23-0.1.1
    kernel-default-base-2.6.27.23-0.1.1
    norbert@linux:~>
    can I do something else to be able to run VirtualBox?

    Now go back to the original command /etc/init.d/vboxdrv setup that should do it. If it doesn't then I noticed a translated page do it as ./vboxdrv setup but I've not got a clue where from.
