Thread: VirtualBox non-ose in OpenSuse 11.1

  1. #1

    Default VirtualBox non-ose in OpenSuse 11.1

    Hi,

    I try to install virtualbox non-ose 3.0.2 on OpenSuse 11.1 64bits.

    After install, I try:
    sudo /etc/init.d/vboxdrv setup

    and I get it:
    Stopping VirtualBox kernel module done
    Recompiling VirtualBox kernel module failed
    (Look at /var/log/vbox-install.log to find out what went wrong)

    and at log:
    Makefile:174: *** Error: unable to find the include directory for your current Linux kernel. Specify KERN_INCL=<directory> and run Make again. Stop.

    Anybody can help, please ?

    Instead of using sudo use open a console/terminal and:

    su

    and login as root with the root password.

    sudo only executes the first command as root and then drops back to normal
    user perms so it does not have the permissions to continue.

    su on the other hand changes the console/terminal to a full blown root
    terminal and so all subsequent commands have root control and perms.

    you need to type

    exit

    to get back to the user console from there.

    If you want more info have a look at man sudo, man su.

    Hi,
    kernel updated by Yast (don't know if really necessary, but...)
    works fine after a reboot (not a logout :/ )
    Tanks for all !

    You need the reboot because of the new kernel because the 3.0.2 vbox modules are built to go with the latest kernel. If the kernel gets updated and vbox doesn't, then you will need the kernel-source package to rebuild the modules.

    A logout and login is sufficient if the problem is that you have just added yourself to /etc/group.

    Not sure what all the fuss is about. Recently installed 3.0.2 on 11.1 and 11.2 Milestone3. In both cases it recompiled and reloaded the kernel module. No need for sudo /etc/init.d/vboxdrv setup. That's a first. The new VBox started and ran all prior settings and .dvi files without issue. The easiest upgrade ever from VBox with no permission problems etc. No reboots required. Great!

    Probably because they have taught the post-install script to do any required compilation.
