    Default VirtualBox 3.0.2 on openSUSE 11.1

    I have installed VirtualBox 3.0.2 rpm from VirtualBox site but when I try to lunch some system on VB it tells me "Kernel driver not installed (rc=-1908)" so I run as root:

    Code:
    /etc/init.d/vboxdrv setup
    but it shows:

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

    vbox-install.log:
    Code:
    Makefile:174: *** Error: unable to find the include directory for your current Linux kernel. Specify KERN_INCL=<directory> and run Make again.  Stop.
    I didn't find the solution anywhere...

    You need to be more specific as to what you have done, what you have and what is happening or Not as the case may be.

    This is the second case of installing kernel-syms was the solution to
    installing / using some other package recently.

    This is one case where adding another repo to the list has resulted in
    resolving a lot of PITA issues. I added:
    http://download.virtualbox.org/virtu.../opensuse/11.1 to my repo list
    and all the nonsense with VBox updates went away - it just works.

    I'm using the AMD x86_64 version but the repo setup seems to detect the
    proper version. Haven't looked at 11.2 in any detail and probably won't -
    too many issues for my taste - but I checked and there is an 11.2 path on
    the download site. Watching the messages during update, it takes care of
    the /etc/init.d/vboxdrv update and reload process which means the rpm
    likely has dependencies that will pull in the kernel stuff if missing.
    That's the most common issue I see with VBox updates here.
