    You should only need the kernel-source. That will include all the header files and that is what is needed. Having symbols installed is only confusing things because it is also the headers. Deinstall symbols.

    Don't know why symbols has not updated but you don't need it if you have source.

    Hi
    ? when doing any work with the openSUSE kernel, you need kernel-source,
    linux-kernel-headers, kernel-syms, make and gcc or you could install
    the devel_kernel pattern.

    Bzzt! Befuddled admin.

    I have been working on too many computers at once. The computer where VB would not build did indeed install the latest kernel version, but I had not yet rebooted the computer for it to take effect.

    Once it was rebooted, vboxdrv built as expected.
