    Default Can't get vbox kernel module

    Here it's me again with my kernel 2.6.36 upgrade adventures
    I have been trying to run my vmachines in virtualbox with no success so I decided to install upgraded packages for upgraded kernel, this means to install them from Virtualization-kernel-HEAD repo.

    The error is about that known issue where the kernel module can't start. So when I try 'sudo /etc/init.d/vboxdrv setup' the result is:
    Code:
    /etc/init.d/vboxdrv: line 83: log_daemon_msg: command not found
     done.                                                                                                                            done
    /etc/init.d/vboxdrv: line 83: log_daemon_msg: command not found
    /etc/init.d/vboxdrv: line 281: /usr/share/%PACKAGE%/src/vboxhost/do_dkms: No such file or directory
     done.                                                                                                                            done
    /etc/init.d/vboxdrv: line 83: log_daemon_msg: command not found
    /etc/init.d/vboxdrv: line 299: /usr/share/%PACKAGE%/src/vboxhost/do_dkms: No such file or directory
    
    Failed, trying without DKMS                                                                                                       failed
    /etc/init.d/vboxdrv: line 83: log_daemon_msg: command not found
    
    Look at /var/log/vbox-install.log to find out what went wrong                                                                     failed
    Currently I'm booting with desktop kernel 2.6.36 (multiple kernels).
    Code:

    kernel-devel-2.6.36-90.1.noarch
    Code:
    hernan@hernan-CL:~> rpm -q make gcc linux-glibc-devel
    make-3.81-135.1.i586
    gcc-4.5-4.2.i586
    linux-glibc-devel-2.6.32-3.3.noarch
    The virtualbox installation log shows me again:
    Code:
    /etc/init.d/vboxdrv: line 303: /usr/share/%PACKAGE%/src/vboxhost/vboxdrv/build_in_tmp: No such file or directory
    Thanks in advance!

    Default Re: Can't get vbox kernel module

    Any suggestion?
    I have found that the vboxdrv script is not working well on my system. The error: '/etc/init.d/vboxdrv: line 83: log_daemon_msg: command not found' refers to
    Code:
    begin_msg() {
            log_daemon_msg "$@"
        }
    Has someone successfully installed virtualbox in openSUSE 11.3 with kernel 2.6.36??
