Thread: Installing virtualbox

  1. #1

    Default Installing virtualbox

    Hi again
    I have installed virtualbox on my system. It did not work at first, so I did some googling and found that things where not installed. Having installed them . I got the info from http://www.linuxtechi.com/installati...use-13-1-13-2/

    I tried again and I got this
    Code:
    linux-ejoz:~> virtualbox
    WARNING: The vboxdrv kernel module is not loaded. Either there is no module
             available for the current kernel (3.16.7-21-desktop) or it failed to
             load. Please recompile the kernel module and install it by
    
               sudo /etc/init.d/vboxdrv setup
    
             You will not be able to start VMs until this problem is fixed.
    Qt WARNING: libpng warning: iCCP: known incorrect sRGB profile
    This line was repeated about hundred times"Qt WARNING: libpng warning: iCCP: known incorrect sRGB profile"
    so i did "sudo /etc/init.d/vboxdrv setup" and got
    Code:
    Stopping VirtualBox kernel modules                                                 done
    Recompiling VirtualBox kernel modules                                                       failed
      (Look at /var/log/vbox-install.log to find out what went wrong)
    Look at /var/log/vbox-install.log to find out what went wrong and got this
    Code:
    Makefile:183: *** Error: unable to find the sources of your current Linux kernel. Specify KERN_DIR=<directory> and run Make again.  Stop.
    As it stands now when I start virtualbox, it prints that line a hundred time and virtual starts. however with that error above will the program function properly.

    using KDE

    Thank you for your assistance

    Default AW: Installing virtualbox

    1. You have installed Virtualbox from openSUSE and from the Oracle-VirtualBox-Repo.
    Only one at same time will work

    2. You have all your kernel-build installed for kernel 3.16.7-24.1, but the kernel is not installed, only 3.16.7-21.1.
    Try to install kernel-desktop-3.16.7-24.1.

    3. vboxgtk is broken, install virtualbox-qt

    4. There is a VirtualBox-Repo for openSUSE 13.2, you do not need the one for 12.3:
    http://download.virtualbox.org/virtu.../opensuse/13.2

    Solution:

    Deinstall Virtualbox from Oracle and vboxgtk:
    Code:
    zypper rm VirtualBox-4.3 vboxgtk
    Delete the Oracle-Repo:
    Code:
    zypper rr 'VirtualBox for openSUSE 12.3'
    Install virtualbox-qt and kernel 3.16.7-24.1-desktop:
    Code:
    zypper in -f virtualbox-qt kernel-desktop-3.16.7-24.1

    That doesn't matter really.
    The version for kernel 3.16.7-21.1 should work fine on 3.16.7-24.1 as well.
