package virtualbox-ose-host-kmp-desktop: cannot find kernel-module vboxdrv.ko

I have installed the packages

virtualbox-ose-host-kmp-desktop-3.2.10_k2.6.34.7_0.5-118.2.i586
virtualbox-ose-3.2.10-118.2.i586
virtualbox-ose-qt-3.2.10-118.2.i586
virtualbox-ose-guest-kmp-desktop-3.2.10_k2.6.34.7_0.5-118.2.i586
xorg-x11-driver-virtualbox-ose-3.2.10-118.2.i586
virtualbox-ose-guest-tools-3.2.10-118.2.i586

When I try to start a virtual machine this error message pops up:

Kernel driver not installed (rc=-1908)

The VirtualBox Linux kernel driver (vboxdrv) is either not loaded or there is a permission problem with /dev/vboxdrv. Please reinstall the kernel module by executing

‘/etc/init.d/vboxdrv setup’

as root. Users of Ubuntu, Fedora or Mandriva should install the DKMS package first. This package keeps track of Linux kernel changes and recompiles the vboxdrv kernel module if necessary.

Searching for vboxdrv.ko is not successful, although the kernel module should be provided by virtualbox-ose-host-kmp-desktop-3.2.10_k2.6.34.7_0.5-118.2.i586. I cannot find the other modules vboxnetadp.ko, vboxnetflt.ko as well.

Did I miss something?

You might want to remove all that and consider this

Thank you, it works now. I will add “Forum: Unreviewed How To and FAQ” to my bookmarks.

No worries :wink:
