I’m new to Linux, but already learned a lot of it from the web.
I managed to install Virtualbox on my opensuse 11.2
I configured it for a windows xp guest OS.
When I start the guest OS, I get error mesages.
For some reason I installed this today. (Ok been chomping at the bit to try LMDE)
I had to:
install vbox download
run:sudo /etc/init.d/vboxdrv setup
then reinstalled vbox download
then ran modprobe vboxdrv reboot
To get rid of the error and failed building the kernel modules "modprobe vboxnetflt failed. Please use ‘dmesg’ to find out why"
For some reason unknown to me it wouldn’t build without the reinstall step. I did try the prescribed methods first a couple times.
Now runs as advertised
Updating my VBox LMDE installs 390 packages…
I’m new in this forum (sorry if it’s not the right place to add a new thread).
I’m a beginner concerning virtual box (from Linux_Downloads - VirtualBox) installed on Opensuse 11.2 (uname -r: 188.8.131.52-0.1-default as kernel).
I ve read the information concerning the installation and installed the required files (make, gcc…) and kernel updates…
But I still get the same log error and i don’t now why my “kernel configuration is invalid”(see log) . How can i fix it?
Could you help me please?
