Description Joachim Backes 2010-07-09 12:40:24 UTC
Description of problem:
I'm running F13 and VirtualBox from virtualbox.org (not Virtualbox-ose). Each time a new kernel is installed, the virtualbox box driver modules are *not
rebuilt*. So, after rebooting my box and starting VirtualBox for the first time (after kernel update), the VirtualBox start is
rejected and a PopupUp appears saying something as "Fedora users should
install DKMS", and I have to do "/etc/init.d/vboxdrv setup" manually.

After having done "/etc/init.d/vboxdrv setup" once, then VirtualBox starts flawless (until the next kernel update).

But in my box, the most recent (??) version of dkms is installed:
dkms-2.1.0.1-1.fc12.noarch.


Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
dkms-2.1.0.1-1.fc12.noarch.

How reproducible:
Each time after the kernel is updated

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Update kernel
2.Reboot
3.Start VirtualBox
  
Actual results:
VirtualBox rejects start

Expected results:
The VM is booted
