Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 612971
the VirtualBox kernel modules are not updated if a new kernel is installed
Last modified: 2010-09-13 03:00:28 EDT
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:
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Each time after the kernel is updated
Steps to Reproduce:
VirtualBox rejects start
The VM is booted
My error: I forgot to install dkms
