Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 815103
virtualbox kernel modules are not updated by dkms if a new kernel is installed
Last modified: 2012-05-23 05:08:05 EDT
Description of problem:
I'm running VirtualBox from virtualbox.org. DKMS is installed. I expect a remake of the vbox kernel modules if a new kernel is installed, but this does not happen. After a reboot with the new kernel, the next start of virtualbox fails, and I get from virtualbox an error message including an advice: Run "/etc/init.d/vboxdrv setup" for building the new vbox kernelmodules.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Each time a new kernel is installed.
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Install a new kernel
2.Reboot with the new kernel
virtual fails to start and to start the VM(see above)
virtualbox continues to boot the VM.
No such problems in F16
Remark: Following the hint in https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Common_F17_bugs#dkms-old-fail (I received by Adam Williamson) did not solve the problem.
Solved in the meantime (dkms-188.8.131.52-2.fc17.noarch)
