Description Joachim Backes 2012-04-22 10:25:12 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):


How reproducible:
Each time a new kernel is installed.

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Install a new kernel
2.Reboot with the new kernel
3.Start virtualbox
Actual results:
virtual fails to start and to start the VM(see above)

Expected results:
virtualbox continues to boot the VM.

Additional info:
No such problems in F16
