VirtualBox kernel driver issues *resolved*

Post#1 by Shoshi » 19 Mar 2016, 21:45

I have looked throughout the forums and I cannot seem to find a resolution to my issue. I am running Porteus 3.1 64 bit on my laptop (I did an HDD install on a small partition) and it works well. I used the vbox builder script and it built without issue, however I receive an error when I try to start a vm. I have the devel module installed and I have rebooted but the issue persists.

Thanks in advance!

Once and a while the virtual box builder does not provide functional vbox installations.

Here are my vbox module for 64bit for porteus 3.1:

That's unfortunate. Is there anyway to fix the builder? I do appreciate the links for the modules!

I installed the modules you linked and while I no longer get that kernel driver error it fails to run any virtual machine I created.
The virtual machine 'MX' has terminated unexpectedly during startup with exit code 1 (0x1).

Please try the following:

Make sure you have the 05-devel.xzm module and the crippled kernel sources activated. Then download and run the following file:

http://download.virtualbox.org/virtualbox/5.0.16/

VirtualBox-5.0.16-105871-Linux_amd64.run
VirtualBox-5.0.16-105871-Linux_x86.run

Thanks for the reply!

Is 000-kernel.xzm the crippled kernel sources?

I have searched and it looks like it's another package that should be in the packages folder on the website. I have checked a few other sites and cannot seem to find the correct package.

To porteus 3.1 kernel 3.17.4
crippled kernel sources are included in 05-devel.xzm

Olny run VirtualBox builder to build your VirtualBox module.

It works now! Apparently the 05-devel.xzm that the vbox builder downloads is different than the one from the website. Thanks so much!
