Possible to install virtualbox in F15 yet?

I see virtualbox is in the repo. but installing virtualbox produces "Kernel driver not installed (rc=-1908)".

Running '/etc/sysconfig/modules/VirtualBox-OSE.modules' as suggested in the error window produces:

ERROR: modinfo: could not find module vboxdrv
ERROR: modinfo: could not find module vboxnetflt
ERROR: modinfo: could not find module vboxnetadp


I have installed the kernel headers etc.

Any help wopuld be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

I just download it from the VirtualBox site and install it that way. It's working fine for me.


You may need the kernel-devel package.

Thanks for the reply. Downloaded and installed the Fedora 14 package from the virtualbox site - but still have the same issue.

Turned out I didn't have gcc installed - but this produced dependency errors when trying to install.

Turns out I had to enable the updates-testing repo (see. http://forums.fedoraforum.org/showthread.php?t=263253). All is good now.

Re: Possible to install virtualbox in F15 yet?

Hello,

I installed VirtualBox 4.0.8 r71778 downloaded directly from Oracle instead of from the Fedora repo via yum. It has an update to support F15 and it is working well.

Unfortunately, I could not build the kernel module for the VB Guest Addons. I'm hoping that the addons will enable me to run F15 in 3D accelerated so I can use the full Gnome3-shell and not just the fallback mode.

I first ran yum --fix-broken groupinstall 'development tools' 'development libraries' and didn't get the gcc compiler. Below is what happens if I run yum install gcc.

It appears that the F15 repos are mixed up. Hopefully, this will be fixed soon.

Code:
--> Finished Dependency Resolution
Error: Package: glibc-devel-2.13.90-9.i686 (fedora)
           Requires: glibc = 2.13.90-9
           Installed: glibc-2.13.90-13.i686 (@updates-testing)
               glibc = 2.13.90-13

               glibc = 2.13.90-9

           Available: glibc-2.13.90-9.i686 (fedora)
               glibc = 2.13.90-9
 You could try using --skip-broken to work around the problem
 You could try running: rpm -Va --nofiles --nodigest
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Never mind, enabling update-testing (see previous post) fixed my dependancy problem. I'm a slow poster.
