Having a problem...

When I download the Virtualbox package from the site you provided in the previous post, I received the following failed to install file error:

failed to get a TID: A security policy in place prevents this sender from sending this message to this recipient, see message bus configuration file (rejected message had interface "org.freedesktop.PackageKit.Transaction" member "SetLocale" error name "(unset)" destination "org.freedesktop.PackageKit") (0)

Can you please assist me...

Hi,

The kvm and kvm_intel (for intel cpus) or kvm_amd (amd cpu) modules
can't be loaded while VirtualBox is trying to use its vboxdrv module.
Unload kvm and kvm_intel (or kvm_adm) modules and then run Virtualbox
(making sure vboxdrv is loaded before hand).

Unhappy virtualbox mistake in fedora 10, cannot find kernel source

I have a problem when inputing
/etc/init.d/vboxdrv setup

I get
Stopping VirtualBox kernel module [ OK ]
Recompiling VirtualBox kernel module [FAILED]
(Look at /var/log/vbox-install.log to find out what went wrong)


in the vbox-install.log I find


Attempting to install using DKMS

You probably don't have the kernel development files,
as root run this:
Quote:
yum install kernel-devel
then redo
Quote:
/etc/init.d/vboxdrv setup
Note you have to do this while running the actual kernel you want to target for the
vboxdrv module (the vboxdrv setup looks at the "uname -r" value and uses that to figure out where to look for your development files)

hi, kc2dws,

I finally find out the problem.
It is because the source and the kernel are not the same version.

You can first find out what version of kernel is running , then remove the source and DKMS,
then download the right soure rpm package depending on the kernel version you have found out, install it ,then install DKMS.And DKMS will not make mistake again.

I forget the commands,sorry.
