It just happened again with the versions I cited above. Ubuntu has its own solution for signing kernel modules which we might make use of. Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter. Running the following commands should set the system up correctly: yum install kernel-core-devel-4. A kernel driver not installed usually happens if there is either no module available for the current running kernel or if for some reason the startup script which ensures that the kernel modules are loaded is not properly executed during boot. If you want any progress with your problem, provide a reliable reproduction scenario and start with the information I asked for in my previous comment.
The vbox drivers do exist for the booted kernel proven by the fact that a simple reboot will sometimes correct the problem , but for some reason either 1 the startup scripts fail to load the drivers, or 2 the vbox drivers sometimes get an error during their init phase and fail to load. Don't forget to download the extension pack from as well. Sometimes a reboot will actually resolve a VirtualBox issue. If you take a look the number of open bug tickets on our tracker, assume that fixing the simplest of them will take at least half a day of developer time after you count testing, communication and so on you may see what I mean though. The instructions that it gives do not work for me but these two commands work everytime. Update: this ticket has been closed.

This is just like the 3d-driver stuff on Windows: at some version you created a driver that had to be installed in such a way that was later impossible to remove on the guest Windows system. For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. More precisely, vboxnetadp is needed to create the host interface in the VirtualBox global preferences, and vboxnetflt is needed to launch a virtual machine using that network interface. At the moment of installation, I got the Error! Did you install Virtualbox by downloading it from some web site? Do you want to continue? Once the kernel modules are built for the current kernel, they load fine here during every boot. Also, updated kernel driver but not worked.
Are you new to LinuxQuestions. Please don't mix the facts here. I have the Oracle Virtualbox will go into it and see what it has. Processing triggers for desktop-file-utils 0. . From your description I assume that you just did a kernel update and there was no kernel module available for the new kernel. If you can suggest some debugging steps, I'll be glad to perform them on the next kernel update.
Running the following commands should set the system up correctly: yum install kernel-core-devel-4. Once the kernel modules are built for the current kernel, they load fine here during every boot. It's not my job to investigate the issue further, it's yours. But the problem has been reported to me by others and it is a fairly rare occurrence. Site Moderator Posts: 24156 Joined: 22.

I had dkms and all the modules already installed and compiled into my kernel, yet I still got a module related error message when I tried to run a vBox virtual machine. Auto update is off and I've verified that the kernel version is not changing. Actually comment 16 contains instructions how to fix the problem. I've been unable to debug this myself because I have not been able to reproduce it personally. Please use 'dmesg' to find out why.
Either there is no module available for the current kernel 4. If you Virtual Machine runs after that without giving you an error message, you've found the solution. If other distributions also provide solutions we will certainly look at them. Closing this, though it is possible that we will be working on it further in future. More precisely, vboxnetadp is needed to create the host interface in the VirtualBox global preferences, and vboxnetflt is needed to launch a virtual machine using that network interface. Just thought I would add my tuppeneth! Registration is quick, simple and absolutely free.
It will start the Recovery mode. This typically requires a reboot. We don't live inside your head so we can't see what you see, we only know what you tell us.
