  • Need help with Virtualbox installation not starting? Here is the solution!!!

    I was having a problem with installing a working Virtualbox. Here was my install log......



    Attempting to install using DKMS
    removing old DKMS module vboxdrv version 3.2.8

    -------- Uninstall Beginning --------
    Module: vboxdrv
    Version: 3.2.8
    Kernel: 2.6.32-0206321708-generic (i686)
    -------------------------------------

    Status: Before uninstall, this module version was ACTIVE on this kernel.

    vboxdrv.ko:
    - Uninstallation
    - Deleting from: /lib/modules/2.6.32-0206321708-generic/updates/dkms/
    - Original module
    - No original module was found for this module on this kernel.
    - Use the dkms install command to reinstall any previous module version.

    depmod....(bad exit status: 1)

    DKMS: uninstall Completed.

    ------------------------------
    Deleting module version: 3.2.8
    completely from the DKMS tree.
    ------------------------------
    Done.

    Creating symlink /var/lib/dkms/vboxdrv/3.2.8/source ->
    /usr/src/vboxdrv-3.2.8

    DKMS: add Completed.

    Error! Your kernel source for kernel 2.6.28-17-linuxice2 cannot be found at
    /lib/modules/2.6.28-17-linuxice2/build or /lib/modules/2.6.28-17-linuxice2/source.
    You can use the --kernelsourcedir option to tell DKMS where it's located.
    Failed to install using DKMS, attempting to install without
    Makefile:159: *** Error: unable to find the sources of your current Linux kernel. Specify KERN_DIR=<directory> and run Make again. Stop.





    UPDATE: here is the code to fix the installation in case anyone else needs it......

    sudo apt-get install linux-headers-$(uname -r)


    Then reboot your machine
