Hi everyone,

ERROR message from virtual box:Error! Your kernel source for kernel cannot be found at /lib/modules/ or /lib/modules/
You can use the --kernelsourcedir option to tell DKMS where it's located.
Failed to install using DKMS, attempting to install without
For some reason i have this directory:/usr/src/kernels/

but when i run uname -r i get:

[root localhost]# pwd
[root localhost]# uname -r

can someone please put me on the right direction?

Thanks a lot,


As root, or via sudo, just install kernel devel:

sudo yum install kernel-devel

and then run

sudo service vboxdrv  setup

and that should then build the vbox driver and install it.

I am not sure what had done in the past to get /usr/src/kernels/ You or someone had probably booted kernel and then installed

Good luck.
