Virtual Box install problem on FC10


I've tried, unsucessfully, to install Sun Virtual Box on my FC10. It's a bit of a funny install where you have to install the package and then compile it for your system... Very well, I'm not a Linux expert so I suspect it has to do with virtualization in the kernel.

This was the link I found


I did all until number 3 (included) which is vboxdrv setup.

[root desktop Download]# /etc/init.d/vboxdrv setup
Stopping VirtualBox kernel module                          [  OK  ]
Removing old VirtualBox netflt kernel module               [  OK  ]
Removing old VirtualBox kernel module                      [  OK  ]
Recompiling VirtualBox kernel module                       [  OK  ]
Starting VirtualBox kernel module                          [FAILED]
  (modprobe vboxdrv failed. Please use 'dmesg' to find out why)

running dmesg gives me the following

vboxdrv: version magic ' SMP mod_unload 686 4KSTACKS ' should be ' SMP mod_unload 686 4KSTACKS '

I guess it has something to do with PAE. Somehting I've noticed is that the src downloaded from yum is in folder /urs/src/kernels/ (notice that there is no PAE at the end).

uname -a givesd this:

Linux desktop.lan #1 SMP Wed May 20 22:58:30 EDT 2009 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux
