Re: Virtual Box install problem on FC10

yum install akmod-VirtualBox-OSE works... well, it installs all the packages and when I reboot does stuff.

Running VirtualBox I had an error message, so I tried as root and got the following


WARNING: The vboxdrv kernel module is not loaded. Either there is no module
         available for the current kernel ( or it failed to
         load. Reboot the computer, or insert the kernel module by executing

           '/sbin/modprobe vboxdrv' (as root)

         You will not be able to start VMs until this problem is fixed.
Qt WARNING: QGtkStyle cannot be used together with the GTK_Qt engine.
Qt WARNING: Qt: Session management error: None of the authentication protocols specified are supported


I ran /sbin/modprobe vboxdrv with no error...

when I run VirtualBox from commandline or from the icon I get an error screen


Failed to create the VirtualBox COM Object

The application will now terminate

Could not load the settings file '/home/yoram/.VirtualBox/VirtualBox.xml'.

Cannot convert settings from version '1.7-linux'.

The source version is not supported.

Result Code:





IVirtualBox {339abca2-f47a-4302-87f5-7bc324e6bbde}


Same thing with or without root.

What's the deal?

The latter is http://download1.rpmfusion.org/free/fedora/updates/10/i386/VirtualBox-OSE-kmodsrc-2.1.4-4.fc10.i386.rpm
The former, I have no idea.

Have you tried simply "yum --enable-repo=* install
akmod-VirtualBox-OSE" ?? That should let Yum do all the depency
resolution for you...
