    3. Hello everybody!!

      Point# 4 needs a little update:

      “Not Found

      The requested URL /pub/epel/7/x86_64/e/epel-release-7-5.noarch.rpm was not found on this server.

      RPM has updated to “epel-release-7-6.noarch.rpm”… 7-5 is no longer available.

      Cheers and keep up the fine job!!

      • Hi Shark3,

        Could you post output of following commands:

        
        uname -a
        
        rpm -qa VirtualBox\*
         
        ls /usr/lib/virtualbox/vboxdrv.sh -la

      • Centos/Fedora/Red Hat… Suggest you run — updatedb to update the locate package.

        [root@vb01-cnc tmp]# locate vboxdrv.sh
        /usr/lib/virtualbox/vboxdrv.sh

        All Unix based systems will support find.

        [root@vb01-cnc tmp]# find / -name vboxdrv.sh
        /usr/lib/virtualbox/vboxdrv.sh

    5. This guide was beautiful but when I finally got Virtualbox going it is running a much older version of my vdi file than what I’d had. Is there a way to get this back? Or do I need to have made a snapshot beforehand? Thank you!

    6. Hi I am using RHEL 6.6 ,even after a reboot the kernel does not update to the latest. What can be done to fix the same?

      “`
      [royr016@nckmvdsla11793 ~]$ rpm -qa kernel |sort -V |tail -n 1
      kernel-2.6.32-642.el6.x86_64
      [royr016@nckmvdsla11793 ~]$ uname -r
      2.6.32-504.16.2.el6.x86_64
      “`

    7. Hi, thanks much for posting these instructions, which worked beautifully before. However, I just updated my kernel to 4.7.0-0.rc1.git4.2.fc25.x86_64 and now the vbox module compile fails with

      /tmp/vbox.1/linux/VBoxNetAdp-linux.c: In function ‘vboxNetAdpLinuxXmit’:
      /tmp/vbox.1/linux/VBoxNetAdp-linux.c:156:12: error: ‘struct net_device’ has no member named ‘trans_start’
      pNetDev->trans_start = jiffies;

      any ideas? Thanks much in advance!

    8. Hello,

      When using Fedora 23, after installing kernel VirtualBox (dnf install …) you need to restart the modules:

      systemctl restart systemd-modules-load.service

      • Hi Francis,

        Looks like that you have VirtualBox installed not VirtualBox-5.0.

        Could you post output of following command:

        
        dnf list installed |grep -i virtualbox

    11. Muchas gracias amigo por tu ayuda. Me sirvió muchísimo y ya pude instalar virtualbox.

      Ofreces la información muy clara y concisa.

    12. Hi,
      I am having problems, I had a problem loading the modules as per others and just removed “VirtualBox” that removed “VirtualBox.x86_64 5.0.16-3.fc23”.
      If I try “/usr/lib/virtualbox/vboxdrv.sh setup” I get:
      No package VirtualBox-5.0 available.
      Error: Unable to find a match.
      Updated Fedora23 OK and everything else was OK but no /usr/lib/virtualbox/ so either something has changed or I am doing something silly!
      Which is it please!?
      Thanks

      • Hi Peter H,

        Did you installed VirtualBox-5.0 package from Oracle’s repo, as described on this guide?

        Reply
    13. Please not that if you are on UEFI or SecureBoot or whatever, you need to sign the modules with a key and enable this key in UEFI.

      • Hi. I’m feeling pretty lost in the process. Looks like SELinux is preventing vboxdrv.sh script from being able to write some files. Could it be related to lack of modules signing on my machine?

    14. Great site man! Muchas gracias.

    15. Note that as of VirtualBox 5.1.2 (at least on Fedora 24) you also need the package qt5-qtx11extras

      I got the following error after updating:

      VirtualBox: supR3HardenedMainGetTrustedMain: dlopen(“/usr/lib/virtualbox/VirtualBox.so”,) failed: libQt5X11Extras.so.5: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

      Fixed by issuing:

      sudo dnf install qt5-qtx11extras
