    4. Hello,
      After following the above steps for Fedora 29 got the following:
      ARNING: The vboxdrv kernel module is not loaded. Either there is no module
      available for the current kernel (4.19.15-300.fc29.x86_64) or it failed to
      load. Please recompile the kernel module and install it by

      sudo /sbin/vboxconfig

      You will not be able to start VMs until this problem is fixed.
      [[email protected] ~]$ sudo /sbin/vboxconfig
      vboxdrv.sh: Stopping VirtualBox services.
      vboxdrv.sh: Starting VirtualBox services.
      vboxdrv.sh: Building VirtualBox kernel modules.
      vboxdrv.sh: failed: modprobe vboxdrv failed. Please use ‘dmesg’ to find out why.

      There were problems setting up VirtualBox. To re-start the set-up process, run
      /sbin/vboxconfig
      as root.
      The results of uname -r and rpm -qa | grep -i kernel-devel have shown both are the same version.
      Please, help out to resolve this.
      Best,

      • Hello sean,

        Could you post output of following command:

        dnf list installed |grep -i virtualbox

        /sbin/vboxconfig is a wrong command, it should be /usr/lib/virtualbox/vboxdrv.sh setup.

        Reply
        • I’m having the same exact issue, and the output for dnf list installed |grep -i virtualbox is:
          VirtualBox-6.0.x86_64 6.0.4_128413_fedora29_1 @virtualbox
          virtualbox-guest-additions.x86_64 5.2.24-1.fc29 @updates

          any help would be greatly appreciated!

          • Hi JL,

            What problem you mean exactly? I don’t know why you are running /sbin/vboxconfig command? Right command is /usr/lib/virtualbox/vboxdrv.sh setup.

    5. I’ve followed the steps however as a Root i get the following:

      # /usr/lib/virtualbox/vboxdrv.sh setup
      vboxdrv.sh: Stopping VirtualBox services.
      vboxdrv.sh: Starting VirtualBox services.
      vboxdrv.sh: Building VirtualBox kernel modules.
      vboxdrv.sh: failed: modprobe vboxdrv failed. Please use ‘dmesg’ to find out why.

      Any idea?

      • Hi Carrol,

        Could you post output of dmesg command when you run /usr/lib/virtualbox/vboxdrv.sh setup?

        Reply
        • Do you need whole file? I tried dmesg | grep vbox but return nothing… if you need whole file let me know. Thanks!

      • Hello emma,

        Do you have working Internet connection? Or maybe Oracle’s site was down.

    9. On my Fedora 28, I had to export the KERN_VER instead of KERN_DIR.

      export KERN_VER=4.20.11-100.fc28.x86_64
