    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.

              i have the same problem and i have fedora 30
              i tried the last command like below
              # /usr/lib/virtualbox/vboxdrv.sh setup
              vboxdrv.sh: Stopping VirtualBox services.
              vboxdrv.sh: Starting VirtualBox services.
              vboxdrv.sh: Building VirtualBox kernel modules.
              This system is currently not set up to build kernel modules.
              Please install the Linux kernel “header” files matching the current kernel
              for adding new hardware support to the system.
              The distribution packages containing the headers are probably:
              kernel-devel kernel-devel-5.0.9-301.fc30.x86_64

    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

    13. It doesn’t work on fedora 30, because drivers must be signed.

      • Hi soho,

        It works, but you should disable secure boot from UEFI/BIOS.
