    1. Oh, found a solution. I found this command in a book: yum install make automake autoconf gcc kernel-devel dkms

      Worked fine after that :)

    2. Great site. I have same issue : unable to run vboxdrv setup using dkms after upgrading kernel (2.6.41.1-1.fc15.x86_64). I use the symbolik link tip (ln -s /usr/src/kernels/`uname -r`/include/linux/amd-iommu.h /usr/src/kernels/`uname -r`/arch/x86/include/asm/amd_iommu.h) and it’s run.
      A suggestion : is it possible to begin with the most recent comments first ?

      • Hi Berni,

        Nice to hear that you got it working… :)

        Good suggestion, it is possible yes, but I have to also think some other changes too, like “Leave a Comment” form position/redesign and maybe paging for comments… :)

    7. HI
      I’m not regular user of fedora..
      but now i want to use PuTTY with fedora-16 installed on my virtual box..

      when i type ifconfig it shows me lo and p2p1 connection
      it shows me inet add instead of ip adress

      when i try to insert that address in puTTY
      it gives me Timeout error

      As suggested i tried many ways like disabling firewall..

      But no use..

      Please help me out with this.. M working on big project and this shit happened.. Please suggest.. What to do?

      • Hi chaitanya,

        First check your VirtualBox network card configuration? You should get ip for your interface.

        Next check your Fedora 16 network configuration, is it using DHCP or static network settings?

    8. RTR3Init failed with rc=-1912 (rc=-1912)

      The VirtualBox kernel modules do not match this version of VirtualBox. The installation of VirtualBox was apparently not successful. Executing

      ‘/etc/init.d/vboxdrv setup’

      may correct this. Make sure that you do not mix the OSE version and the PUEL version of VirtualBox.

      how to remove this error please help.
      thanx

      • Hi Kunal,

        Could you post output of following command:

        
        rpm -qa gcc make patch libgomp glibc-headers glibc-devel kernel-headers kernel-devel dkms VirtualBox-4.1 |sort
        

        Did you tried to run?

        
        /etc/init.d/vboxdrv setup

    9. usermod -a -G vboxusers user_name

      returns

      usermod: user ‘user_name’ does not exist

      On a fresh Fedora 16 install. Thanks!

      • Hi James,

        You should use real user name (like your own user name):

        
        usermod -a -G vboxusers james

    10. I confirm successful installation and it works fine.
      Just aside note that needed packages are kernel-devel(obligatory) and dmks(optional – works without this, but required for recompiling VB modules along side with the linux kernel, other way it should be done manually with ‘service vboxdrv setup’).

      yum install kernel-devel
      yum install dmks

      Salutations!

      • To correct myself : dkms

        yum install dkms

        sorry :)

        Reply
        • Hi Igor,

          Actually both kernel-devel and dkms are on dependency packages list on step 4. Full list is binutils gcc make patch libgomp glibc-headers glibc-devel kernel-headers kernel-devel dkms or PAE kernel users yum install binutils gcc make patch libgomp glibc-headers glibc-devel kernel-headers kernel-PAE-devel dkms… :)

    11. I am having a problem installing Virtualbox under Fedora 14 (Amahi). I have followed every step in your guide but I cannot manage to rebuild kernel modules. Whenever I try to execute

      /etc/init.d/vboxdrv setup

      I have tried your troubleshooting guide as well but I keep getting the following error message:

      [[email protected] ~]# KERN_DIR=/usr/src/kernels/`uname -r`

    12. I don’t know what was wrong. I tried several of the tips listed above, rebooted the system and voila… it worked! I manage to run /etc/init.d/vboxdrv setup without errors. I installed my first virtual machine in Fedora 14/Amahi. I now have an up and running virtual machine with Windows 7 x64 running inside Fedora 14/Amahi. This is amazing stuff! Thank you very much.

    13. The basic install worked for me. I ended up here and realized I had forgotten to do a yum install gcc. All good now!

    14. This has worked perfectly. Many thanks!

    15. Hi, I have installed the virtualbox and it works fine. But I’m trying to create a Fedora VM inside it.

      Fedora Lives start normally (In fallback mode), but when I try to install on disk I get an error at the end and I can’t finish the installation.

      It don’t give me any kind of report, just an error.

      Some one have this issue or know how to fix it?

      Thanks

      • Hi Rafael,

        Could you tell your virtual machine specs (Fedora version, RAM…)?

        So you get error without any error message? Could you even take screenshot of this situation?

        Or you can start anaconda installer from command line with following command:

        
        /usr/bin/liveinst
        

        Do you see any error messages then?

            • Your error message is due to too small root partition. This is actually bug and you can find full bug report here. Normally 2330 MB should be enough but some reason it needs over 4016 MB.

              You can try to create over 4016 MB root partition (example 4500 MB) and try to install it again…do you got it working then?

              • Hey JR.

                Really thanks, you have solved my problem. I have never thinked that the root disk size could be the reason for my problem.

                You’re a good expert and a patient guy.

                Thanks again
