{SOLVED} Problem with Virtualbox


Have a fully up-to-date Rolling install, just trying to use Virtualbox for the first time. Thought I installed it properly from pacman, but probably left something out.

Everything worked normally until I tried to “start” the virtual machine to install the operating system. I got these two messages.


When I tried to follow the directions, the following was the result.


Obviously, I must have done something wrong. Any help would be greatly appreciated.



You don’t need the DKMS package or the kernel headers package.
Here is what you need to do:

First remove the dkms package:

sudo pacman -R virtualbox-host-dkms

Then install the proper virtualbox-host-modules package for your kernel:

sudo paman -S linux316-virtualbox-host-modules


Thank you! I may have upgraded the kernel after I installed VB. It got by the error, I’ll try installing the OS tomorrow.
