What's the configuration of your real box that you are trying the virtual box on.

Hello again,

This time it's with Virtualbox. I've installed Virtualbox 3.2.0 in my
Fedora. Whenever I want to start the box something like this is showing

Kernel driver not installed (rc=-1908)

The VirtualBox Linux kernel driver (vboxdrv) is either not loaded or
there is a permission problem with /dev/vboxdrv. Please reinstall the
kernel module by executing

'/etc/init.d/vboxdrv setup'

as root. Users of Ubuntu, Fedora or Mandriva should install the DKMS
package first. This package keeps track of Linux kernel changes and
recompiles the vboxdrv kernel module if necessary.

Then I've install "dkms" and this is happening:

[root@localhost Nirjhor]# /etc/init.d/vboxdrv setup
Stopping VirtualBox kernel module                          [  OK  ]
Recompiling VirtualBox kernel module                       [FAILED]
 (Look at /var/log/vbox-install.log to find out what went wrong)

Here's the output of /var/log/vbox-install.log :

Attempting to install using DKMS

Creating symlink /var/lib/dkms/vboxdrv/3.2.0/source ->

DKMS: add Completed.

Error! Your kernel source for kernel cannot be
found at

You can use the --kernelsourcedir option to tell DKMS where it's
Failed to install using DKMS, attempting to install without
Makefile:159: *** Error: unable to find the sources of your current
Linux kernel. Specify KERN_DIR=<directory> and run Make again.  Stop.

Any help?
