Can not install on Debian

Postby TJ » 15. Aug 2012, 20:44

Hello!

Since the new verson I can not install Virtualbox on Debian. I installed DKMS, the suggested packages and linux headers:

Code: Select all   Expand viewCollapse view
dpkg -l | grep 3.4.6
ii  linux-headers-3.4.6                  1.0                                i386         Header files related to Linux kernel, specifically,
ii  linux-image-3.4.6                    1.0                                i386         Linux kernel binary image for version 3.4.6


I got the next error:

Code: Select all   Expand viewCollapse view
vboxdrv: Found 4 processor cores.

Where did your VirtualBox come from (debian repo or virtualbox.org) and what is the version?

Version 4.1.18 should work at least through 3.5-rc1

What is the full name of the download?
When you say you installed packages, what were they?

Strange. Log says it is installed. Have you tried to reboot the host?
Did you add your <user name> to the vboxusers group?

Also post the results of uname -a

This isn't nested is it?
I mean the host is on metal, not another virtualizer.

This is my simple desktop computer, no other virtual machine. I would like to simply run on my comp VBox.

For years I could upgrade to newer versions without problem, and now olders (4.1.14) do not work too.

I don't see a reason why it should not work, at least from what I see.

I would try to purge the install and reboot then install again. There must be something that is corrupting the install.
Your guest/s should remain intact but I always suggest backing up first as you should be backing up regularly anyway.
Watch carefully for any error/s on install and post exact errors if you see any.
Worst case you go back to the previous version and post a ticket at bugtracker

I purged many times:

Code: Select all   Expand viewCollapse view
apt-get --purge remove virtualbox-4.1


I got some strange messages. Maybe it means something.

Code: Select all   Expand viewCollapse view
incorrect gamma=(0/100000)
incorrect gamma=(0/100000)
incorrect gamma=(0/100000)
incorrect gamma=(0/100000)


If I remember well, I tried to install a 4.0 version, but it was the same error after these. Besides before this upgrade, I did not have to install linux-headers and dkms to use older versions of VBox.

I really don't like what I am seeing and hearing.
First linux-headers have always been a requirement because you need them to build the VBox mods. It may have been installed and you didn't know it if you installed using a deb file.
dkms is only needed to keep the headers and the external mod built when your kernel gets upgraded.

What did you use to install VirtualBox? dpkg, gdebi. Etc.?

I always used dpkg.
It is very annoying, because I have some imoprtant data in my VBox machine.
