VB 6.0.10 not working on Linux kernel 5.2.X (F30)

Postby bgix » 16. Aug 2019, 19:43

The Fedora-30 distribution of Linux has upreved the kernel to 5.2.7 (and beyond) and I can no longer get VirtualBox 6.0.10 to work.
WARNING: The vboxdrv kernel module is not loaded. Either there is no module
available for the current kernel (5.2.7-200.fc30.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.

When running vboxconfig:
% sudo /sbin/vboxconfig
vboxdrv.sh: Stopping VirtualBox services.
vboxdrv.sh: Starting VirtualBox services.
vboxdrv.sh: You must sign these kernel modules before using VirtualBox:
vboxdrv vboxnetflt vboxnetadp vboxpci
See the documenatation for your Linux distribution..

I have tried various methods of "Signing" these modules, but I am not sure if I just don't have the permissions to do so, or what.

Has anyone else seen this yet? Can you point me towards a primer for this?

Similar issue, I'm also on Fedora 30 with Secure Boot (I have dual boot installation with Win10). I have the same outcome:
Code: Select all   Expand viewCollapse view
root@localhost: /lib/modules # /sbin/vboxconfig
vboxdrv.sh: Stopping VirtualBox services.
vboxdrv.sh: Starting VirtualBox services.
vboxdrv.sh: You must sign these kernel modules before using VirtualBox:
  vboxdrv vboxnetflt vboxnetadp vboxpci
See the documenatation for your Linux distribution..

I think I know how to sign modules with keys as I've done it with Centos7, however, in this case with Fedora 30, I can't find the modules!
Code: Select all   Expand viewCollapse view
root@localhost: /lib/modules # find . -name "*vbox*"
./5.2.8-200.fc30.x86_64/kernel/drivers/virt/vboxguest
./5.2.8-200.fc30.x86_64/kernel/drivers/virt/vboxguest/vboxguest.ko.xz
./5.2.8-200.fc30.x86_64/kernel/drivers/gpu/drm/vboxvideo
./5.2.8-200.fc30.x86_64/kernel/drivers/gpu/drm/vboxvideo/vboxvideo.ko.xz
./5.0.9-301.fc30.x86_64/kernel/drivers/virt/vboxguest
./5.0.9-301.fc30.x86_64/kernel/drivers/virt/vboxguest/vboxguest.ko.xz
./5.0.9-301.fc30.x86_64/kernel/drivers/staging/vboxvideo
./5.0.9-301.fc30.x86_64/kernel/drivers/staging/vboxvideo/vboxvideo.ko.xz
./5.2.9-200.fc30.x86_64/kernel/drivers/virt/vboxguest
./5.2.9-200.fc30.x86_64/kernel/drivers/virt/vboxguest/vboxguest.ko.xz
./5.2.9-200.fc30.x86_64/kernel/drivers/gpu/drm/vboxvideo
./5.2.9-200.fc30.x86_64/kernel/drivers/gpu/drm/vboxvideo/vboxvideo.ko.xz
root@localhost: /lib/modules #
root@localhost: /lib/modules #
root@localhost: /lib/modules #
root@localhost: /lib/modules # modinfo vboxdrv
modinfo: ERROR: Module vboxdrv not found.

Am I missing something? I can't find them! might be worth noticing that the rpm name is
Code: Select all   Expand viewCollapse view
VirtualBox-6.0-6.0.10_132072_fedora29-1.x86_64

- that is - fedora29 not fedora30
