Hi Luca,

VirtualBox looks for the headers in
/lib/modules/`uname -r`/build/include

where `uname -r` is obviously your kernel version number.

/lib/modules/`uname -r`/build/build is just a softlink to kernel
sources. In some systems that softlink is created only during kernel
build process, this explains Maat's problem and solution.

If this does not exists, it tries /usr/src/linux/include

If this directory doesn't exists too, it complains with the message
you saw and bails out, so check you have everything in place.

Btw. VirtualBox installer keeps datiled log on what's going on in
/var/log/vbox-install.log - this may help you in case of further
