When installing virtualbox on Ubuntu I have a small annoyance.
If I install packages in this order:
1. new kernel
with no reboot after installing the new kernel.
Then virtualbox will use the current kernel (uname -r) to install the
kernel modules for, not the newly installed kernel.
It seems that the virtualbox package maintaned by ubuntu/debian does not
have this problem. The reason is that the use dh_dkms:
when installing the dkms modules. dh_dkms triggers:
which searches for all installed kernels and installs the dkms modules for
Can someone please fix this? Or will you accept a patch to fix this problem?
