"Running VirtualBox in a Xen environment is not supported" on "3.2.0-31-generic"

Reported by: knightsamar Owned by:
Component: other Version: VirtualBox 4.2.18
Keywords: xen, generic kernel, kernel module Cc:
Guest type: all Host type: Linux


My uname -a output is

Linux 3.2.0-31-generic #50-Ubuntu SMP Fri Sep 7 16:16:45 UTC 2012 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

And when I do sudo /etc/init.d/vboxdrv setup the output is:

 * Stopping VirtualBox kernel modules                                                                                  [ OK ]

 * Recompiling VirtualBox kernel modules                                                                               [ OK ] 
 * Starting VirtualBox kernel modules                                                                                         
 * Running VirtualBox in a Xen environment is not supported

But, running modprobe vboxdrv seems to fix the problem as as lsmod lists the module and I can use VirtualBox.

Resolution: wontfix
Status: newclosed

So what is the bug report about? That VirtualBox cannot run in a Xen environment as mentioned by the installer? This support is not planned.
