Reported by: oracnick Owned by:
Component: network/hostif Version: VirtualBox 4.3.26
Keywords: host-only, vboxnet0 Cc:
Guest type: Linux Host type: Linux

Description

the client VM has a host-only adapter (vboxnet0), which is working with kernel 3.9. But with kernel 4.0 the adapter vboxnet0 isn't available anymore and therefore the VM cannot start.

Can you also provide dmesg from the 4.0 kernel after the failed attempt to start the vm?

here is the error message when I try to create a new host-only network: Menu->File->Global settings...->network->host-only network

dmesg kernel 4.0.1

after re-compiling the kernel modules with - /etc/init.d/vboxdrv setup - the issue disappears. I was able to create vboxnet0 manually via the menu. (see comment 3)

Strange, I had the problem on two machines (laptop and desktop), both after switching the Linux 4.0 and both could be fixed now.

I have no idea, why the vboxnet0 disappears. However, it's working now. IMHO, bug report could be closed.

  • Status changed from new to closed
  • Resolution set to invalid

Yes, you were probably missing the modules. You should see

VBoxNetFlt: Successfully started.
VBoxNetAdp: Successfully started.

in your dmesg now - which is not in the dmesg you attached.
