You misunderstood the log files. Both log files show that the kernel modules are compiled successfully. The text ERROR: Kernel configuration is invalid. is only shown because the compilation is verbose. That means that all commands are printed regardless if they are executed or not.

After the installation was successful, there is no further command required. The command

/sbin/rcvboxdrv status

should tell you the following:

VirtualBox kernel modules (vboxdrv, vboxnetflt, vboxnetadp, vboxpci) are loaded.
