Description

vboxdrv module is not compiling in Linux kernel version 2.6.26.* The recent VirtualBox(1.6.4) is supposed to compile under 2.6.26.* kernels. But it is still not doing so.

Here is the log in /var/log/vbox-install.log --- make KBUILD_VERBOSE=1 -C /lib/modules/2.6.26.2/build SUBDIRS=/tmp/vbox.3 SRCROOT=/tmp/vbox.3 modules make[1]: Entering directory `/stuff/linux-2.6.26'

Please check if the file /lib/modules/2.6.26.2/build/include/linux/bounds.h exists in your installation.

comment:2 Changed 11 years ago by soumyadip

There is no bounds.h in /lib/modules/2.6.26.2/build/include/linux/ directory. BTW, I am using the vanilla kernel source.

The file exists here with the following content:

#ifndef __LINUX_BOUNDS_H__
#define __LINUX_BOUNDS_H__
/*
 * DO NOT MODIFY.
 *
 * This file was generated by Kbuild
 *
 */

#define NR_PAGEFLAGS 19 /* __NR_PAGEFLAGS       # */
#define MAX_NR_ZONES 4 /* __MAX_NR_ZONES        # */

#endif

So make sure you executed

make prepare

in you Linux kernel before you will be able to start external modules.
