With the new kernel version 2.6.27-rc7, VirtualBox's vboxdrv module (version 2.0.2) fails to load, even though it builds fine. When 'modprobe vboxdrv' is issued, the following error is printed in dmesg:

vboxdrv: disagrees about version of symbol struct_module

If you still have such problems please search the forums. Your error message usually means that your kernel headers and your current running kernel do not match. Also, if you are on Mandriva it is strongly suggested to install dkms.
