The vbox install log says: Makefile:88: * Error: unable to find the include directory for your current Linux kernel. Specify ERN_INCL=<directory> and run Make again.. Stop.As I am a newbee with Linux and Suse 10.2 I do not know what to do. The Version of Virtual Box I downloaded as rpm was for Suse 10.2, so shouldnt it know where that directory is? You can email me directly as well: artist56@… Thanks in Advance tom

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

Sounds to me like you haven't installed the include files for your linux kernel. Without it you can't compile the module. It's all explained in the manual. Please use the forums or mailinglists for such questions.
