installation issue on RHEL5.3

Component: installer Version: VirtualBox 2.2.4
Keywords: Cc:
Guest type: other Host type: Linux


While installing 2.2.4 & 3.0.0 beta on RHEL5.3 (out of the box) it says no kernel module found for the kernel, then compiles (claims successfully), then writes /etc/rc.d/init.d/vboxdrv, then loads vboxdrv and reboots infinitely. Access to the host can be provided upon request.

 vbox:  VirtualBox-2.2.4_47978_rhel5-1.i386.rpm
 vbox:  VirtualBox-3.0.0_BETA1_48728_rhel5-1.i386.rpm
 host:  RHEL5.3
 guest: any
 h/w:   # cat /proc/cpuinfo | grep name

$ cat /etc/redhat-release
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server release 5.3 Beta (Tikanga)

Just installed VirtualBox 3.0.0 successfully on CentOS 5.3 with 2.6.18-128.1.10.el5 x86_64. Note that you should not use a Xen-enabled kernel for your host as VirtualBox and Xen cannot co-exist.

RHEL5.3 comes with Xen-enabled kernel by default. Kernel re-installation has resolved the problem. Probably VBox installer should warn about the case.

This looks like a duplicate of bug #2383 and bug #4413
