Ticket #5025 (closed defect: fixed)
VERR_VM_DRIVER_VERSION_MISMATCH errors under kernel 2.6.31
|Reported by:||adrianb||Owned by:|
When starting up a VM on a host running kernel 2.6.31, the message "The VirtualBox kernel modules do not fit to this version of VirtualBox. The installation of VirtualBox was apparently not successful. Executing '/etc/init.d/vboxdrv setup' should fix that problem." is displayed.
VirtualBox on a dual core Intel laptop running 2.6.31 works without error. It fails on an AthlonXP desktop.
I've tried OSE versions of 3.0.4 and 3.0.6. They work on the laptop but not on the desktop.
dmesg on the desktop contains:
vboxdrv: Trying to deactivate the NMI watchdog permanently... vboxdrv: Successfully done. vboxdrv: Found 1 processor cores. vboxdrv: TSC mode is 'synchronous', kernel timer mode is 'normal'. vboxdrv: Successfully loaded version 3.0.6_OSE (interface 0x000e0000).
On the same desktop machine, VirtualBox works under kernel 18.104.22.168.
Attached is my desktop machine's 2.6.31 kernel configuration for anybody interested in trying to reproduce the problem.
