Can't load vboxvfs on SLES11@x86_64

"modprobe vboxvfs" gives this message:

"FATAL: Error inserting vboxvfs (/lib/modules/ Protocol error"

Host: openSUSE 11.2@x86_64 Guest: SLES 11@x86_64

I assume that SLES11 prevents the vboxadd+vboxvfs modules from being loaded. Please edit /etc/modprobe.d/unsupported-modules and change the entry to allow_unsupported_modules 1, then restart your guest.

Yes, that's a "new feature". Apparently the error was due to a unfinished kernel update, or it was fixed by the update, i'm not sure.

Please close the ticket, thanks a lot.

Note that the guest additions of the next maintenance release will contain a fix for this SLES11 feature.
