VistualBox let me recompiling kernel driver when first time running after host os started

Reported by: wxwok Owned by:
Priority: major Component: host support
Version: VirtualBox 3.2.8 Keywords: kernel driver setup
Cc: Guest type: Windows
Host type: Linux


when run VirtualBox at first time of host os started, it report a error: "Failed to open a session for the virtual machine test. The virtual machine 'test' has terminated unexpectedly during startup with exit code 1.

Result Code: NS_ERROR_FAILURE (0x80004005) Component: Machine Interface: IMachine {6d9212cb-a5c0-48b7-bbc1-3fa2ba2ee6d2} "

and after 2 second, a message box popped up, the title is "VirtualBox - Error In suplibOsInit" Content is: "The VirtualBox Linux kernel driver (vboxdrv) is either not loaded or there is a permission problem with /dev/vboxdrv. Please reinstall the kernel module by executing

'/etc/init.d/vboxdrv setup'

as root. Users of Ubuntu, Fedora or Mandriva should install the DKMS package first. This package keeps track of Linux kernel changes and recompiles the vboxdrv kernel module if necessary."

If I recompile the driver, it will be no problem both the first running after compiling but also the 2,3,4, If I reboot my host os, the kernel driver must be compiled again.

So: Do you actually have DKMS installed?
