Guest additions broken with debian squeeze amd64 kernel
|Reported by:||plugwash||Owned by:|
I am running virtualbox 3.2.8 with a debian squeeze amd64 system (originally installed as lenny and then upgraded) as a guest. The host is windows XP proffesional x64 edition (I don't think the host is relavent to this bug though)
When I boot with the current squeeze kernel (2.6.32-5-amd64) and attempt to install the guest additions I get a message that "modprobe vboxguest" failed. Running modprobe vboxguest manually gives an error about "invalid module format".
If I reboot with the lenny kernel (2.6.26-2-amd64) and install the guest additions the driver installs fine so it seems this must be something that changed in the kernel between lenny and squeeze.
