I just installed VirtualBox 3.2.8 on my Linux and when doing

/etc/init.d/vboxdrv setup

I get the follwoing error in my

I done

Run 'make oldconfig && make prepare' on kernel src to fix it

as suggested but it did not help.

What a surprise. Linux 2.6.36 rc1 was released at 2010/08/16, VirtualBox 3.2.8 was released at 2010/08/05. The fix will be available with the next maintenance release.
