Description

Kernel: Linux my-desktop 2.6.15-55-386 OS: Ubuntu Dapper 6.06 32bits compiler: gcc 4.03 package: virtualbox-3.2_3.2.10-66523~Debian~etch_i386.deb

The compilation of kernel drivers is failing with the following error:

gcc -m32 -Wp,-MD,/tmp/vbox.0/.SUPDrv.o.d  -nostdinc -isystem /usr/lib/gcc/i486-linux-gnu/4.0.3/include -D__KERNEL__ -Iinclude  -include include/linux/autoconf.h -Wall -Wundef -Wstrict-prototypes -Wno-trigraphs -fno-strict-aliasing -fno-common -ffreestanding -fno-delete-null-pointer-checks -O2     -fomit-frame-pointer  -pipe -msoft-float -mpreferred-stack-boundary=2 -fno-unit-at-a-time -march=i486 -Iinclude/asm-i386/mach-default -Wdeclaration-after-statement -Wno-pointer-sign -I/lib/modules/2.6.15-55-386/build/include -I/tmp/vbox.0/ -I/tmp/vbox.0/include -I/tmp/vbox.0/r0drv/linux -I/tmp/vbox.0/vboxdrv/ -I/tmp/vbox.0/vboxdrv/include -I/tmp/vbox.0/vboxdrv/r0drv/linux -D__KERNEL__ -DMODULE -DRT_OS_LINUX -DIN_RING0 -DIN_RT_R0 -DIN_SUP_R0 -DVBOX -DRT_WITH_VBOX -DVBOX_WITH_HARDENING -DCONFIG_VBOXDRV_AS_MISC -DRT_ARCH_X86 -DVBOX_WITH_64_BITS_GUESTS   -DMODULE -DKBUILD_BASENAME=SUPDrv -DKBUILD_MODNAME=vboxdrv -c -o /tmp/vbox.0/.tmp_SUPDrv.o /tmp/vbox.0/SUPDrv.c

This can be fixed by editing /usr/share/virtualbox/src/vboxhost/vboxdrv/SUPDrv.c and moving the function bodies supdrvLdrLock and supdrvLdrUnlock before the declaration.

Is compiling with gcc 4.03 supported ?

No.  http://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/Linux%20build%20instructions says that gcc 4.0.x isn't supported at all with VirtualBox. The reason for this is that it is extremely buggy, and is known to generate incorrect code.

Use an earlier or later gcc version.
