VirtualBox segfaults on Arch - kernel with vboxdrv loaded

Reported by: Romashka Owned by:
Priority: critical Component: other
Version: VirtualBox 1.5.2 Keywords: segfault vboxdrv kernel
Cc: Guest type: other

VirtualBox GUI works without vboxdrv module loaded.
But when vboxdrv module is loaded - VirtualBox cannot be started, it segfaults immediately.
After that the VirtualBox process cannot be killed.

Original reports:  #8851 and  #8879.
You can see all patches and config in our  CVS.

I'm quite sure that you just need to recompile the vboxdrv kernel module. Somehow they changed a kernel config option which makes the kernel module incompatible with the kernel. Please do

rmmod vboxdrv
/etc/init.d/vboxdrv setup

Weird. I could swear I did the rebuild (in fact, I even mentioned it in the changelog). virtualbox-modules package was updated 4 days ago, at must have new kernel (which was updated 13 days ago) at that time even though it was in Testing at that moment. /me shrugs Anyway, no excuses, sorry for bugspam. :-)

Forgot to add that the revuid indeed fixed the problem. Please close this report.
