Just to inform that I found that the driver for Virtual Box (non-ose, V.3.012) does not compile with recently installed Kernel 2.6.32-rc8.dmz.2-liquorix-amd64 #1.

Error in the log is:
:: Code ::

The sugested make oldconfig && make prepare seem not to work as some folder/files seem to be missed.

Mine have been building without failure for quite some time, are you sure you have the headers installed?

Here's some output straight from my terminal.

DKMS builds the modules on every new kernel install so it had to remove mine first - otherwise nothing appears to be wrong.

Are you using the OSE of virtualbox?

hmm, it worked with your last kernel before (2.6.32-rc6.dmz1 I believe).
Then with the upgrade to -dmz2 i didn't. I will into that aggain as there had been problems on my machine at installing this kernel and headers. But as far as I can see/say all looks ok.

I use the non-ose-versio.

Now I am pretty puzzled.

Just tried it again a minute ago and it worked like a charme!
No idea what really could have caused it, exept
for some startup problems my box has since it getting colder here.

Maybe my machine needs a pre-christmas cleanup/-check.

Thanks and regards

Sorry to resuscitate this thread but I'm having the same problem with 2.6.35-rc6.dmz.2-liquorix-amd64. I also had it with 2.6.34. My error message looks pretty much like the one on the first post. During install, I saw this:
:: Code ::
dkms: running auto installation service for kernel 2.6.35-rc6.dmz.2-liquorix-amd64:
      vboxnetflt (3.1.2)...failed.
      vboxdrv (3.1.2)...failed.
      vboxnetadp (3.1.2)...failed.





I'm running Squeeze.

BTW, other than Vbox, this kernel runs well.

Can you try again with VirtualBox 3.2?

Thank you for the suggestion. I dumped the proprietary version I had and reinstalled from the Debian Squeeze libraries. It now works. Thanks again.

Just to add the obvious, before saying a vbox doesn't work, make sure you have the latest vbox version. It's frequent that a new vbox version adds in current kernel support, or fixes other issues, so make sure you have it up to date.

svmi will also install vbox non ose direct from the Sun/Oracle download site.
