    Default 2.6.30.5 Virtualization

    Has anyone managed to install either VMware Server and/or Virtualbox with this new kernel ?

    Thanks

    seems that we have the same issue.

    After the kernel upgrade my virtualbox stopped working. I m having some issues cause i do not have the latest kernel headers as well....still looking into it for a solution

    I just managed to get it working with the help of this thread
    hxxp://forums.remote-exploit.org/backtrack-4-pre-final/26319-how-build-kernel-headers-new-kernel.html

    To sum it up i did:

    #apt-get install linux-source-2.6.30.5
    Go to /usr/scr/ dir and uncompress the new source file.
    Then inside the /usr/src/linux-source-2.6.30.5 dir copy a working config
    #cp /boot/config-$(uname -r) ./.config
    Create the new headers
    #make-kpkg kernel_headers
    Install the deb file (/usr/src/)
    #dpkg -i linux-headers-2.6.30.5_2.6.30.5-10.00.Custom_i386.deb
    Delete the existing symlink and create a new one
    #ln -s linux-source-2.6.30.5/ linux
    Vbox will still fail cause of the missing Module.symvers file in the new kernel source dir. Then inside the /usr/src/linux-source-2.6.30.5 type make to compile the kernel. Wait approx an hour .........
    #/etc/init.d/vboxdrv setup

    Bingo!

    =ZŁY$=,

    Thanx so much. Been struggling with this, for a good 2 days.

    I run BackTrack 4 (Native) on 2 machines, both of which must host at least one VM, and this has caused my hair to prematurely gray...
