• Failed to load modules


    Hi, I think after updating to 4.4.5 I can’t load virtualbox modules for some reason. I noticed systemd-modules-load.service was failing on boot, I looked into it, and it wouldn’t load the modules vboxdrv, vboxnetadp and vboxnetflt in /etc/modules-load.d/virtualbox.conf.

    When I do
    $ modprobe vboxdrv
    I get
    modprobe: ERROR: could not insert 'vboxdrv': Exec format error

    But
    $ modinfo vboxdrv
    returns

    filename:       /lib/modules/4.4.5-1-ARCH/extramodules/vboxdrv.ko.gz
    version:        5.0.14_OSE (0x00240000)
    license:        GPL
    description:    Oracle VM VirtualBox Support Driver
    author:         Oracle Corporation
    srcversion:     0A483BDD8DF92AD10E8C986
    depends:        
    vermagic:       4.4.3-1-ARCH SMP preempt mod_unload modversions 
    parm:           force_async_tsc:force the asynchronous TSC mode (int)
    

    Any ideas? AFAIK I have the required packages installed, it was working yesterday.

    $ uname -a
    Linux leech 4.4.5-1-ARCH #1 SMP PREEMPT Thu Mar 10 07:38:19 CET 2016 x86_64 GNU/Linux
    

    Thanks!

  • Installed the headers, rebuild some packages, and now it works! Thanks anarch!
    linux-headers should be a dependency now shouldn’t it?

    That’s fixed with version 5.0.16 of VirtualBox if I am reading the commit correctly:

    https://projects.archlinux.org/svntogit/community.git/commit/trunk?h=packages/virtualbox&id=b79afc2b72b306753b75ec600e1757e77735abf9

    See this line:

    depends=(‘dkms’ ‘gcc’ ‘make’ ‘linux-headers’)
