    Kernel update 4.9.6.1 and virtulabox dependency error...


    Hello everyone…
    Newbie guy over here… :)

    I’m getting this error today and i’m not sure where else can i do this post… :( :( :(

    Starting full system upgrade...
    resolving dependencies...
    looking for conflicting packages...
    error: failed to prepare transaction (could not satisfy dependencies)
    :: virtualbox-host-modules-arch: installing linux (4.9.6-1) breaks dependency 'linux<4.9'
    

    Thank you so much for your time…!!!

    That package virtualbox-host-modules-arch needs kernel 4.8 or less. Have you tried to use virtualbox-host-dkms instead?

    Cheers!

    Uninstall virtualbox-host-modules-arch and install virtualbox-host-dkms

    Then you will be able to update the kernel.

    By the way, there are no stupid questions here! ;)

    @karasu I don’t know if this helps but I am running Kernel 4.9.6.1
    And after a recent fresh install I have Virtual-box 5.1.14 r112924 working by doing the following;
    First use add/remove to install Qt5-x11extras
    Then log in as root:

    # pacman -S linux-headers
    
    # pacman -S virtualbox virtualbox-guest-iso (Note; select - virtualbox-host-dkms)
    
    # pacman -S vde2 net-tools virtualbox-ext-vnc
    
    # modprobe vboxdrv 
    
    # nano /etc/modules-load.d/virtualbox.conf
    

    Paste the following into the new file and presss CTRL + X + Y to save and exit.

    vboxdrv
    vboxnetadp
    vboxnetflt
    vboxpci
    

    Now add vboxuser to vboxusers group

    # gpasswd -a yourname vboxusers
    

    Now install the extensions pack from the Virtualbox website.
