  • Linux Lite: 2.6 64bit

  • CPU: Intel i3-4130

  • MEMORY: 6Gb

Trying to use Virtualbox with kernel 4.2 but keep getting error: "No suitable module for running kernel found".


Anything we can do to troubleshoot this?

I tried both the one in the LL Repo and 5.0.8 for Ubuntu 15.10

In that case it is unlikely to work with the LL kernels we supply, they're built differently than the Ubuntu ones. You'll have to use the stock kernel that ships with LL. Cheers :)

Obviously I'm still learning...
I read that Virtualbox builds it's modules automatically on first install.
It needs to cater for all the variants of kernels.
If the kernel changes, it should re-build them, if dkms is installed.?

Not sure if this helps..??,
see section 2.3.2

maybe what I posted in other thread was wrong..??

I am running 5.0.8 with kernel 4.3 without issue. Perhaps you could remove everything VirtualBox related and start from scratch, and I mean everything.

@Jerry
Sorry, "Off Topic"..
What version of VBox is provided by Lite Software Centre.?
I have my pre Lite Software Centre version, the last update took it to 4.3.32
I think this was the last in the 4.x family.

@Wirezfree, whichever is in the Ubuntu repos at the time (see Synaptic).

Which of the numerous Virtualbox packages are you running? https://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/Linux_Downloads

This is useful info.

At this point I can't really remember whether I upgraded my kernel before installing Virtualbox or vice verse. This is what happens when you try fumbling in the dark. (I still remember reinstalling Win95 on an almost weekly basis)

All good fun though :)

So today I learned the importance of using apt-get purge when appropriate.

Working fine now :)

@Duckeenie

Did you do a full purge of 4.x, and then a new install of 5.0.8.?
Was this with with an updated kernel already on the Host.?

Which install method did you use to install 5.0.8
The one in the link I provided, or another.??

Thanks...
