VirtualBox fails

VirtualBox failed for the first time after a good run about two weeks ago. My MIB enabled ROSA is:

Code: Select all
user $ cat /etc/issue
ROSA Desktop Fresh R1 release 2012.1 for x86_64
Kernel 3.11.8-nrjQL-desktop-69rosa on a 4-processor x86_64 / \l


MIB's VirtualBox version:

Code: Select all
user $ rpm -qa |grep -i virtualbox |sort
dkms-virtualbox-4.2.18-69-mib2012.1.noarch
virtualbox-4.2.18-69-mib2012.1.x86_64
virtualbox-doc-4.2.18-2-rosa2012.1.noarch
virtualbox-guest-additions-4.2.18-69-mib2012.1.x86_64


The error message:

Code: Select all
user $ VirtualBox
WARNING: The vboxdrv kernel module is not loaded. Either there is no module
         available for the current kernel (3.11.8-nrjQL-desktop-69rosa) or it failed to
         load. Please recompile the kernel module and install it by

           sudo /etc/rc.d/init.d/virtualbox start

         You will not be able to start VMs until this problem is fixed.


I tried some diagnostics to no avail:

Code: Select all
root # lsmod |grep vbox
root # /etc/rc.d/init.d/virtualbox status
virtualbox kernel module è not loaded
root # /etc/rc.d/init.d/virtualbox start
Starting virtualbox (via systemctl):                                                                                                                  [   OK   ]
root # /etc/rc.d/init.d/virtualbox status
virtualbox kernel module è not loaded
root # lsmod |grep vbox
root #


Kernels tried: 3.10.17 3.10.19 and 3.11.8, all -nrjQL-desktop-69rosa flavored.

UPDATE: tried new kernel and virtualbox unsuccessfully -- see below.

Following up, it does work with kernel-nrj-desktop-3.10.9-70rosa, the last working one before I installed the non-working kernel-nrj-desktop-3.10.17-1rosa.

But then my webcam doesn't with this kernel.

Update: problem remains with new kernel and virtualbox:
Code: Select all
$ cat /etc/issue
ROSA Desktop Fresh R2 release 2012.1 for x86_64
Kernel 3.11.10-nrjQL-desktop-69rosa on a 4-processor x86_64 / \l
$ rpm -qa |grep virtualbox
virtualbox-doc-4.2.18-2-rosa2012.1.noarch
dkms-virtualbox-4.3.4-69-mib2012.1.noarch
virtualbox-4.3.4-69-mib2012.1.x86_64


The new error message is:
Code: Select all
$ VirtualBox                       
WARNING: The vboxdrv kernel module is not loaded. Either there is no module
         available for the current kernel (3.11.10-nrjQL-desktop-69rosa) or it failed to

It's still not working, though the error message has changed:
Code: Select all
$ VirtualBox
WARNING: The vboxdrv kernel module is not loaded. Either there is no module
         available for the current kernel (3.11.10-nrjQL-desktop-69rosa) or it failed to

It's still not working after latest kernel and VirtualBox upgrades:
Code: Select all
$ cat /etc/issue
ROSA Desktop Fresh R2 release 2012.1 for x86_64
Kernel 3.12.6-nrjQL-desktop-69rosa on a 4-processor x86_64 / \l

Code: Select all
$ rpm -qa |grep -i virtualbox |sort
dkms-virtualbox-4.3.6-69-mib2012.1.noarch
python-virtualbox-4.3.6-69-mib2012.1.x86_64
virtualbox-4.3.6-69-mib2012.1.x86_64
virtualbox-devel-4.3.6-69-mib2012.1.x86_64
virtualbox-doc-4.2.18-2-rosa2012.1.noarch
virtualbox-guest-additions-4.3.6-69-mib2012.1.x86_64                                                                                                                 

Something is really wrong somewhere...

Ok, we got some progress, it works now with the latest nrj kernel but not the latest nrjQL one:
Code: Select all
$ uname -a && rpm -q virtualbox
Linux mybox.mynet 3.12.7-nrj-desktop-1rosa #1 SMP PREEMPT Tue Jan 14 02:49:59 MSK 2014 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
virtualbox-4.3.6-69-mib2012.1.x86_64

Still miss that CFQ scheduler desktop speed in the nrjQL kernel!
