    • Virtualbox 5.1.8 and kernel 4.9 error

      Hello,

      There is a probleme with VirtualBox < 5.1.12 and the last kernel in backport (4.9), the DKMS modul can't be build.

      So we have to block the 4.9 kernel install, until the VirtualBox package be upgrade.

      Thanks

      I disagree. A lot of OMV users don't use virtualbox. Virtualbox users should just not install the 4.9 update or install it and boot to the 4.8 kernel.

      Uninstall the 4.9 kernel and then don't install it from the updates tab or use apt-mark hold.

      Either select it from the grub menu when booting or change the boot kernel in the omv-extras kernel tab.

      The plugin can't fix this. The virtualbox package in the Debian repos needs to be updated to 5.1.12 or newer.

      Uninstall the 4.9 kernel and then don't install it from the updates tab or use apt-mark hold.

      To disable 4.9 kernel are the following commands correct in order to remove it from the updates tab?

      Source Code

      1. apt-mark hold linux-image-4.9.0-0.bpo.1-amd64
      2. apt-mark hold linux-image-amd64
      3. apt-mark hold linux-compiler-gcc-4.9-x86
      (The third command is not necessarily required, but I think it is related to kernel 4.9)

      The plugin can't fix this. The virtualbox package in the Debian repos needs to be updated to 5.1.12 or newer.

      If I follow the following instruction found on VirtualBox site, I should get always the latest version, correct?

      Adding the following line to /etc/apt/sources.list:

      Source Code

      1. deb http://download.virtualbox.org/virtualbox/debian jessie contrib

      Nope. Don't add the virtualbox repos unless you want to use virtualbox without the plugin. The 3.x plugin only works with the Debian package (yes, they are very different).

      Nope. Already tried. Dependencies prevent it from installing.

    • Ahahahaha,

      Dependecy for openmediavault-virtualbox is linux-header-amd64, and this is a metapacket for header 4.9. So we can't remove it !

    • Hi all,

      Does anybody can build a backported package for virtualbox and virtualbox-dkms from debian sid version 5.1.14 ?
      I tried with this guide (wiki.debian.org/SimpleBackportCreation), but it failed for me.

    • I just uploaded virtualbox 5.1.14 packages (amd64 only) built on jessie. The kernel module compiles on the 4.9 kernel. Packages installed fine but I didn't do anymore testing though. Use at your own risk.

      hello.. I got the same problem, already upgraded to 4.9 - want to keep it like that.

      I downloaded the packages from the link above.

      and i installed them:
      dpkg -i *
      apt-get install -f
      dpkg -i *
      service virtualbox-web start

      great work!

    • I don't remember which ones but I think you would need virtualbox, virtualbox-dkms, and maybe virtualbox-source. It will tell you when you try to install.

      You didn't read my warning, did you? Packages installed fine but I didn't do anymore testing though. Use at your own risk. If you are that worried about doing something wrong, you shouldn't be using these packages...

      I don't know why I am posting these instructions because it always comes back to bite me in the ass when I make things easy...
      wget http://omv-extras.org/testing/virtualbox-dkms_5.1.14-dfsg-1_all.deb

      dpkg -i virtualbox_5.1.14-dfsg-1_amd64.deb virtualbox-dkms_5.1.14-dfsg-1_all.deb
      apt-get -f install

      ***EDIT*** - these packages are in the omv-extras repo now. No need to manually install them.
