    Re: VirtualBox error: Kernel driver not installed (rc=-1908)

    here's what has worked for me.. after reading the full message, and paying attention to the fact that it's saying something about kernel headers... drum roll please

    I go to software center, enter "kernel headers". I remember something about "generic" from the last time I had this same issue, so I install the linux-headers-3.5.18-generic, then restart my machine. VOILA.

    SO I guess VirtualBox needs the "generic headers" for whatever kernel you're running. Any time the kernel updates (pay attention to the updates window), you gotta re-install the headers and restart. Worked for me.

    Error! Bad return status for module build on kernel: 3.2.6 (x86_64) Consult the make.log in the build directory /var/lib/dkms/virtualbox-ose/3.1.6/build/ for more information. dpkg: error processing virtualbox-ose-dkms (--configure): subprocess installed post-installation script returned error exit status 10 Errors were encountered while processing: virtualbox-ose-dkms is a persistent error. The same line occurs during: aptitude install synaptic or other install commands. I was still able to start synaptic and then selected all of the upgrades. One of them was virtualbox-ose-dkms.

    At the end of my Synaptic applications upgrade these are the results: "E: virtualbox-ose-dkms: subprocess installed post-installation script returned error exit status 10" This error repeats throughout the upgrades and just following the python compatibility check. I'm at a loss. Sorry for not generating the upgrade script report.

    Re: VirtualBox error: Kernel driver not installed (rc=-1908)

    Thats helped for me:
    aptitude purge virtualbox

    Code:
    echo "deb http://download.virtualbox.org/virtualbox/debian $(uname -r) contrib" | sudo tee -a /etc/apt/sources.list 
    wget -q http://download.virtualbox.org/virtualbox/debian/oracle_vbox.asc -O- | sudo apt-key add - 
    sudo apt-get update
    
    sudo apt-get install linux-headers
    sudo aptitude install virtualbox-4.2

    I downloaded the .deb file from https://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/Linux_Downloads , installed it with gdebi and I have had brighter days since then!

    Re: VirtualBox error: Kernel driver not installed (rc=-1908)

    It should be either:

    Code:
    linux-headers-generic
    OR

    Code:
    linux-headers-server
    Depending if you have the server or desktop version of Ubuntu installed.
