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

    I am having the same problems. It can't find the vbox directory like those above. After I try the Linux headers as suggested, I get this error.:

    "Examining /etc/kernel/header_postinst.d.
    run-parts: executing /etc/kernel/header_postinst.d/dkms 3.5.0-24-generic /boot/vmlinuz-3.5.0-24-generic
    Error! Bad return status for module build on kernel: 3.5.0-24-generic (x86_64)
    Consult /var/lib/dkms/virtualbox/4.1.12/build/make.log for more information."

    Check the make.log for more info. It's likely something is broken.

    Can you tell me what is wrong? This is what I get:

    You could try purging and reinstalling virtualbox and seeing if the error message goes away.

    If the problem still persists, you might want to make a thread on virtualbox.org.

    I get same response. Does that output above give any clue as to what is going on or what I need to do?

    Purge the ose edition and install the version from virtualbox.org.
    https://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/Linux_Downloads

    4.1.12 was released in April of last year, so it's probably not compatibly with 3.5.x kernels.

    https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...x/+bug/1129474

    EDIT: It looks like there was a patch released via PPA for the version of vbox in the Precise repos, you can find it in comment 3 and 4:

    Many thanks Lin-Lin_224, I updated my Ubuntu 12.04 today and my Virtualbox stopped working, you are a life (well time) saver as I thought a re-install was going to be my only solution, but your info fixed the problem.

    Thanks again
