    Question Ubuntu 12.10 unable to find sources of your current kernel

    Doing something wrong?
    New fresh install of ubuntu 12.10 64x.
    Did all updates... including new kernel 3.5.0-18-generic
    Also installed
    sudo apt-get install dkms

    download the virtualbox for ubuntu 12.10 64x and extension pack
    created a win7 guest machine
    and kabummmmm

    Code:
        Kernel driver not installed (rc=-1908)
    
        The VirtualBox Linux kernel driver (vboxdrv) is either not loaded or there is a permission problem with /dev/vboxdrv. Please reinstall the kernel module by executing
    
        '/etc/init.d/vboxdrv setup'
    
        as root. If it is available in your distribution, you should install the DKMS package first. This package keeps track of Linux kernel changes and recompiles the vboxdrv kernel module if necessary.

    running sudo /etc/init.d/vboxdrv setup
    log file:

    Code:
    Uninstalling modules from DKMS
        removing old DKMS module vboxhost version 4.2.4
    
        ------------------------------
        Deleting module version: 4.2.4
        completely from the DKMS tree.
        ------------------------------
        Done.
        Attempting to install using DKMS
    
        Creating symlink /var/lib/dkms/vboxhost/4.2.4/source ->
        /usr/src/vboxhost-4.2.4
    
        DKMS: add completed.
        Failed to install using DKMS, attempting to install without
        Makefile:181: *** Error: unable to find the sources of your current Linux kernel. Specify KERN_DIR=<directory> and run Make again. Stop.
    Anyone with this problem?
