dkms autoinstall:
Error! Could not locate dkms.conf file.
File: does not exist.

@the9ull:
The package automatically registers itself with DKMS.

A simple "dkms autoinstall" probably would have sufficed.

The package warns for this during post_install:

cat <<EOF

==> Remember to add allowed users to the vboxusers group:
==> # gpasswd -a USERNAME vboxusers
==
==> To compile/load virtualbox modules automatically at startup you can add dkms in your DAEMONS
==
==> To build and install your modules run dkms autoinstall
EOF

(in contrast with my earlier comment, the package has always done this)

Hello,

with this package I had to build the kernel module myself, and no instuctions are provided by the isntall script.

I runned:

# cd /opt/VirtualBox/src/vboxhost/vboxdrv
# make && make install
# gpasswd -a USER vboxusers

I relogged and all worked.

pkgver=5.0.6
_build=103037

md5 9d67e2df72630dc2ac5983c7cdb1cf5f

Worked like a charm again.

I am currently on holiday, and it'll be another 2 weeks before I have access to my laptop / ssh key.

Let me know who I can make a (temporary) co maintainer to push this update.
