Issue resolved. Maybe because of v2 of kernel 4.14

Tharbad commented on 2017-11-22 20:01


:: virtualbox-ck-guest-modules: installing linux-ck-ivybridge (4.14.1-1) breaks dependency 'linux-ck<4.14'
:: virtualbox-ck-host-modules: installing linux-ck-ivybridge (4.14.1-1) breaks dependency 'linux-ck<4.14'

Edit: I've uninstalled and then tried to reinstall. Now getting:
==> Starting build()...
-> Host modules
Error! Could not find module source directory.
Directory: /usr/src/vboxhost-5.2.0_OSE does not exist.
==> ERROR: A failure occurred in build().
==> ERROR: Makepkg was unable to build virtualbox-ck-modules.

@graysky, just a question. May I know the purpose of build function in your PKGBUILD? I thought it was already built by just installing dkms package

j1simon - I'm not sure how to deal with that... the problem is that something changed in the build process for this that breaks my repo-ck building. I announced this in the repo-ck thread and that I can no longer provide these as a result.

To build yourself, you will have to modify the makedepends and _extramodules to match your kernel package. In your case skylake.

makedepends=('linux-ck-headers' "virtualbox-host-dkms>=$pkgver" "virtualbox-guest-dkms>=$pkgver" 'dkms')

makedepends=('linux-ck-skylake-headers' "virtualbox-host-dkms>=$pkgver" "virtualbox-guest-dkms>=$pkgver" 'dkms')

In repo-ck there isn't any virtualbox module now.
@graysky have you deleted them?

tkh23 commented on 2017-10-27 13:12

Tharbad, pacman -Rdd virtualbox-ck-host-modules-ivybridge first, then install this package.

macieks commented on 2017-10-26 18:34

Should this package work with linux-ck-core2 ?

To extend @autonymous's error - the error with loading the modules is the same as was in this bug report on official kernel while ago.

autonymous commented on 2017-02-19 23:43

Getting an error on a couple of modules in the latest repo pkgs:

Failed to insert 'vboxnetadp': Invalid argument
Failed to insert 'vboxnetflt': Invalid argument

(Note: I'm NOT using DKMS or the official pkgs, only the repo-provided ones with the latest ivybridge kernel.)
