After upgrading to virtualbox 6.0.0 the previous modules (v5.2.2) won't be unloaded for some reason. Therefore you'll have to remove them manually so the new ones can be added:

sudo modprobe -r vboxvideo vboxpci vboxnetadp vboxnetflt vboxguest

sudo modprobe -r vboxdrv

sudo systemctl start systemd-modules-load.service

Now it should be working. If you, like me, had a machine running during that update and then sent it to suspend, you'll have to reboot it. It might be a good idea to suspend / poweroff all the VMs before updating (although I didn't have such problem with previous updates).

A simple and not complete script to update the modules: https://gitlab.com/shaygover/Docs/tree/master/Scripts/AUR

Package needs to be reinstalled after a kernel update. No idea why. Will investigate.

Please reinstall the package for kernel 4.18.

ck-ivybridge: Currently the package will fail to build due to missing file in /usr/lib/modules/extramodules-4.17-ck-ivybridge. I reported this. If it happens in other versions please comment.

edit: fixed

@biosin: I haven't checked it as the nvidia package still supports only 4.16. Please comment so I know it's working.

As of kernel 4.16 virtualbox driver vboxdrv was added to the kernel.

As far as I can determine vboxsf (shared folders) and vboxvideo (3d video) are not in the kernel. But in the guest modules won't install on kernel 4.16+ (Oracle blocked the option). Therefore I deleted the guest part from the package. If anyone need it, just say.

The problem: It's appears that vboxguest module was recently added to kernel. Therefore it should not be in the guest package (No idea how I do this)

@Tharbad - Sorry guys, I never use Virtualbox any more and don't have the free tie to properly maintain this PKG. I am orphaning it. Hopefully, someone will pick it up and fix.

Getting: ==> Starting build()... -> Host modules Module vboxhost/5.2.10_OSE already built for kernel 4.16.7-1-ck-ivybridge/4 -> Guest modules Error! The dkms.conf for this module includes a BUILD_EXCLUSIVE directive which does not match this kernel/arch. This indicates that it should not be built. ==> ERROR: A failure occurred in build(). Aborting... ==> ERROR: Makepkg was unable to build virtualbox-ck-modules.

However virtualbox works just fine. Is that OK?
