I allow my linux machines to update weekly. I have virtual box
installed on all of them. After the updates yesterday the
virtualbox failed with these error:
RTR3InitEx failed with rc=-1912
The VirtualBox kernel modules do not match
this version of VirtualBox. The installation of VirtualBox was
apparently not successful. Executing
may correct this. Make sure that you do
not mix the OSE version and the PUEL version of VirtualBox.

virtual machine 'Genealogy' has terminated unexpectedly
startup with exit code 1 (0x1).
I tried running
modprobe vboxdrv but this did nothing. I noticed that virtualbox
is now part of the ubuntu repository. I originally downloaded
virtualbox from the Oracle site.
How can OI et my
virtual machoines working again?
Do I need to delete
the virtualbox software which downloaded with the last updates and
reinstall the version from the oracle site?
Can anyone help me
or tell me where I can get help?
I have one machine
that has not been updated and virtual box still works. I can move
all of my virtual machines to this machine but for various reasons
I do not want to do this. I need to know how to correct the

Seemingly not. Seemingly either dkms needs to build the kernel
modules or a package needs to provide the modules that fit to your
kernel, as well as to your virtualbox version and then those kernel
modules needs to be loaded.

I installed virtualbox from the Oracle website (not from the distro's
repositories) on Arch Linux. Assuming the modules are not
provided by a package, then the commands to check against a version
mismatch are the same for Ubuntu:
When packages like VirtualBox are added to a distribution I would expect
it to run without any problems. Is anyone else havin problems with the
version of VirtualBox which is now included in the Ubuntu distribution.
