virtualbox 4.0 won't compile it's vboxdrv module


With the kernel updates in wheezy my vboxdrv module won't compile. This is the output from the command 'dpkg-reconfigure':

Code:
# dpkg-reconfigure virtualbox-4.0
Stopping VirtualBox kernel modules:.
addgroup: The group `vboxusers' already exists and is not a system group. Exiting.
update-rc.d: warning: vboxdrv stop runlevel arguments (0 1 6) do not match LSB Default-Stop values (1)

insserv: warning: current stop runlevel(s) (0 1 2 6) of script `vboxdrv' overwrites defaults (1).

Uninstalling old VirtualBox DKMS kernel modules:.
Trying to register the VirtualBox kernel modules using DKMS:
Failed, trying without DKMS ... failed!
Recompiling VirtualBox kernel modules:
Look at /var/log/vbox-install.log to find out what went wrong ... failed!
insserv: warning: current start runlevel(s) (3 4 5) of script `vboxweb-service' overwrites defaults (2 3 4 5).
insserv: warning: current stop runlevel(s) (0 1 2 6) of script `vboxweb-service' overwrites defaults (0 1 6).
Here's the 'vbox-install.log' mentioned above:

Code:
Makefile:178: *** Error: /usr/src/linux (version 2.6.39) does not match the current kernel (version 2.6.39-3.dmz.2-liquorix-686).  Stop.
I thought maybe I had done something funny to uname, so I reinstalled 'coreutils' (does coreutils contain uname?). This didn't help. What should I do? You can see from the output I tried the liquorix kernel thinking that that might solve the issue. I get mostly the same problem. Has anyone else had this sort of problem?

Install virtualbox-source and virtualbox-dkms

Or you can use svmi, from the smxi maintainer.

thanks. I installed the ose versions as you suggested and then after some messing with module-assistant I got it to work. I did have to install virtualbox-qt... without which there was no qt based vm management tool. Thanks again.
