Virtualbox


I had Virtualbox installed and running on Fedora 9.
I updated from 2.0.4 to 2.2.2.

After than, Virtualbox was not more working correct.
I can not remove it via rpm -e. I did it via yum erase Virtualbox.

Afterwarts I tried to install v2.2.2 but I get errors during installation.

who can help me ?

have you tried removing the virtualbox-ose-modules-<uname -a>?,
then installing the new version, then installing the modules again
(did work that way yesterday for me)

it did even save my settings.
greetings

If these modules are not removed by "yum erase Virtualbox", then they were not removed.

How can I check to see if these modules are still there?

How to remove them ?
(erase by hand ?)

thanks,

so you tried rpm -e VirtualBox-2.0.4_38406_fedora9-1.i386 exactly how it is shown here?
If that didn't work you can try rpm -Uhv --nodeps <the rpm you are trying to install>

Sorry, missed the other post of Unmindfulawe. just ignore.


in debian it would be
uname -a
to tell you your current kernel version, and then
apt-cache policy virtualbox-ose-modules-<output of uname -a>
to tell you if its installed.
i guess in fedora its different.

if there`s a graphical packagemanager just enter virtualbox as a search term
and choose the installed virtualbox-ose-modules-****
(in my case i had to remove the modules seperately).
after installing virtualbox i had to reinstall the modules again.

sorry i can`t tell it more specific for fedora
greetings
