Vboxdrv and custom kernel on slackware 14
 
First, vboxdrv (and the whole virtualbox system) works flawless on the 3.2.29 (hugesmp.s) kernel shipped with slackware 14.
However, I cannot manage to run several version of virtualbox (4.0, 4.1, latest: 4.2) on custom kernel, including the following: 3.2.30, 3.4.11, 3.5.4 and (surprise, surprise) the 3.2.29, which is exactly the same version shipped with s14. Each time I run into the following kernel panic:

either when modprobing the virtualbox or when running a virtual machine. It sounds really strange to me that this happens with several versions of the kernel - it may depend on some modules or features I have configured in the kernel, but which? I do not have an exotic kernel configuration, just the classical things you encounter on an ICH7 sony vaio notebook. I can also attach the .config file if it is needed.

Any hints?

Without knowing what you have changed to the default kernel we can't really help you. Please attach your config file.

Well, ok!

Did you recompile virtualbox-kernel for your new kernel?

urza 10-04-2012 06:28 AM

I recompiled the modules shipped with VirtualBox by /etc/init.d/vboxdrv setup. Virtualbox-kernel is vboxdrv, isn't it?

It seems to work using the .config file shipped in the sources/extra directory of S14. I modified this file a little bit, pruning a lot of unused hardware and it works as well. I really do not know what was wrong with my .config file...
