VirtualBox broken, VirtualBox fixed; kernel 5.4.1

To VirtualBox users:

I hit a hiccup after installing the 5.4.1 kernel and using the generic Linux *.run install of VirtualBox 6.0.14 (it kicks up an error installing the modules).

This is solved in the development version VB 6.1 found here

I'm testing still now but VB6.1 works as expected so far.

It's not a hiccup, it's expected that 6.0.14 cannot compile its modules against Linux 5.4.

6.0.15 has patched module sources, and it's not as poopy as the betas...

A direct link to the .run file. Don't click this link if you want it, Right click and Save. If clicked, it will try to load as a text file because those .run files are shell script with binary archive grafted on.
