Modprobe: FATAL


I used following article: VirtualBox - Manjaro

My Kernel:

mhwd-kernel -li
Currently running: 5.16.11-arch1-1-surface (linux516)

Command used:

sudo pacman -Syu virtualbox linux516-virtualbox-host-modules

I did both sudo vboxreload and system reboot


Unloading modules: 
Loading modules: modprobe: FATAL: Module vboxnetadp not found in directory /lib/modules/5.16.11-arch1-1-surface
modprobe: FATAL: Module vboxnetflt not found in directory /lib/modules/5.16.11-arch1-1-surface
modprobe: FATAL: Module vboxdrv not found in directory /lib/modules/5.16.11-arch1-1-surface

This is not a manjaro kernel.

You need to install the headers that goes with that kernel and then use the dkms version of the virtualbox host modules as you are manually managing your kernels.


Thanks for prompt response.

It is surface-linux kernel Microsoft Surface Book 2 - ArchWiki

sudo pacman -S virtualbox-guest-dkms
