Problems using VirtualBox error (rc=-1908)

Hello, I was wondering if you could help me, I recently updated my Manjaro (it asked me to do it for some applications) “sudo pacman -Syu” and after doing so I got an error in VirtualBox, from what I’ve been seeing I think it’s related to the kernel, but I’m not sure.

This is the message that comes to me
Kernel driver not installed (rc=-1908)

The VirtualBox Linux kernel driver is either not loaded or not set up correctly. Please try setting it up again by executing

This is my kernel


Have you rebooted your system before launching VirtualBox, just to be sure?

You are correct. That error is what is thrown if you have a virtualbox-kernel mismatch. The VB version you are using isn’t prepared to deal with the kernel that you have installed, from the look of it. Supposedly, VB 6.1.38 can use 6.0 kernels, but perhaps not the exact version of 6 that you are using, and Oracle says that 6.1.38 has “initial support” for 6.0 kernels, so you can interpret that how you want.

Which one is it?

But a reboot is necessary after each kernel update.
