Which version of the virtualbox should I choose?

I’m trying to install the virtualbox on my machine and I know it should match the version of the kernel I’m running, but the kernel is 5.13, which one should I choose list below, the dkms ?

$ uname -r

$ 5.13.19-2-MANJARO

See VirtualBox - Manjaro

Hello @FallingSky_42 :wink:

As you see kernel 5.13 is not there, which means that it is dropped already and EOL. Upgrade it and have also a LTS version available (5.4 or 5.10). Possibly on the next upgrade it could be removed completely, which results in an emergency shell at boot time.

Stable Releases goes EOL after 3 Months, LTS ones live longer: https://www.kernel.org/


OK, I will try it, thanks ! :laughing:

Well, the virtualbox runs pretty well on my machine, and another problem (with solution)is list below:

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


run the commands:

$ mhwd-kernel -li
=> Currently running: 5.14.21-2-MANJARO (linux514)

$ sudo pacman -S linux()-headers 
//e.g. linux514-headers

$ sudo /sbin/rcvboxdrv setup
