I would re-install build-essential just to be sure something isn't missing/corrupted.
It should bring in everything required to build those modules.
I had done that earlier and now again...

Code: Select all

$ sudo apt install build-essential
[sudo] password for mark: 
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree       
Reading state information... Done
build-essential is already the newest version (12.3).
0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded.
I'll update with any news...

Edit: Same error appears...

Code: Select all

DKMS: install completed.

Edit: corrected gcc version.

You can try a reinstall of the gcc packages

Code: Select all

sudo apt install --reinstall gcc-6 g++-6 cpp-6 gcc
But they worked fine for the other kernels. Stumped...

I think build-essential is a metapackage, so it won't force the reinstall of its dependencies if you reinstall it.

I do not have access to any version 5 gcc, cpp or g++ I have versions 4.9 and 6 of each installed but all I see for 5 is doc files.

I used cli apt, synaptic and mxpi... all are devoid of the version 5 code.

So I think I have determined what the issue is... although there appears to be nothing I can do to fix it. Here are my findings:

When I get a non-functioning VBox on a new kernel I perform the following:

Code: Select all

$ sudo dpkg-reconfigure virtualbox-dkms
When that command is run on (not supported) kernel the following error appears:

Code: Select all

Error! Bad return status for module build on kernel: 5.0.0-14.1-liquorix-amd64 (x86_64)
Consult /var/lib/dkms/virtualbox/6.0.6/build/make.log for more information.
[ ok ] Unloading VirtualBox kernel modules....
[....] Loading VirtualBox kernel modules...[....] No suitable module for running[FAILel found ... failed!
If I try the following command whenever VBox fails:

Code: Select all

$ sudo modprobe vboxdrv
Two conditions arise:
  • this command works on supported modules without the need for the above command.
  • On a kernel that is (not supported) the error is noted below.
VBox version 5.2.28
4.19.0-1 (supported)
4.19.0-4 (supported)
4.19.4-2 siduction kernel (not supported) modprobe: FATAL: Module vboxdrv not found in directory /lib/modules/4.19.4-2-siduction-amd64
5.0.0-14 liquorix kernel (not supported) modprobe: FATAL: Module vboxdrv not found in directory /lib/modules/5.0.0-14.1-liquorix-amd64


VBox version 6.0.6-1 MXPI testrepos
4.19.0-1 (supported)
4.19.0-4 (supported)
4.19.4-2 siduction kernel (not supported) modprobe: FATAL: Module vboxdrv not found in directory /lib/modules/4.19.4-2-siduction-amd64
5.0.0-14 liquorix kernel (not supported) modprobe: FATAL: Module vboxdrv not found in directory /lib/modules/5.0.0-14.1-liquorix-amd64

So I examined the /lib/modules directory on my machine (where the Fatal Error above occured.
The only modules I have in /lib/modules on my machine are for:
4.9.0.9-amd64
4.19.0-1-amd64
4.19.0-5-amd64
4.19.0-5-cloud-amd64
4.19.0-5-rt-amd64
5.0.0-6.1-liquorix-amd64 (but if I attempt to install this kernel, there are no headers available for it on synaptic; and the kernel is not listed in the testrepos on mxpi)
5.0.0-9.1-liquorix-amd64 (but if I attempt to install this kernel, there are no headers available for it on synaptic; and the kernel is not listed in the testrepos on mxpi)

I'm guessing that this means any kernel not in /lib/modules is effectively unsupported on 6.0.6 of Virtualbox (the version where I examined the /lib/modules folder). If these buggesr are supposed to load somehow, I have no idea how or where they come from... :bagoverhead: :needcoffee:

I hope this helps someone. :lipsrsealed:

You could post the log the error message tells you to consult. It should have clues as to why the module failed to build.

Code: Select all

/var/lib/dkms/virtualbox/6.0.6/build/make.log

Thanks Tim... I just loaded a kernel that fails and did a clean install. The log follows. Seems that there is some kind of gcc problem, but why with only certain kernels?

I'm looking at those files and you do have something odd going on.
Please run

Code: Select all

dpkg --print-architecture
and

Code: Select all

uname -m

That eliminates one possible issue. How about running:

Code: Select all

/usr/src/linux-headers-5.0.0-14.1-liquorix-amd64/scripts/gcc-version.sh -p gcc
MSI 970A-G43 MB, AMD FX-6300 (six core), 16GB RAM, GeForce 730, Samsung 850 EVO 250GB SSD, Seagate Barracuda XT 3TB

Yes, is this the Liquorix kernel from our test repo, via the package installer?
