I have installed the Debian Jessie (8) using the Parallels desktop in the MacBook Pro host. It goes fine for some time and now I keep getting message,

some of the required kernel modules are missing. To solve this problem, please try to reinstall Parallels Tools using the virtual machine menu

How do I install the required kernel modules?


Have you tried reinstalling Parallels Tools like the message says? That would seem to fix the problem you're having.

  • Yes, this is what I have done and the problem is solved. This was the first time I was using the Linux and asked some bad questions in the forum. Now, I certainly know this was not appropriate but, I already get banned from asking new questions. – Arefe Feb 26 '18 at 9:17
  • Now, this is been 2.5 months with Linux and I'm good with the OS. Would you mind to upvote the question if you like? With some of this effort, I can ask \ questions here again and put efforts to improve the community – Arefe Feb 26 '18 at 9:18
  • Sure thing. I'm sorry you got banned from asking questions. – dsstorefile1 Feb 26 '18 at 9:20
