I have several problems with virtualbox on fedora 28 workstation. Problems are described below:
First at all, I tried to install virtualbox following to this tutorial: https://www.if-not-true-then-false.com/2010/install-virtualbox-with-yum-on-fedora-centos-red-hat-rhel/
I got stuck at step 5: Install VirtualBox Latest Version 5.2
dnf install VirtualBox-5.2
I got error: No match for argument: VirtualBox-5.2 Error: Unable to find a match.
I resolved this problem as described below:
I download rpm package from official site and install it with right clicking on it and choose open with software install
After successful installation I created vm with win10 64bit and tried to run it and then I get this:
Of course I run /sbin/vboxconfig in terminal as described in modal window but I got error : vboxdrv.sh: failed: modprobe vboxdrv failed. Please use 'dmesg' to find out why.
After small research I found this article (https://gorka.eguileor.com/vbox-vmware-in-secureboot-linux-2016-update/), which looks like can solve my problem:
So I followed steps
I skipped first command because I already installed all required packages from this tutorial (virtualbox, gcc and kernel-devel)
Then I tried second command :
sudo akmods and get:
No akmod packages found, nothing to do. [ OK ]
After trying third command:
sudo modprobe -v vboxdrv
ERROR: could not insert 'vboxdrv': Operation not permitted
So I couldnt continue....
- What should cause : No match for argument: VirtualBox-5.2 Error: Unable to find a match. ???
2.How Could I solve errors produced by commands sudo akmods and sudo modprobe -v vboxdrv to get same result as in tutorial ?
3.I also encoutered to this Failed to synchronize cache for repo 'virtualbox', disabling. What does it mean ? and how could be solved ?
My virtualbox/kernel version is:
virtualbox - v5.2.20
fedora kernel version 4.18.14-200.fc28.x86_64.
