I am getting crash reports. net/mac80211/driver-ops results in drv_remove_interface. My network interface is removed and I can't connect to the WiFi. I can recover this by shutting down or going in and out of flight mode. It looks like it crashes once I unsuspend it.

I can't report this. My kernel is tainted. It's VirtualBox modules: vboxpci, vboxnetadp, vboxnetfit and vboxdrv.

  • Is VirtualBox causing the issue or is it just restricting me from sending the report?
  • Do I need to reinstall VirtualBox after the upgrade?
  • Is there a bug in Fedora with VirtualBox and the network interface?
  • Is this message misleading and completely unrelated to VirtualBox?

Regardless, I uninstalled it. As most sites referred to the removal in lower case, I just want to highlight that it is title case in Fedora.

sudo dnf remove VirtualBox-5.2.24-1.fc29.x86_64
sudo dnf remove VirtualBox-kmodsrc-5.2.24-1.fc29.noarch
sudo dnf remove VirtualBox-server-5.2.24-1.fc29.x86_64
sudo dnf remove virtualbox-guest-additions-5.2.24-1.fc29.x86_64

    If you do not have a specific use for VirtualBox (such as bridging wireless without masquerading or something), you might could give QEMU/KVM a shot, perhaps with one of several front-ends. – Kenneth B. Jensen Feb 8 at 6:25

    Thanks, much appreciated. I will look into that as an alternative. – cbillowes Feb 8 at 6:31
