Hi, new to the forums, new to Fedora and linux.
Anyway I installed Fedora this morning, got it set up and customized, added some programs, but so far I haven't been able to get Virtual Box to run.
I downloaded it and installed it. but when i try to run the setup with
I get this message.
Stopping VirtualBox kernel module [ OK ]
Recompiling VirtualBox kernel module [FAILED]
(Look at /var/log/vbox-install.log to find out what went wrong)
when i go to that file this is written inside:

completely from the DKMS tree.

You can use the --kernelsourcedir option to tell DKMS where it's located.

I've looked all over the internet, and i found a couple clues. It seems like it may be a problem with my kernel, and other people had to remove and switch to a different one for it to run properly.
Don't know how to do it. heres some info:
Release 12 (constantine)
Kernel Linux 22.214.171.124-127.fc12.i686.PAE
As I'm new to this forum, I skimmed the rules, but please let me know if I'm posting in the wrong category or breaking some sort of rule. Thanks in advance.
