towo has pointed at this one:
      Code:
make -C /usr/src/linux-headers-$(uname -r) kernelrelease
uname -r

While our kernel does have an EXTRAVERSION, it has no value attached in the makefile.
To avoid endless non-productive discussions and guessing, let's handle this as an official bug report.
Greetings,
Chris

Hi slam,

do ordinary users have to take any actions on this topic?

Please define "ordinary user" and "any actions". Wink
(assuming that we know the definition of 'slam', 'have to' and 'topic')

In case your "ordinary user" is a kernel hacker who rebuilds the official sidux kernel then maybe - depending on how (s)he does it. Action item is (optionally) to discuss it.
In case your "ordinary user" doesn't compile kernels her/himself the action item is: "ignore it"

Its more or less a todolist item for the team - something to clarify/fix before releasing -03 (maybe), so don't worry, be happy, next release will be better and "ordinary user" will not even notice it. Wink

Even for most kernel-modules this is irrelevant, just Virtualbox is known so far for having problems with it.

Can this be a temporal fix?

Take whatever value uname -r has, eliminate the 2.6.3x, add that to /usr/src/linux-headers-$(uname -r)/Makefile EXTRAVERSION line?
example:
EXTRAVERSION = -1.slh.2-aptosid-amd64

The vbox module test sees to match after editing the Makefile
      Code:
uname -r ; make -sC /lib/modules/$(uname -r)/build --no-print-directory kernelrelease 2>/dev/null

Greetings,


Have experienced a similar thing: After all modules in init 5 has been loaded during boot, keres switched to tty1 and I had to do startx manually. This has happened in VirtualBox (Tested it 7 times with different options).
