debian way to compile virtualbox-ose kernel module

Link to this post 30 Dec 09

I compiled a kernel myself with `make-kpkg`. But now I want to use virtualbox-ose and don't know how to compile the source and install it in the debian way - making a package.

I compiled the kernel my self with realtime patch because for programming.

kernel version is: 2.6.31.6-rt19

Link to this post 03 Jan 10

I run the following command `dkms build -m vboxdrv -v 3.1.2 --kernelsourcedir /usr/src/linux-2.6.31.6-rt19` and I got some errors.

here's my /var/lib/dkms/vboxdrv/3.1.2/build/make.log

I did `make-kpkg kernel-image kernel-source kernel-headers --revision=custom.1.0 --initrd` and then I installed the header files. This seemed to fix the issue, the vboxdrv compiled successfully but output something I have to do, don't know anymore what. But my question is has someone experiences with using a realtime kernel and virtualbox (non-ose - I changed because I need usb support)

Link to this post 05 Jan 10

I am sorry that I did not respond before I don't use a debian based dristro and don't know the dpkg syntax. As for using virtualbox with the kernel, it should automatically apply all necessary files and modules to interact with your kernel, so if the kernel is stable and works with your installed components then vbox should be able to interact with the same components.
