What else does the virtuabox-ose package need other than this?
michael at feivel:~$ grep AUTOINSTALL /usr/src/virtualbox-ose-3.1.2/dkms.conf
I've seen the same problems coming up several times because dkms couldn't tell
that it had to recompile because the kernel version number didn't change. Are
you sure this is not the reason?
