Playing around to re-install stuff, I figure out that in '/var/lib/dkms/vboxhost' a dir 4.1.0 wasn't removed after the 
installation of 4.1.2?

After I remove it, I can re-install image and headers pkg of my linux-3.0.3 compilation and dkms 2.1 reach to rebuild kernel 
modules vboxhost and nvidia. With dkms 2.2, I still have to find why it doesn't run 'auto installation service' for this kernel?
