[Pkg-virtualbox-devel] Bug#541832: virtualbox-ose: Kernel module and application version mismatch

Package: virtualbox-ose
Version: 2.1.4-dfsg-1
Severity: grave
Justification: renders package unusable


When lunching a virtual machine, the following message appears:

The version of the VirtualBox kernel modules and the version of VirtualBox application are not matching. You can correct this by either installing the correct virtualbox-ose-modules package (if available) through apt-get or by building it manually with: module-assistant auto-install virtualbox-ose (VERR_VM_DRIVER_VERSION_MISMATCH).
Code de résultat : 
NS_ERROR_FAILURE (0x80004005)
Composant :
Interface : 
IConsole {e3c6d4a1-a935-47ca-b16d-f9e9c496e53e}

Nor using the virtualbox-ose-modules package or compiling the module provided by the virtualbox-ose-source package solved this problem.
