Fedora 11, vbox error

vbox cannot start:

FATAL: Module vboxdrv not found.
FATAL: Module vboxnetflt not found.


Solution:
1. run uname -a to know your kernel version


[whatvn@osvn ~]$ uname -a
Linux osvn 2.6.29.4-167.fc11.i586 #1 SMP Wed May 27 17:14:37 EDT 2009 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux


2. Search and install VirtualBox-OSE kernel module for your kernel:


[whatvn@osvn ~]$ yum search kmod-VirtualBox

finally, run command vbox suggests:

[whatvn@osvn ~]$ sudo '/etc/sysconfig/modules/VirtualBox-OSE.modules'


start your vbox again :d
