No sweat, take my hand...
Open Synaptic from System --> Administration, search for Virtualbox,
peek at the installed packages. There should be two sets of modules
there to correspond with your kernel be it generic, rt, 386, server,
virtual, or openvz - look for both virtualbox-ose-modules and
I'm running the generic kernel so I have virtualbox-ose-modules-generic
and virtualbox-ose-guest-modules-generic installed which should keep the
right package of the real modules installed as my kernel gets upgraded.
Right now that means in addition to the two above I also have
virtualbox-ose-guest-modules-2.6.24-17-generic installed too.
Hope that helps.
