Oracle VM installation on Oracle Linux 5.6 host

Hi All,

I am trying to install the oracle virtual machine 4.2 on Oracle Linux 5.6 host.it is throwing me error related to DKMS. Error message is like below.

stopped Kernel Modules = OK
uninstalled Old Virtualbox DKMS kernel modules = OK
But then I get two fails.
Trying to register the Virtualbox kernel using DKMS = FAILED
Recompoling VirtualBox Kernel = FAILED


when I execute yum update , message is "nothing to update". Also there is no directory inside /usr/src/kernels. I have created on manually as /usr/src/kernels/`uname -r` and set it as KERN_DIR. Still it is showing the same error message.

It seems that I need to install DKMS and update the yum repository then proceed for the VM installation.

Please tell me the method for this as I could not figure out any method to resolve this so far.

Any help is much appreciated.

Thanks & Regards,
Rahul Verma
