Hello geeko minions,

I've found that our suse distribution of vbox 5.1.22-x is broken. There is
missing completely on package level infrastructure for building the modules
locally. Moreover, etc/init.d/vboxdrv requires that for its ability to setup()
function and it could be clearly seen - after you add exec 2>/var/tmp/`basename
$0`.debug; set -x to etc/init.d/vboxdrv - that the script is failing at this
point expecting what is not present in usr/lib/virtualbox

Normally you find this infra in $VBOXSRC/src/VBox/Installer/linux ..

If you are using for example the kernel from
http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/Kernel:/stable/standard/ there's no
easy way to build modules locally.

Proposed fix:

re-add to a virtualbox package scripts for building modules or create some
another package for it.

regards, daniel
