After upgrading to virtualbox 6.0.0 the previous modules (v5.2.2) won't be unloaded for some reason. Therefore you'll have to remove them manually so the new ones can be added:

sudo modprobe -r vboxvideo vboxpci vboxnetadp vboxnetflt vboxguest

sudo modprobe -r vboxdrv

sudo systemctl start systemd-modules-load.service

Now it should be working. If you, like me, had a machine running during that update and then sent it to suspend, you'll have to reboot it. It might be a good idea to suspend / poweroff all the VMs before updating (although I didn't have such problem with previous updates).

@simona: With Dynamic Kernel Module Support (DKMS) packages installed every time there's an update on a kernel package it should trigger a rebuild of the particular kernel module (normally because of the pacman hooks in place). So if you have installed virtualbox-host-dkms and you install linux-ck it should, first try to uninstall the old version (if you have any), and then rebuild and install the new virtualbox-host module for the new linux-ck kernel you installed.

sorry for stupid question: I use virtualbox-host-dkms This package can help me with all linux-ck-* (i use "5.3.7-1-ck-skylake")?

@graysky: The guest is part of the kernel now. No need for external package. Line 18 explains the what's happening there.

You're only provided a host module ... is that your intent? You also hardcoded 'linux-ck-ivybridge' into the PKGBUILD (line 18 and in the comments).

A simple and not complete script to update the modules: https://gitlab.com/shaygover/Docs/tree/master/Scripts/AUR

Package needs to be reinstalled after a kernel update. No idea why. Will investigate.

Tharbad commented on 2018-08-30 11:44

Please reinstall the package for kernel 4.18.

ck-ivybridge: Currently the package will fail to build due to missing file in /usr/lib/modules/extramodules-4.17-ck-ivybridge. I reported this. If it happens in other versions please comment.

edit: fixed

@biosin: I haven't checked it as the nvidia package still supports only 4.16. Please comment so I know it's working.
