Failure for virtualbox-ose-source with ubuntu karmic: incompatibility btw lh_helper && dkms ?
lh_config --mode ubuntu -d karmic --packages virtualbox-ose-source
lh_build fails at DKMS stage while installing virtualbox-ose-source. The
reason is dkms search linux headers in /lib/modules/2.6.31-11-generic
instead of /lib/modules/2.6.31-12-generic where they actually are.
I'm afraid it is a serious incompatibility issue between lh_helper and
DKMS b/c the 2.6.31-11-generic is the version of the building host and
2.6.31-12-generic is the version of the built target. I have a by-pass:
after upgrading the building host to exactly the same kernel as the
built target all works fine. It is against the very philosophy of
lh_helper -- insulating host and target.
lh_helper from git.
