Re: can't install virtualbox in my wheezy?

I don't have a similar setup but from your errors it is just the headers that can not be found for rebuilding the modules.  I believe DKMS uses the headers based on the values reported via the name command.  Look under /usr/src and see if you have corresponding headers installed and extracted there.  If not, install the header packages with the same identification portion as the kernel you are using when the system boots.  Then try to reinstall the virtualbox packages and reboot.  If the modules are not rebuilt on package installation, they will be rebuilt on reboot.  Hope that helps.

Did you try to install the debian package? You also need virtualbox-dkms
