Virtualbox ose on Ubuntu Gutsy

Today I upgraded my kernel (2.4.26-18). virtualbox-ose-modules-2.6.24-18-generic is still to be released, so Virtualbox stopped to work. module-assistant comes to rescue, but not fully.

Google found this page:

http://mcb.lessthanthree.se/?p=26

where I read about module-assistant, a package to help compile kernel modules.

Unfortunately, the commands listed there:

sudo apt-get install virtualbox-ose-source
sudo module-assistant update
sudo module-assistant prepare
sudo
module-assistant auto-install virtualbox-ose
sudo /etc/init.d/vboxdrv restart

failed to compile and install correctly on one of my boxes (with an AMD64 version of Ubuntu).

But most of the work (downloading compile dependencies and sources) was done by module-assistant. Issuing the following vboxdrv module was installed correctly:

cd /usr/src/modules/virtualbox-ose
sudo make
sudo make install
sudo /etc/init.d/virtualbox-ose restart
