Default Bug#518053: Kernel module does not fit to virtualbox version

Package: virtualbox-ose-modules-2.6.26-1-686
Version: 2.6.26+1.6.6-dfsg-6
Severity: important


Hi,

the version of virtualbox (virtualbox-ose) changed from 1.6.6 (lenny) to
2.1.4. If I start a virtual machine in virtualbox I get the error:

################################################## #####################
The version of the VirtualBox kernel modules and the version of
VirtualBox application are not matching. You can correct this by either
installing the correct virtualbox-ose-modules package (if available)
through apt-get or by building it manually with: module-assistant
auto-install virtualbox-ose (VERR_VM_DRIVER_VERSION_MISMATCH).
################################################## #####################

Thus, the kernel modules must be rebuild. I wonder if it is possible to
prevent virtualbox from entering testing if there is not appropriate
kernel module. Or is rebuilding with "module-assistant auto-install
virtualbox-ose" the way to to it?

Kind regards from Martin
