Default Bug#463700: Alias configuration for kernel module should be provided

Package: virtualbox-ose-modules-2.6.22-3-k7
Version: 2.6.22+1.5.2-dfsg2-9
Severity: normal

--- Please enter the report below this line. ---
An alias configuration should be provided for the kernel module

VirtualBox itself requires the module vboxdrv to be loaded in kernel and
the device /drv/vboxdrv to be available for full functionality.

The functionality is provided by the package
virtualbox-ose-modules-`uname -r` (if available for the currently
running kernel.

An alias should be provided in /etc/modprobe.d dir

sample file
====== /etc/modprobe.d/virtualbox ======
# virtualbox alias
alias vboxdrv virtualbox-ose
