Void not building VirtualBox/DKMS modules
#2

You can find the build log in

/var/lib/dkms/virtualbox-ose/5.1.28/build/make.log

The error was already reported and fixed for VirtualBox 5.2 here: https://www.virtualbox.org/ticket/17267
So I guess the solution is to wait for the update or use e.g. kernel 4.9.

See alse here: https://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic-t-1070060.html
The missing SKB_GSO_UDP was removed from kernel 4.14.

Thanks… I can still use 4.13 so all is good. I’ll wait for the update.

Good to know where that log file is though (as a small aside, I’m using Void as a guest so the path is slightly different (virtualbox-ose versus virtualbox-ose-guest))
