[solved] virtualbox-host-modules-artix outdated

it seems to me that galaxy/virtualbox-host-modules-artix 5.2.22-14 needs an update.
virtualbox is on version 6.0.*
for arch are can find the right modules
community/virtualbox-host-modules-arch 6.0.0-2
i got this error when try to start any VM

RTR3InitEx failed with rc=-1912 (rc=-1912)

The VirtualBox kernel modules do not match this version of VirtualBox. The installation of VirtualBox was apparently not successful. Executing

'/sbin/vboxconfig'

may correct this. Make sure that you do not mix the OSE version and the PUEL version of VirtualBox.

where: supR3HardenedMainInitRuntime what: 4 VERR_VM_DRIVER_VERSION_MISMATCH (-1912) - The installed support driver doesn't match the version of the user.

I can confirm that I am receiving the same error and that vboxconfig offered as a fix does not exist on the filesystem.  I have tried reinstalling virtualbox-host-dkms-6.0.0-1 and DKMS is not bombing out but the error persists.

Code: [Select]
sudo pacman -S virtualbox-host-dkms

And just for anyone else that runs into the same issue that can't figure out how to work around the issue themselves, the quick fix until the dev's sort out the issue should be to downgrade if you've kept the old installers in /var/cache/pacman/pkg.  You'll need to go to VirtualBox's web site to grab the old extensions if you let the installer delete the package when you update.  The old extensions can be found at:

Code: [Select]
https://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/Download_Old_Builds_5_2

The commands to downgrade are:

Code: [Select]
sudo pacman -U /var/cache/pacman/pkg/virtualbox-5.2.22-3-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz /var/cache/pacman/pkg/virtualbox-guest-iso-5.2.22-1-any.pkg.tar.xz /var/cache/pacman/pkg/virtualbox-host-dkms-5.2.22-3-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz
