I used some updated vboxvideo files from the vbox repo. Now it all builds again, hopefully with no ill effects.

I've tried that already. vboxhost modules build, guest do not, as there are other differences. If you did get that to build also, I can check again though, I could be wrong.

Builds fine on 4.7r2 with this patch applied:

SBeaver commented on 2016-05-30 21:39

4.6 will not build, as something changed there from the last RC to the final version. If you want something now, the last RC will build (rc7 I think).
4.7rc1 will also not build, which is why I havnt updated this package yet.
Again DKMS is lagging behind and doesn't match linux. VBoxNetAdp-linux.c needs to be updated to match a struct changed in include/linux/netdevice.h.

Hey all. I've been having issues building on 4.6 mainline:
make KERNELRELEASE=4.6.0-mainline -C /usr/lib/modules/4.6.0-mainline/build M=/tmp/virtualbox-modules-mainline/src/dkms/vboxhost/5.0.20_OSE/build...(bad exit status: 2)
Error! Bad return status for module build on kernel: 4.6.0-mainline (x86_64)
Consult /tmp/virtualbox-modules-mainline/src/dkms/vboxhost/5.0.20_OSE/build/make.log for more information.

vbox dkms uses get_user_pages from mm.h incorrectly so I now patch this.
The old fallback macro was removed, which caused the buildproblem in rc4. Comments there suggest that this should have been caught a long time ago by whomever maintains vbox dkms as it should emit a warning when building.

SBeaver commented on 2016-04-12 21:17

Thx. Should be working again now.

Follow workaround from

SBeaver commented on 2016-04-12 17:19

4.6rc3 changed something related to mm.h, so the package no longer builds. Awaiting fix in vbox dkms package.

Thanks. I added your fix. You should now be co-maintainer in case you need to do any changes at some point.
