I've tried upgrading my 9.2-RELEASE system to 9.3-RELEASE a few times, =
but each time I had to revert because starting any Virtualbox VMs causes =
a kernel panic.  I found this thread about the issue:


What I don't understand is why it is expected that the repository kernel =
module wouldn't be in sync with the 9.3-RELEASE kernel. Is it because =
the packages are relevant to all 9.x releases and there's no way to have =
a kernel module work with them all?  If so, why bother having a kmod =
package at all?

On a related note, how difficult is it to build the kernel module?  I =
have never built it from source in the past and don't even have kernel =
sources installed.  I use stock kernels from the releases.  Are there =
ways this build can get screwed up if options/packages aren't correct?
