Hi, Now I'm co-maintaining VirtualBox on rpmfusion
you got on my external link VB 4.1.4 for F15
if you try it let me know ,
in meantime I will read the begging of the thread, I also have some
doubts about the kernels 41.
But the main problem is, can't submit it on F15 because kBuild is not
updated (on F15) and I'm waiting for a decision on fesco about this
matter (update kBuild).
