|virtualbox xf86-video-virtualbox compile fails with "KERN_DIR does not point to a directory"
In my case, it's a permission thing.
Root, on my system, gives no world access, by default.
Assuming kernel version 4.0.5-gentoo, I had to
|chmod o+rx /lib/modules/4.0.5-gentoo
chmod o+r /lib/modules/4.0.5-gentoo/* # Not sure if this was strictly necessary
I generally also have to
so that portage has the ability to do the needful.
|chown -R portage:portage /usr/src/linux/ |
