Virtualbox on Fedora 28

Hello everybody. I'm trying to install VirtualBox 5.2 on Fedora 28 (fresh install). My problem is that I'm not able to finish the /sbin/vboxconfig script. I have the proper kernel-headers and dependencies but in the end, after the script finishes I've got

    sudo /sbin/vboxconfig 
    vboxdrv.sh: Stopping VirtualBox services.
    vboxdrv.sh: Starting VirtualBox services.
    vboxdrv.sh: Building VirtualBox kernel modules.
    vboxdrv.sh: failed: modprobe vboxdrv failed. Please use 'dmesg' to find out why.

   There were problems setting up VirtualBox.  To re-start the set-up process, run
   /sbin/vboxconfig
   as root.

When I check dmesg, I don't see any related VirtualBox information. Kernel and kernel related packages versions:

kernel-devel-4.18.5-200.fc28.x86_64
kernel-core-4.18.5-200.fc28.x86_64
kernel-modules-extra-4.18.5-200.fc28.x86_64
kernel-modules-4.18.5-200.fc28.x86_64

Any help is appreciated!
