Yes, RPM Fusion does not have the oracle virtualbox modules yet. You have to wait until they build the package.

Do you know how I run oracle virtualbox on my Fedora 20 , with no need of kmod-virtualbox--- modules ?

I have added the Official Oracle virtualbox repository (this is for the latest VirtualBox version)

[virtualbox]
name=Fedora $releasever - $basearch - VirtualBox
baseurl=http://download.virtualbox.org/virtualbox/rpm/fedora/$releasever/$basearch
enabled=1
gpgcheck=1
gpgkey=http://download.virtualbox.org/virtualbox/debian/oracle_vbox.asc

Then install virtualbox like this

sudo yum install VirtualBox-4.3

then install dkms and enable dkms.service . The dkms helps to build the modules that needed for the kernel.

sudo yum install dkms ; sudo systemctl enable dkms.service

Reboot your system and see if it works.

Right now I have Oracle Virtualbox 4.3.12 with 3.14.9-200.fc20.x86_64 and it is working without problems.

Reboot your system and see if it works. If not, see the errors, maybe it needs some development pacakges, I'm not sure which of these, because I have the whole "Development Tools" installed on my system.
