Hi, when I try to install VirtualBox kernel module package (kmod-VirtualBox), I've gon an error

package kmod-VirtualBox-5.0.14-1.fc23.x86_64 requires kmod-VirtualBox-4.2.3-300.fc23.x86_64 >= 5.0.14-1.fc23, but none of the providers can be installed.

Allow erasing does not work. Thanks for your help.

check your kernerl version uname -r

try to remove virtual box end reboot the system

sudo dnf remove VirtualBox-5.0.x86_64 shutdown -r now

after the reboot try to reinstall VBox

sudo dnf install VirtualBox-5.0-5.0.6_103037_fedora22-1.x86_64 sudo /etc/init.d/vboxdrv setup

if this dosen't work

dnf remove kmod-VirtualBox-* dnf install akmod-VirtualBox kernel-devel akmods systemctl restart systemd-modules-load
