Hi Daniel,

Would it be an idea to make a *second* VirtualBox-OSE-Modules-Generic version, which does have the dependency set to the kernel modules? In that case the users can chose between either being in-dependent of Virtualbox and install the latest kernel once it's available (as it is now, but with the downside of "breaking"), or being dependent of Virtualbox (but with the downside of having to wait for the new kernel until the Virtualbox modules are updated)? Personally I would chose for the second option, once it's available. For systems more vulnerable, the first option would be preferred (default?) I guess.

Keep up the good work anyhow!
