Your screenshot doesn't seem to contain your error, but I'll trust that's causing you problems.  It might be instructive to do a pacman -Ql on a couple of those packages to see what they actually contain.

I don't have vboxdrv in /lib/modules/$version either (also not on x86_64). I think, you need to install some additional package to get those (not sure, which) - I would guess some virtualbox-guest-* one.

Re: [SOLVED]modprobe: FATAL: Module vboxdrv not found in directory /lib/mo

Big thanks for your time and answers, problem was in architecture. In pacman.conf was "architecture = auto" and pacman determine it like 'pentium4', ive changed it to 'i686' and everything work fine) Also yesterday ive tried to compile pf-kernel and makepkg said that 'its not possible to compile package for pentium4' but 'uname' says that i have i686, also in makepkg.conf i had 'pentium4' architecture, dont know why. But know all is working perfect. Thank u for ur attention)))

pentium4 is i686 with more features. Just add it to the arch=() array in the PKGBUILD which you try to build. If you build for i686, pacman will refuse to install the package smile

Re: [SOLVED]modprobe: FATAL: Module vboxdrv not found in directory /lib/mo

uname therefore says i686 when you really have i686 plus the pentum4 extra ops.  It's not a guide to which packages are more suitable.
