Failed to start kernel module

I am new to Manjaro, I was using Ubuntu for a month then I decided to use some more Linux distributions. I was installing virtual box in manjaro using this https://wiki.manjaro.org/index.php?title=VirtualBox .
Now at boot time I see lots of lines running but one of them says
" Failed to start Kernal module " . I want to solve this problem .

Did you install the virtualbox-host-modules?
Restart and then add your user to the vboxusers group?
sudo modprobe vboxdrv
sudo vboxreload

No . I just install virtual box then I install the module.
I followed these :-

  1. sudo pacman -S virtualbox
  2. uname -r
  3. sudo pacman -S linux 37 -virtualbox-host-modules
  4. sudo vboxreload

That's just an example.
You need to install it to match your installed/used kernel.

For example, if you are using kernel 4.19, it should be so.
sudo pacman -S linux419-virtualbox-host-modules

Yes. I did the way you said. I used sudo pacman -S linux419 -virtualbox-host-modules

Have a look here:

I no more want to install virtualbox i just want to fix those errors.

What errors?

This error? We have to know what module failed to load.

Yes this error

So, what kernel module is failing ?

That seems related to deepin-anything package. Update it if you use Deepin desktop.

All those are related to virtualbox. If you

then remove ALL the packages related to it, then reboot.

When you see these errors you have installed virtualbox-guest-utils and/or KERNEL-virtualbox-guest-modules on a system that is not a virtual machine.

But I cannot be sure because you are not providing info on what you have done.

So for us to help you we need to know which packages you have installed on the host and which packages you have installed in the guest, if any.

yes I use deepin.

I have already removed virtual box by doing .
sudo pacman -R virtualbox.

but not whatever modules you installed with it, and as was pointed out

probably you installed the wrong modules ... not the host ones, but the guest, that is why i said to remove ALL vbox related packages you installed.

The - by far - easiest way of removing all modules is to open Pamac. Pamac is the Add/Remove Software app.

When open type in virtualbox, then deselect all packages designated by a :ballot_box_with_check: and click Apply.

None of them is ticked.

Check

journalctl -p3
systemctl --failed

IIRC deepin uses some kernel modules for some DE features. Search the forum for deepin kernel module.
You might also try the fallback grub menu option.
Make sure you properly update your packages.

I installed manjaro again.

Yes I got it. This error was due the deepin. I remove deepin now there is not a single line of code appears on the screen.
