VirtualBox 6.0 – 1912 error on Fedora

After updating VirtualBox to 6.0 I had a problem with starting the virtual machines – RTR3InitEx failed with rc=-1912 (rc=-1912). How to resolve this?

1. remove older version of VirtualBox packages

dnf remove VirtualBox* kernel-devel-*

2.install packages:

dnf install binutils qt5-qtx11extras libxkbcommon gcc make patch libgomp glibc-headers glibc-devel kernel-headers kernel-devel dkms

3. install the new version – e.g.

dnf localinstall VirtualBox-6.0-6.0.4_128413_fedora29-1.x86_64.rpm

4. run as root
