Bug#509872: virtualbox-ose: installing requires to install a new kernel if no debian kernel is found

Salvo Tomaselli-3
Package: virtualbox-ose
Version: 1.6.6-dfsg-3
Severity: normal

I am using a kernel from sidux, when i tried to install virtualbox-ose it wanted to install the latest
debian kernel with virtualbox modules for it. The expected behaviour would be to install the source
and then ask me to use m-a to compile the module.
Anyway installing the source and creating the module before trying to install the package makes
the debian kernel dep disappear.
