Description: A very simple bug to reproduce. I installed Archlinux and VirtualBox guest-modules using virtualbox-guest-modules-arch package.

But they're not loaded on start.

When I try to do a sudo modprobe vboxguest, I get this error:

modprobe: FATAL: Module vboxguest not found in diectory /lib/modules/4.13.12-1-ARCH

Additional info:
virtualbox-guest-modules-arch 5.2.2-1

Steps to reproduce:

Just install Archlinux in a VirtualBox machine, and use virtualbox-guest-modules-arch with virtualbox-guest-utils...

Only workaround? Using dkms package :(
This task depends upon

As I'm running a testing enabled Archlinux installation, I didn't face bug  FS#56454 . Thanks for the info anyway.
