archlinux - Virtualbox kernel modules after reinstall PAE kernel

Everytime i updated my archlinux system, VirtualBox usually down, because this problem:

$ virtualbox
WARNING: The vboxdrv kernel module is not loaded. Either there is no module
         available for the current kernel (3.13.3-1-pae) or it failed to
         load. Please reinstall the kernel module virtualbox-host-modules or if you don't use our stock kernel compile the modules with

           sudo dkms autoinstall

         You will not be able to start VMs until this problem is fixed.

sudo dkms autoinstall
Error! Could not locate dkms.conf file.
File:  does not exist.
This happen because the virtualbox kernel module is not installed. Just install these package: virtualbox-host-modules, virtualbox-guest-modules virtualbox-guest-dkms and recompile vbox kernel module:

sudo dkms install vboxhost/<version (in /usr/src/)>
sudo dkms install vboxguest/<version (in /usr/src/)>
After all, modprobe vboxdrv and vboxnetflt, start and use virtualbox :-).
