Install VirtualBox Guest Additions in Fedora
March 23, 2012 2 Comments
I was running Fedora 17 alpha guest on a Windows 7 host (VirtualBox version 4.1.10) and wanted to install VirtualBox Guest Additions. From the VM window menu click Devices and select Install Guest Additions. This will mount a CD under
/media. Open a terminal and run the following commands.
yum install gcc kernel-devel
Reboot the system and you should be good to go.
Remember to re-install VirtualBox Guest Additions (VBGA) after updating/upgrading your kernel and then reboot. Otherwise some features or custom settings might not work.
