Installing VirtualBoxAdditions on Fedora 14

To install VirtualBoxAdditions on Fedora 14, you need to install a few a few additional packages.   In this example, I use a fresh install of Fedora 14.

Here are the packages that you will need.


sudo yum install perl dkms gcc kernel-devel kernel-headers

Now is not a bad time to update your kernel (though not required)


sudo yum update kernel

I reboot to the updated kernel.  Then I mount the VirtualBox Additions volume.


cd /media/VBOXADDITIONS_3.2.10_66523

sudo ./VBoxLinuxAddtitions-x86.run

It should install without issue.  You will need to reboot to enjoy the new additions.
