During the installation of “Insert Guest Additions CD Image” everytime it was failing. The purpose of installing is will help us in free movement of cursor(mouse pointer) from host to guest and vice versa without using right CTRL key. Everytime if we want to move our cursor from guest to host or host to guest we need to press right CTRL key.
I am running my host on Windows7
and Guest running on OEL6.4
When i was installing i see below error:
When i checked the log file mention in the above screen, i see below error.
Creating udev rule for the Guest Additions kernel module.
/tmp/vbox.0/Makefile.include.header:97: *** Error: unable to find the sources of your current Linux kernel. Specify KERN_DIR=<directory> and run Make again. Stop.
Creating user for the Guest Additions.
To overcome this error update gcc using
1.yum update gcc
2. yum update
3. yum install kernel-uek-devel
*Please note that to execute “yum” your guest vmbox should have internet connection
now after doing all the above I again executed ./VMBoxLinuxAdditions.run
