Installing VirtualBox guest additions on CentOS or RHEL

Process is very simple

  1. Login as root

  2. Install dependencies # yum install gcc make kernel-headers kernel-devel

  3. Reboot for loading new kernel info if required and to be on safer side

  4. Use gmake instated of make #export MAKE='/usr/bin/gmake -i'

  5. Insert guest additions CD

  6. goto installer # cd /media/VBOXADDITIONS*

  7. #./VBoxLinuxAdditions.run

  8. Reboot and enjoy
