That's not an OS specific 'issue'. After a kernel update this is also necessary i.e. on ubuntu.
You can install the DKMS-package from EPEL, which will automagically reinstall/rebuild vbox tools during the kernel update process of yum.

What I often find is that I myself start off from the minimal install cd and then manually add packages, like the GUI and then I want to install the vbox guest additions.
I always forget to install the kernel-headers and kernel-devel AND gcc and run into the same problems.

If you encounter these errors, make sure you first try a

Code: Select all

yum install kernel-headers kernel-devel gcc
Then retry to install the vbox additions.
