Re: Unable to install Vbox Guest Additions even after installing headers

I fired up a new VM of centos8 and reproduced the error in installing Guest Additions. What I found is that the following prerequisits are needed and then it did compile correctly

tar
bzip2
kernel-devel
kernel-headers
perl
gcc
make
elfutils-libelf-devel

Code: Select all

yum install tar bzip2 kernel-devel-$(uname -r) kernel-headers perl gcc make elfutils-libelf-devel  
Hopefully I redeemed myself from the bad post above :)
