I have installed Kali in VirtualBox and now trying to install Guest Additions to get full screen view.
I updated and installed my packages and installed dkms. When I try to install linux-headers I get the following:
# apt-get install linux-headers-$(uname -r) Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done linux-headers-4.14.0-kali1-amd64 is already the newest version (4.14.2-1kali1). 0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 86 not upgraded.
The headers installed are as follows:
# dpkg --get-selections | grep linux-headers linux-headers-4.14.0-kali1-amd64 install linux-headers-4.14.0-kali1-common install linux-headers-amd64 install
When I try to run the Guest Additions CD I get the following:
Verifying archive integrity... All good. Uncompressing VirtualBox 5.0.40 Guest Additions for Linux............ VirtualBox Guest Additions installer Removing installed version 5.0.40 of VirtualBox Guest Additions... Removing existing VirtualBox DKMS kernel modules ...done.

Building the VirtualBox Guest Additions kernel modules The headers for the current running kernel were not found. If the following module compilation fails then this could be the reason. Building the main Guest Additions module ...fail! (Look at /var/log/vboxadd-install.log to find out what went wrong) Doing non-kernel setup of the Guest Additions ...done. Press Return to close this window...
It appears to me that the correct linux headers for the kernal are installed. Why is VBox not able to find them?
