I try to install VirtualBox Guest Additions on a CentOS 7 VM.
I installed the prerequisites via
sudo yum install perl gcc dkms kernel-devel kernel-headers make bzip2
then I "inserted" the Guest Additions CD image and the Guest Additions auto runner came up and ran.
However the Guest Additions installation errored out with
VirtualBox Guest Additions: Kernel headers not found for target kernel 3.10.0-1062.el7.x86_64.
For closer examination I issued the following commands in the Terminal shell of the VM:
$ ls /usr/src/kernels/ 3.10.0-1062.18.1.el7.x86_64
$ uname -r 3.10.0-1062.el7.x86_64
Notice the ddition caharcters
18.1 in the installed headers copared to what the kernel reports. I guess that is the reason why he Guest Additions installation fails.
How can I fix this and install the Guest Additions?
A few more details:
- OS Version: CentOS 7.7.1908
- Guest Additions Version: 6.1.6
