please download the most recent version of the VirtualBox Guest Additions
ISO from


This build contains fixes for the vboxvideo kernel driver to make it work
with the RedHat 3.10.0-693 Linux kernel so that a driver for X.org 1.19 is
not required.

You can consider this Guest Additions test build as stable. I cannot provide
any ETA yet when the next 5.1.x maintenance release with this fix is released.
