Replying to philo: I have the same problem except that the host OS is Vista.

  • Summary changed from Can't build Linux Guest Additions. Host OS : Fedora 8 i686, Guest OS : Fedora 9 preview to Can't build Linux Guest Additions for Fedora 9 preview => Fixed in 1.6

Note that we will still not fully support Fedora9. They are using Xorg 1.5.0 RC1 which is still kind of experimental. Therefore the X modules will not work for this distributions. The other services (timesync, shared folders) will work with 1.6.
