Description

Got an error message while attempting to install guest additions in a Fedora Rawhide guest for the 4.9.0-0.rc0.git6.2.fc26.x86_64 kernel.

vboxadd.sh: failed: Look at /var/log/vboxadd-install.log to find out what went wrong.
vboxadd.sh: failed: Please check that you have gcc, make, the header files for your Linux kernel and possibly perl installed.

Probably still broken with VB 5.1.8. Got the following error trying to build GA on my Rawhide guest while running the 4.9.0-0.rc1.git0.2.fc26.x86_64 kernel. Earlier output appears normal.

Failed to set up service vboxadd, please check the log file /var/log/VBoxGuestAdditions.log for details.

Here is the entire content of that log file:

Created symlink /etc/systemd/system/multi-user.target.wants/vboxadd.service → /usr/lib/systemd/system/vboxadd.service.

The 4.9 guest additions do build when using VBoxGuestAdditions_5.1.9-111755.iso (with VB 5.1.8).
