So did you actually read what you posted here? What's wrong with Please install the build and header files for your current Linux kernel. The current kernel version is 2.6.25-14.fc9.i686? Did you install these kernel headers?

Ah, I hadn't noticed the mismatch in those version numbers.

Hi, I've update my kernel by # yum install kernel and # yum install kernel-devel

but when I try to install the addon it still came up the same message

what should I do?

careyhung, please ask this sort of question on the VirtualBox forums, as the bugtracker is for reporting problems in the VirtualBox software. Thanks!
