Been trying to get CentOS 9 working on VBox, and have been having extreme difficulty with getting VBox additions installed. What I eventually discovered:
I was running kernel 5.14.0-142.el9.x86_64 which was the default kernel version installed with the fresh .iso
It errored out every time, the line that popped out in the log file was:
fatal error: drm/drm_irq.h: No such file or directory
I was able to get VBox additions by installing an older kernel version and booting to that.
yum install kernel-5.14.0-124.el9 kernel-devel-5.14.0-124.el9
kernel-5.14.0-124.el9 was the oldest kernel version available in yum, but I was able to install VBox additions running that version.
