Ticket #6263 (closed defect: fixed)
gcc not installed by default in Fedora Core 12 Guest Additions Fail
|Reported by:||ToddAndMargo||Owned by:|
"gcc" in not installed by default in Fedora Core 12. Therefore installing the guest additions fails:
# ./VBoxLinuxAdditions-x86.run ... Building the VirtualBox Guest Additions kernel modules [FAILED] (Your system does not seem to be set up to build kernel modules. Look at /var/log/vboxadd-install.log to find out what went wrong)
In VBoxLinuxAdditions, would you please check for "gcc" and alert the user if it is missing?
Workaround: #yum install gcc
Many thanks, -T
