Verifying archive integrity... All good.
Uncompressing VirtualBox 5.2.1 Guest Additions for Linux........
VirtualBox Guest Additions installer
Copying additional installer modules ...
Installing additional modules ...
VirtualBox Guest Additions: Building the VirtualBox Guest Additions kernel modules.

Your problem may be different but when installing Guest Additions for Oracle Linux 7.4 I experienced problems with 5.2 and its corresponding guest additions. I was able to get it working by downgrading the guest additions to 5.1.30. Probably not a good long term solution since they should be a matched set but it did seem to work after that.
