No resizing and guest addition error in install after upgrade to Centos 7.6

My Linux guest VM upgraded itself to Centos 7.6 through the normal yum process. It occurred without an error. Upon reboot the display screen no longer resized and was stuck at a small configuration. I thought "OK, rebuild guest addition". (I'm using 5.2.22). There appears to be an error in building the guest additions now. I've included a screen shot of one of them, but there are others in the C compilation.

Any suggestions on how to get resizable windows, or if not, change the window size temporarily until this is fixed?

/etc/centos-release shows "7.6.1810 (Core)"

Try the Guest Additions from the test builds area: https://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/Testbuilds

I can confirm GA 5.2.23 build successfully under CentOS 7.6, however another issue (viewtopic.php?f=3&t=90267) bites you with the newly installed kernel-3.10.0-957-1.3.el7.x86_64.
Stepping back to kernel-3.10.0-862.14.4.el7.x86_64 solved that issue for me (both with GA 5.2.22 and 5.2.23)

I can confirm this issue. I ran into the same problem with CentOS 7.6 (i.e. kernel 957)

I had the same issue and installing the Guest Additions 5.2.23 fixed the issue partially, I had to modify the kernel boot parameters and add "selinux=0" in order to be able to boot into it.

As for the mouse issue, login out and login back in fixed the issue for me so far.
