VBOX GuestAdditions and Fedora 9 guest

I want to install Guest additions on Fedora9 guest but
even after installed kernel headers and devel packages it said
"please install build and header files of your kernel..."
what's the hell ?

thanks

Make sure the kernel headers you installed match the running kernel. Check version with "uname -a". If there have been updates since you installed, you will need the new kernel as well.

yum install gcc kernel kernel-headers kernel-devel

Reboot the VM to make sure you have new kernel, if one was installed.

Then retry running VBoxLinuxAdditions.run
