VirtualBox Guest Addition Installation Fedora 16 Verne
If you installed / virtualized Fedora 16 using VirtualBox then you need to install the following packages before installing the guest additions for Fedora 16 guest OS. Installation of guest additions is a must to get 3D video acceleration required to enable Gnome 3 that is shipped with Fedora Verne.
1. Install kernel headers for the kernel you are running with, as a super user (root) or if you have sudo rights with sudo do the following
yum install kernel-devel-$(uname -r)
2. Install the dependencies and gcc-compiler
yum -y install dkms gcc
3. Install the guest additions using the standard approach, you would be asked for the root password and then the necessary modules would be compiled automatically, to enable the driver, restart the machine. If you want to enable Gnome3 you can check this post.
To get some additional features don’t forget to install VirtualBox 4.1.6 Oracle VM VirtualBox Extension Pack All platforms.
