    Virtual Box Guest Additions fail to build kernel 3.5

    Host: Mac OS X 10.7.4
    Guest: Fedora 17
    Vbox 4.1.12 through 4.2.0 beta.

    Normally when I mount the Guest Additions image, the install script runs automatically, I authenticate, and it builds fine, I reboot, no problems.

    Since kernel 3.5.0-2, I get a failure building the main Guest Additions module. /var/log/vboxadd-install.log

    The only clues in the log (attached):

    Code:
    /tmp/vbox.0/r0drv/linux/memobj-r0drv-linux.c: In function ‘rtR0MemObjLinuxDoMmap’:
    /tmp/vbox.0/r0drv/linux/memobj-r0drv-linux.c:1150:9: error: implicit declaration of function ‘do_mmap’ [-Werror=implicit-function-declaration]
    cc1: some warnings being treated as errors
    make[2]: *** [/tmp/vbox.0/r0drv/linux/memobj-r0drv-linux.o] Error 1
    make[1]: *** [_module_/tmp/vbox.0] Error 2
    make: *** [vboxguest] Error 2
    Suggestions?

    You probably need to wait till they update VirtualBox again since their stuff always breaks when a new kernel or xorg has been released.
    If you really can't wait you could also check out the VB beta of 4.2, which might have been patched for 3.5 already but also has a lot of nice new features.

    Already tried 4.2.0 beta and it doesn't build there either.

    Version 4.2.0 RC1 confirmed working for me: http://download.virtualbox.org/virtualbox/4.2.0_RC1/

    They just released it today. If you want to wait for a stable version, I'm sure it's around the corner.
