    I recently tried fedora 19 using virtual box.But installing the guest additions failed even I installed all the dependencies like gcc,kernel headers,kernel devel etc..
    Here is the contents of /var/log//vboxadd-install.log

    Try what the error suggested. And you could install autoconf also

    Re: VirtualBox Building the main Guest Additions module FAILED in fedora 19

    Sorry, I am not an advanced user. Anyway I installed autoconf and tried to run 'make oldconfig && make prepare on the kernel src after moving into /usr/src/kernels/3.9.....But it also failed.I don't know that I went through the right path. I also wonder that how the echo commands actually meant for error suggestion since it just printed as the command itself and not as an output of the echo command.

    Re: VirtualBox Building the main Guest Additions module FAILED in fedora 19

    Are you sure you have the correct kernel-devel installed for the running kernel you are building against?
    I've had no issues for the past couple versions:
    Code:
    vboxhost, 4.2.12, 3.9.4-300.xps.x86_64, x86_64: installed
    vboxhost, 4.2.12, 3.9.4-302.xps.x86_64, x86_64: installed
    vboxhost, 4.2.12, 3.9.5-300.xps.x86_64, x86_64: installed

    Re: VirtualBox Building the main Guest Additions module FAILED in fedora 19

    I use rpmfusion and install

    akmod-VirtualBox
    VirtualBox-guest

    Then I change to /usr/src/akmods and write

    rpm -ivh VirtualBox-*.rpm

    Then reboot and you have
