    Virtual box help needed - host networking

    hello folks.

    i am unable to create host networking virtualbox 6.0. when i try to start getting the below error.
    what kernal version should i use for virtualbox6.0 and fedora 30 i am currently using.

    [root@localhost yum.repos.d]# /usr/lib/virtualbox/vboxdrv.sh restart
    vboxdrv.sh: Stopping VirtualBox services.
    vboxdrv.sh: Starting VirtualBox services.
    vboxdrv.sh: Building VirtualBox kernel modules.
    This system is currently not set up to build kernel modules.
    Please install the Linux kernel "header" files matching the current kernel
    for adding new hardware support to the system.
    The distribution packages containing the headers are probably:
    kernel-devel kernel-devel-5.2.6-200.fc30.x86_64

    [root@localhost yum.repos.d]# modinfo vboxdrv
    modinfo: ERROR: Module vboxdrv not found.

    For the first question, they give you the answer. While this article is somewhat dated, it's still accurate, it goes into making sure your kernel and kernel-devel files are in sync. (I believe Fedora will install headers with kernel-devel)

    The original article mentions the PAE kernel, I don't even know if they still have that, but the issue is the kernel and kernel-header files have to be in sync.
