I navigate to /media/VBOX... , run the file and get this error in my log file "unable to find the sources of your current kernel.
Specifiy KERN_DIR=<directory> and run make again.
not exactly sure how to do this. any help would be great.
PS I have latest edition of CentOS, I think its 6.3
Some additional questions:
Do you have the kernel headers installed on your computer? Did you ran the installation as root or via sudo?
What was the error you got trying to install rpmforge?
(some advice: first copy the guest additions to a directory on the guest before trying to install them.)
