Hi Guys,

Hit a bump !!!!

Oracle Linux x86-64 installed successfully via Oracle VM box.

Clicked on 'Install Guest Additions'.

Ran VboxLinuxAdditions.run to install the Guest machine on Linux. It Failed and in error log (/var/log/vboxinstall.log) got the below error:-

Error: Unable to find sources for current Linux Kernel. Specify KERN_DIR=<directory> and run again

Looking upto Google i found I need to update Linux headers , in doing so get +'bash: apt-get : command not found'+ which I am not able to understand.

Any assistance is appreciated.

Cheers

Legend
