I think you need to install using yum as follows:
yum install gcc
yum install kernel-uek-devel-$(uname -r)
The Guest Additions installer should tell you what headers you are missing and the command to install when it fails.
Thanks for the information. I was able to resolve it though.
Ran +'yum install gcc kernel-devel kernel-headers'+
Hence my query is resolved now.
Just one question - I need to copy text from Windows to Linux Terminal. Is there a command I can type into Linux terminal to enable copy paste from Windows to Linux and vice-versa ?
In your Oracle Linux guest VM, under the Virtual Box Devices ->Shared Clipboard menu option, you can select the bidirectional option to allow copy/paste between the host/guest operating systems. This should work if your Guest Additions software is installed properly.
Copying of the clipboard only works for applications that use a clipboard, which is typically a background application or built into the graphical window manager. In other words, you need to run your terminal session in a X Window terminal application. The text only console does not support the clipboard.
Dude is correct. I assumed that by 'Linux Terminal' the poster meant X Window terminal application.
