VirtualBox guest additions install fails
Closed, InvalidPublic


I installed solus on VB successfully, however I couldn't install VBoxGuestAdditions.

I found this in the logs

cat /var/log/VBoxGuestAdditions.log failed: Look at /var/log/vboxadd-install.log to find out what went wrong. failed: Please check that you have gcc, make, the header files for your Linux kernel and possibly perl installed..

other logs

cat /var/log/vboxadd-install.log

/opt/VBoxGuestAdditions-5.1.4/src/vboxguest-5.1.4/build_in_tmp: line 67: make: command not found
