Default Installing VirtualBox in RHEL5

Install these two packages and you should be good to go:

kernel-devel - Necessary
kernel-headers - Good to have just in case

What it is looking for in this is the kernel-devel package which is required
for virtual box to build it's custom kernel modules. - Dustin

I do minimal installations, and the only required packages to
build VirtualBox are gcc and kernel-devel.

Did you know you can add a yum repo for VirtualBox? Save this
file in /etc/yum.repos:

wget http://download.virtualbox.org/virtualbox/rpm/rhel/virtualbox.repo

Then import the key for the repo:

wget http://download.virtualbox.org/virtualbox/debian/oracle_vbox.asc
rpm --import oracle_vbox.asc && rm -f oracle_vbox.asc

c
