Hello pals, Fedora is installed in VirtualBox 5.1.14, I had problems installing GuestAdditions
Host:windows 10
I have installed

dnf install gcc kernel-devel kernel-headers dkms make bzip2 perl
[peter@peter-pc ~]$ sudo dnf install elfutils-libelf-devel

In fedora 25 and kernel 4.8 all is perfect

Outputs of terminal

[peter@peter-pc ~]$ cat /var/log/VBoxGuestAdditions.log 
Created symlink /etc/systemd/system/ → /usr/lib/systemd/system/vboxadd.service. 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..

How do we do that
Run 'make oldconfig && make prepare' on kernel src to fix it.";
