Fedora 20 VirtualBox Guest Additions Install

I would like to set up a Fedora guest machine in VirtualBox. So far I have gone through the OS install wizard from the file Fedora-Live-Desktop-x86_64-20-1.iso and run sudo yum update after the install process finished. Next, I tried to install the virtualbox guest additions by inserting the disk VBoxGuestAdditions.iso and running VBoxLinuxAdditions.run.

This is the error I received.

The headers for the current running kernel were not found. If the following
module compilation fails then this could be the reason.
The missing package can be probably installed with
yum install kernel-devel-3.13.7-200.fc20.x86_64

Building the main Guest Additions module                   [FAILED]

I am using VirtualBox version 4.3.8 r92456.
