Solve Kali Linux Header Problem ( Virtualbox Guest Addition)

0

There are a lot of Linux operating systems out there that really dope, for me to explore them all huh well it will take me a fortune. Forever I will stay close as possible with Debian base distribution since I deeply in love with it since using Ubuntu 10.10 and as for pentest OS actually I prefer BackBox than other existing pentest OS but as for this day I will write a guide how to solve the problem regarding the Additional guest with Kali for Virtual Box environment. Seriously, there are a few of the guides out there that I have tried but I keep getting the same Linux header error and for a few minutes I figured a way which is working for me and hopefully It will help you guys too.

Step 1: Edit the Sources.list
You need to edit the repository first, but seriously used the official repositories from the Kali, which you can get by visiting their website Here, copy the repositories depending on your Kali release into your sources.list replace it with the existing repositories

leafpad /etc/apt/sources.list

Step 2: Install dependencies
After you have added the official repositories update your package manager

apt-get update
apt-get upgrade -y
apt-get install linux-headers-$(uname -r) -y

Step 3:  Copy the package

cp /media/cdrom/VBoxLinuxAdditions.run /root/Desktop/
cd /root/Desktop/

Make it executable by running below command

chmod +x VBoxLinuxAdditions.run

and then install it

./VBoxLinuxAdditions.run

That its and you are good to go 🙂
