A few quick updates – Contrary to the item in the content regarding downgrading the kernel for Centos 6 and 7, you can now acquire the bleeding edge virtualbox guest additions, packaged separately from the virtualbox application package. As of this writing, the latest is here: https://www.virtualbox.org/download/testcase/VBoxGuestAdditions_5.2.1-118868.iso published on October 30 2017.

It’s also worth pointing out that while not many people have need of the i386 architecture release of Centos 7, there is currently and there are no plans for an EPEL 7 repository for i386, which makes it very tedious to build the virtualbox additions, as you’ll need to install and in some cases build each dependency independently. For those interested in going this route, the epel package builds exist absent the repository metadata, here https://buildlogs.centos.org/c7-epel/ as discussed here https://lists.fedoraproject.org/archives/list/epel-devel@lists.fedoraproject.org/thread/OJVTY5MWCZXPLKACU6MPRRRHJCUN5JE4/
