      • Hi Arnel,

        Check step 4. gcc is installed as dependency on there.

    2. Any reason step 5 omits Fedora 31?

        No, sorry, it’s typo. Updated the guide.

    3. You sir, are a gentlemen and a scholar (assuming you’re male that is). I’ve been banging my head on the desk for a day now trying to get the silly kernel modules to install on Fedora 31 on kernel 5.4.8-200. Unfortunately, the most recent headers released were for 5.4.7-200, and my system just didn’t want to use them.

      I had installed just by downloading the .rpm and doinf a ‘dnf localinstall rpm.file’. It all installed great, but just wouldn’t start new machines w/o those modules compiled and installed.

      Following your guide worked like a champ! It even found and upgraded my current VirtualBox install, and the modules compiled flawlessly.

      I buy you many virtual beers sir!

    5. I have found that with CentOS 8 (streaming) the proper KERN_DIR is given by the same command as Fedora.

      The -`uname -m` at the end is not needed.
