Installing VirtualBox Guest Additions on Centos7

Apparently in latest VB releases the Guest Additions have to be built directly on the image.

This of course is a pain, because OOTB the Centos7 image doesn't contain the development tools. SO you get a message like "building the main Guest Additions module Failed"

this fixed the problem:

sudo yum install gcc kernel-devel-$(uname -r)
