  1. Make the VirtualBox guest additions available to the OS by clicking Devices->Install Guest Additions.

    RA-Oracle_Linux_6_64bit-Configure_OS-install guest additions

  2. Mount the virtual CD-Rom created by VirtualBox.
    [root@collabn1 ~]# mount /dev/cdrom /media/cdrom
     mount: block device /dev/sr0 is write-protected, mounting read-only
  3. Install the VirtualBox Guest Additions. The error related to the step Installing the Window System drivers is ok to ignore, it will not appear on newest VBox versions.
    [root@collabn1 ~]# sh /media/cdrom/

     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-uek-devel-2.6.39-400.17.1.el6uek.x86_64
