Install VirtualBox Guest Additions for CentOS 6

1) Make sure the computer has network connection
2) mkdir rpm
3) cd rpm

Location of RPMForge for CentOS:
Download the rpmforge-release package. Choose one of the two links below, selecting to match your host's architecture. If you are unsure of which one to use you can check your architecture with the command uname -i


4) wget
5) rpm --import
6) rpm -i rpmforge-release-0.5.3-1.el6.rf.i686.rpm
7) yum install dkms
8) y
9) Devices -> Insert Guest Additions CD image...
10) mount -t iso9660 /dev/dvd1 /media
11) cd /media
12) sh ./
13) It will complain of missing kernel-devel-x..., do a yum install kernel-devel-x... whatever version it is.
14) sh ./

Now you can use commands such as, vboxmanage guestcontrol
