I give an easier path.

First go the Oracle VM VirtualBox page and download the latest version for Oracle Virtual Box, Fedora rpm i386 for 32 bit and / or amd64 for 64 bit.

Let the file download.

Open the Terminal and write either : su password ( to become root) than yum install binutils gcc make patch libgomp glibc-headers glibc-devel kernel-headers kernel-devel dkms

Or sudo yum install binutils gcc make patch libgomp glibc-headers glibc-devel kernel-headers kernel-devel dkms

After the files have installed, install the virtualbox rpm file directly with open and install.

Build the module as root su /etc/init.d/vboxdrv setup or sudo /etc/init.d/vboxdrv setup - However the first one is more likely to work. You should use sudo only if you are system administrator. Check settings, users, to see if you are administrator.

Then become vboxuser, like described above

usermod -a -G vboxusers username username is your name That;s all.

Don't forget to download the extension pack too, it might be useful if you want to insert a usb to your os in the virtualbox. The extension pack is installed by virtualbox, it works on all platforms.
