Unable to install VirtualBox-guest

I installed VirtualBox from the terminal using

sudo yum install VirtualBox

But need VirtualBox guest Additions for shared folder access of the host system. Tried installing from terminal using

sudo yum install VirtualBox-guest

enountered the following dependency error

Loaded plugins: langpacks, refresh-packagekit

---> Package VirtualBox-guest.x86_64 0:4.2.16-1.fc19 will be installed

You could try using --skip-broken to work around the problem
You could try running: rpm -Va --nofiles --nodigest

It comes out that either i could install VirtualBox or VirtualBox-guest however i need both. Even after i tried installing VirtualBox guest additions using the image downloaded using VirtualBox menu command, still got some modprobe error

(modprobe vboxguest failed)

None of the method seem to work. Are there some kernel issues here ?
