In Fedora, I am unable to open the operating system. When I open any OS it gives an error "RTR3InitEx failed with rc=-1912 (rc=-1912)"

The error message is

Maybe guestadition was not installed on virtualbox preferences, install it and run this command on terminal

sudo /sbin/rcvboxdrv setup

after install run this

sudo usermod -G vboxusers -a username

Install akmod-VirtualBox. It will manage and compile the needed kernel modules regardless of version used.
