Package: virtualbox-guest-additions-iso
Version: 4.2.10-2
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,
I am setting up a new Centos 6.4 VM, and I tried to install the most recent 
guest additions. I installed Centos from a live-cd, added development tools,
added some other packages (I am installing Oracle 12 on this machine), and
then ran the installation CD of virtualbox guest additions. It failed to
build the OpenGL support module, and the log ended with an error while
compiling vboxvideo_drm.c

/tmp/vbox.0/vboxvideo_drm.c:110: error: unknown field 'reclaim_buffers' specified in initializer
/tmp/vbox.0/vboxvideo_drm.c:110: warning: initialization from incompatible pointer type

I just checked with the guest additions from 4.1.8; I had successfully
installed those in other machines, but they also failed to install on
this Centos VM.

Thought you'd like to know,
