Subject: Owl2 VirtualBox Guest additions

I'm having some trouble getting VirtualBox Guest Additions installed on an
Owl2 VM.  I have installed the kernel headers and I'm using the VirtualBox
image VBoxGuestAdditions_4.1.22.iso.

Here is my script for installing the additions and the error messages:

vagrant!root:~# mount -o loop VBoxGuestAdditions_$VBOX_VERSION.iso /mnt
vagrant!root:~# sh /mnt/
Verifying archive integrity... All good.

The headers for the current running kernel were not found. If the following
module compilation fails then this could be the reason.

Not building the VirtualBox advanced graphics driver as this Linux version
too old to use it.

Are there any suggestions for installing the Guest Additions on Owl2?
