resolution 1024x768 PCBSD guest

Postby mfaridi » 23. Oct 2010, 09:27

I install last virtualbox on Windows XP SP3 and install PC-BSD 8.1 with VirtualBOX .everything is good and PC-BSD work good and great , but I have big problem with resolution and and resolution is 800x600 and I can not change it 1024x768 or higher , I change Xorg.conf and put on it 1024x768 . but still I can not change it . and it is 800x600 , so I do not know what I must do , I see some document and I install virtualbox guest addintion from ports in PC-BSD , , but still I can not change resolution and use high resolution .
Do I need reconfigure xorg after install virtualbox-ose-additions and make new xorg.conf ?
.
My mainboard has onboard VGA and it is Intell and I use 128MB of RAM for VGA and enable 3D Acceleration in VirtualBOX for PC-BSD

Since you installed the guest additions you probably need to remove any mode commands in the xorg.conf file. This usually makes VirtualBox refuse to change the resolution. Then use the mouse click and drag or the hot keys to change the screen in and out of full screen.

I must remove last xorg and reconfigure Xorg again and make new Xorg.conf

Actually under normal use you should be able to comment out any line in the xorg that defines a screen resolution (mode) or default mode setting.
If VirtualBox see that you have defined these it will not load the auto-resize portion.

If you have problems post your xorg.conf and I will see where the problem might be.

Try pressing the host+g toggle to turn on auto-resize and then host+f toggle to go in and out of full screen.
What happens when you go to full screen? Does it show full screen with black areas around the guest?

Hint: host=right Ctrl key unless you have changed the default.

Sorry I just looked at http://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/Guest_OSes
PC-BSD 8.1 Works, no Additions available Requires VT-x or AMD-V hardware virtualization support.


You will need to set this using modes as you don't have the ability to install guest additions unless PC-BSD supports it and even then they would need to support this as we would have no way to know what they have done.
