I'm running VirtualBox on an XP host and I have installed FreeBSD 7.2 using xfce as my window manager. Everything works fine except for the monitor resolution. I can only access the old standard ones: 640 x 480 -- 1600 x 1200. The problem is I'd like to run VirtualBox as full screen on a 1680 x 1050 res monitor. I've tried the following
- VirtualManage.exe setextradata BSD7.2-Mk2 GUI/MaxGuestResolution 1680x1050x24 (along with several other variants in resolution and bit-depth.
- Editing /etc/X11/xorg.conf under the
Modes "1680x1050"(along with variants).
I can't seem to make this work and I can't tell whether it is a limitation in VirtualBox, FreeBSD, X, xfce or a combination.
