Re: Debian in Debian via Virtual box
2010/4/12 James Allsopp <firstname.lastname@example.org>
How have people managed to get debian in virtual box to display with a resolution higher than 800x600. I've tried reinstalling with a higher video memory setting and installing the guest additions. Was finding it difficult to find out if the additions actually installed correctly, so if anyone can help me with that I'd be grateful.
Hi, the first thing you can trry is to set up a shared directory in your
host OS and try to mount it in the guest OS. If it works it means the
additions were successfully installed. Note that after a kernel upgrade
or virtualbox upgrade you should reinstall the additions (it should even
be prompted when you start the VM). Also, what version of Debian are
you running: lenny? squeeze? Any kind of exotic graphic card? (though
that shouldn't matter for the guest display).
Sorry, I replied to Jim instead of the user list ^^
