Default Xorg configuration in VirtualBox

Hi there,

I've installed xorg and kde on 8.2 under VirtualBox.
I've enabled hald, dbusd, kdm4 and local_startup in rc.d.

Do I need a particular driver for VirtualBox - I know one is required for FreeBSD under VMWare?

Also, XOrg -configure fails. It probes a number of vendor drivers then decides "No Devices to Configure" - which is why I ask about the driver.

thanks

There are virtualbox guest additions (available in ports) that will should you a video driver that works.

Thank you - whereabouts should I be looking in ports? Under X11 or somewhere else?

I've been looking at the standard setup for KDE4 in the handbook, but it doesn't kick in at all:
Quote:
local_startup="${local_startup} /usr/local/kde4/etc/rc.d"
kdm4_enable="YES"

Any other reading materials I should be considering? The Handbook is my first port or call obviously, but X is a black art.

I recently found this and all you have to do is replace or put it in /etc/X11 or in local in your case, I'm not sure ... but it made lots of things work for me that I could not get to work before. It made font's bigger, solid and true.

Forget my file... Here's the link I got the instructions from.
