Unhappy solaris 10 - black screen after vbox additions

So I am playing with Solaris 10/09 x86 because I wanted to experience CDE, so I virtualized it.
and installed the virtualbox guest additions, however doing so results in CDE black screening shortly after initializing. Uninstalling the additions resolved the issue, but I really want to get them working..
I am running VirtualBox 6.1 on a Linux host, but I tested with a Windows host too, and the issue persisted.

Anyone know what I must do in order to have virtualbox guest additions working correctly?
