Re: graphical desktop in virtualbox


I run VirtualBox 6.1.4 on Win10x64 host. The guest is NetBSD 9.0 amd64, no extensions installed. Using

xrandr --output default --mode 1440x900

in xterm, the VirtualBox window changes to the given resolution, without any prior changes to the X settings.

Best regards:

There were many responses to you original email, but I couldn't
quite figure out if anyone suggested a practical solution to your
problem. I'm interested to know the answer as well, as I also run
NetBSD as a VirtualBox VM.

I didn't think VirtualBox extensions were usable with NetBSD guests,
so I've used a different solution - TigerVNC. It is one of a few
software packages that also works reasonably well on sparc64. If you
need details on how to set it up to run remote X11 session, then drop
me a quick email and I'll give you a copy of my scripts.
