thank you for your answer, but that workaround does not work :/.
If I boot the VM with 1MB video ram, X fails to init. I just get a black
screen. I also tried to disable the splash, same effect.
And the X log is getting more interesting:
(EE) VBoxVideo(0): Failed to obtain the last resolution requested by the
(EE) VBoxVideo(0): Unable to set up virtual screen size of 1280x768 with
1024Kb of video memory. Please increase the video memory size.
I've included the entire X log.
