[vbox-dev] IFramebuffer - requestResize vram question

   https://www.virtualbox.org/sdkref/interface_i_framebuffer.html -
requestResize function says that in direct mode the Vram pointer content
can be blitted into the window showing the display.

Is this vram pointer pointing to a shared memory location accessible by
another process ? I just tried to access it and it segfaults.

Is my understanding of the API incorrect ? If I want to have the display in
another process - can I access the vram pointer directly - instead of
creating a shared buffer and passing it in the IFramebuffer implementation ?
