[vbox-dev] frontend with no display/framebuffer

Wed Sep 17 10:03:40 GMT 2014

Hi, guys, I recently build my frontend which based on VBoxHeadless.exe

except that I do not create any framebuffer for it.

When I start my frontend it got the following error output. 

It looks like the vga device failed to start. 

Am I missing something? Is the framebuffer object needed anyway?


Best regards for you
