Ticket #1074 (closed defect: obsolete)
Full screen mode does not use maximum resolution (with workaround)

Description (last modified by frank) (diff)
We are using VBox on a Linux Fedora 7 host with Windows XP as guest. We are using displays with a resolution of 1600x1200.
The following problem with Full screen mode occurs:
When using full screen mode after installation, the guest only uses a resolution of 1400x1050, the rest of the display remains black. The first attached log file shows this (wrong mode in vmmdevRequestDisplayChange). This also happens after several toggles of Full-screen and back.
The following workaround works: When setting the maximum resolution in the XP guest (Display -> Settings) one time to 1600x1200, then after this the full screen switching always works - also after a restart of the VM (see second attached log file). Nothing changed on the hosts screen resolution between these two log files
We are using xrandr 1.2 enabled video drivers but I have no idea whether this has some effect on these problems.
