Ticket #1087 (closed defect: fixed)
Varying screen resolution not handled well (may be related to xrandr 1.2)
|Reported by:||ugemkow||Owned by:|
We are using VBox OSE on Fedora 7 as host, Windows XP as guest with guest additions. We added randr-1.2 enabled drivers to Fedora 7.
When using VBox on systems with varying screen resolution (Notebooks with internal panel / external display), there are some problems:
- When starting VBox when the resolution is high (i.e 1600x1200), stopping it and later restarting it when the system has a lower resolution (i.e. 1400x1050), VBOX tries to restore the greater resolution and fails. It then displays scroll bars which are not moveable. Minimizing the window and restoring it makes VBox usable again.
- When VBox is in full screen mode with the higher resolution, stopped and restarted when the system has a lower resolution, this fails completely and in some cases even crashes the X server (which is also a X/driver bug of course).
