vboxvideo fails to auto-load on Ubuntu 12.10 Guest

On Ubuntu 12.10 beta, the virtualbox 3D driver fails to auto-load. Unless its manually added to /etc/modules.

Since vboxvideo does not export modalias, udev does not know how to find the correct driver.

Ubuntu 12.10 runs 1.13 and this one is not yet supported by the VirtualBox Guest Additions. And that's the actual reason why the drm module does not load.

  • Status changed from new to closed
  • Resolution set to invalid

Actually by design (of the kernel graphics subsystem) vboxvideo.ko is not supposed to autoload. It is loaded manually by X.Org when needed.
