Description (last modified by frank) (diff)

Host Windows XP SP3 Guest Geexbox 1.1 ( ftp://ftp.proxad.net/pub/Distributions_Linux/GeeXboX/releases/1.1/geexbox-generator-1.1.i386.tar.gz)

I have been using virtuabox 1.5.0 to run Geexbox with absolutely no problems, even managing to run the usb remote control. However since I have upgraded to 1.6 as soon as Geexbox loads up its window (as opposed to its loading console elements) the screen is moving up and down making it unusable. I have tried changing the resolution settings of the geexbox iso with no luck

Thanks for all the help in advance! Alex

I got no idea why 1.6 ignore the resolution change and jump back to bootup's resolution, there must be something goes wrong :<

Replying to AndCycle:

the Session Information shows up correct information about Screen Resolution, but it doesn't fit the window, this must be a bug.

AndCycle Are there any steps I need to take for them to fix it?

comment:4 Changed 6 years ago by AndCycle

currently I got only one way to avoid this problem,
that's take ywrap away from kernel parameter,
it's at geexbox/packages/syslinux/config/isolinux.cfg
and replace all "video=vesafb:ywrap,mtrr" to "video=vesafb"
I have post this bug at  http://virtualbox.org/ticket/1692

oops, by the way, you have to build it from source or just kick in GRUB to modify this every boot
