Description

After updating the OS of an Oracle Linux guest OS, the screen resolution becomes limited to 640x480, 800x600 and 1024x768 and cannot be set to a higher resolution.

To reproduce the result: 1) download the Oracle DB Developer VM image 2) import and start the Linux guest VM 3) review the screen resolution options 4) set screen resolution to a high resolution option (e.g. 1600x1200) 5) shutdown VM 6) update the guest OS using the standard OS update process 7) restart the VM 8) review screen resolution options on the Linux guest 9) display options should show only 640x480, 800x600 and 1024x768
