Can't change display settings in an Oracle Linux 6.5 guest

Reported by: whosnick Owned by:
Component: other Version: VirtualBox 6.0.0
Keywords: Display Cc:
Guest type: Linux Host type: Windows


I recently updated to v 6.0.0 r 127566 on Windows 10. All other guests (Debian Linux distros & earlier Windows versions) work fine, except Oracle Linux 6.5. Display becomes garbled when trying to change the resolution after installing the Guest Addition.

  1. It's usually better and faster, if issues get first addressed in the  VirtualBox forums, a lot more eyes there. More than 95% of the issues are resolved over there, which keeps the developers focusing on the bug fixes and enhancements, and there is no need for another ticket to keep track of. For example, yours is most probably not a bug and someone from the developers has to deal with it and close it as "Invalid".
  1. You were supposed to follow these steps when you filed the bug, and provide a VBox.log:

    Attach a (full) log file ("Machine" menu/"Show Log" in the main VirtualBox Manager window) straight away to save time for you and for us. The log file contains a lot of useful information about both the host andthe guest systems as well as information about what happened during a particular machine run. Please do not cut and paste it.

So, if you can, please open a new thread in the  VirtualBox on Linux Guests section of the forums. Please be sure to mention that you came from the bug tracker and include the ticket number.

Take also a look at the Known Issues in the " Discuss the 6.0.0 release".
