Unable to use vb-2.0 with fedora f9 guest

Guest type: other Host type: other


I install a fedora f9 i386 guest in a f9 x86_64 host. I can't use it, because when the guest starts, the screen size is too tall. I can't resize it. If I choose fullscreen mode, it has scrollbars, but they don't work!

I can't get to the bottom of the screen (which is cutoff) to go through the initial dialogs (setup a user account, setup time server, etc.).

Duplicate of #1854. The guest just uses a screen resolution which cannot be changed from the host because the Xorg guest driver does not work for Fedora9 yet. The scrollbar issue can be changed when starting VirtualBox like this:

VirtualBox -startvm VM_NAME -rmode image

Using this mode, the scrollbars are usable.
