Ticket #375 (new enhancement)
Integrating VirtualBox Linux additions upstream (X.org)
|Reported by:||Technologov||Owned by:|
hi all !
I believe that there is a sense in pushing VBox Linux additions into upstream X.org: namely the VBox graphics driver and VBox Mouse driver.
By doing so, we will eventually have VBox supported out-of-the-box even on LiveCDs, and during install stage !
Additionally, by going this way, we can receive support for BSD and Solaris guest additions from open-source community for free. (Solaris and BSD UNIX uses X.org too)
Inability to change the VBox graphics and mouse drivers interface between host and guest. This means that future versions of VBox must stay compatible with 1.3.x in this regard in API level.
What do you think about it? Do you want me contacting X.org ?
