Headless VirtualBox rdp problem

Description (last modified by frank) (diff)

I think I found strange behavior of VirtualBox in some circumstances.


  1. Host Linux CentOS 5.4
  2. Guest Linux CentOS 5.4 with VirtualBox Additions installed.

If you start Guest VM in headless mode with rdp, guest VM X11 server starts only if guest VM file /etc/X11/xorg.conf doesn't contain Modes part of Subsection Display. If Modes section is included X11 server will not start. But if your /etc/X11/xorg.conf doesn't contain Modes part X11 server starts, rdp to guest VM works but in resolution 1600x1200 and rpd client is not able to scale to required resolution(mstsc nor rdesktop).

Situation changes if you change vboxvideo to vesa, then Modes section with requested values works, but unfortunately screen refresh is slower.

Is it right behaviour?
