Description (last modified by frank) (diff)
I have a win7/ubuntu10.10 dual-boot. I installed virtualbox on win7 (host) I followed these instructions http://chaits.accosted.net/?p=54 and created an instance out of an existing linux partition. after I installed vb additions and extension, everything worked great in virtualbox. when i tried to boot into linux, the windows manager didn't lunch. xorg.conf was overwritten.
Currently I have to sitch xorg.conf file manually if i want a graphical interface. i documented my experience here.
