Oracle VM VirtualBox™


Hints for FreeBSD as a guest

For a change to /etc/rc.conf to become effective: restart FreeBSD.

If guest additions will be installed: set the guest to use VBoxSVGA.

For automatic configuration of

Xorg -configure

– then, to tell whether the video driver was automatically recognised:

grep vboxvideo /root/

With a good configuration file in place and in use: the View menu of VirtualBox can be used for automatic resizing. With that option enabled, a change to the size of the VirtualBox window should cause a change to the size of the display in the FreeBSD guest.
