Default Linux Mint on Virtualbox

Please Login to Remove!

Hey guys. I did the unthinkable and removed Ubuntu as my main OS and went with Vista Ultimate. Thing is.....I'm a Windows IT guy, so I have to stay in the game (the virus and security game that is). I installed Linux Mint 4.0 on Innotek Virtualbox, but I cannot get the screen resolution to go full screen. I've tried installing the guest additions, but somehow it won't work. Anyone have an idea?

Would be great to know _why_ the installation of the guest additions failed. Without, the system will not work that nice in virtualbox.

I know, I know....but I have to stay in the game as Windows is my bread and butter. I went ahead and did a dual boot and put PCLinuxOS 2007 on 25gigs of the drive. Vista is in the back alley now unless I get an itch to game online.

Nah, I'm back in the Linux seat and feel so comfortable with PCLinuxOS 2007 (such a long name). I never had a Virtualbox issue when running inside Linux, just when doing it inside Windows.

Default Re: Vista / VB

Why not just install Vista in VirtualBox in Linux?

Nah, I need to game every so often and there is no 3d support in virtualbox.
