Re: vbox supports gnome3

Is it possible to make Fedora Remix with VBox additions installed so that when you start it in VBox GNOME 3 works? Has anybody tried that? I'm project leader for Fusion Linux and if people find this feature useful we will build it in Fusion.

After that, the Gnome Shell started up, and I was able to resize the window to be more what I wanted.

I guess I should add that I am running Fedora 14 x86_64 and VirtualBox 4.08, not VirtualBox-OSE. My Fedora 15 guest is also 64 bit.

My machine is based on an AMD Phenom 9850 with 8 GB RAM, of which I dedicated one processor and 2 GB RAM to the virtual machine. I don't know if having IO-APIC checked makes a difference in this.
I used 3 cores for my VM.


gnome3, supports, vbox
