change resolution in virtualbox

Postby mailmaldi » Sat Nov 24, 2007 5:57 pm

I have started daryana in vbox. Since I cant resize , I tried adding the following subsection in the screen section of xorg.conf

SubSection "Display"
Depth 24
Modes "950x680"

But /etc/init.d/gdm stop or ctrl + alt + bksp , isnt actually changing the resolution.

It's CTRL+ALT+"+" to cycle through the available resolutions.
Folding, you know it makes sense.
