sudo pkg info virtualbox-ose-additions
First of all - let me say GhostBSD is great! Looking at the website I was a bit skeptical, but once I installed it I was very impressed. It's quite polished, is simpler than PC-BSD and looks much better. Just what I've been wanting for a clean desktop FreeBSD installation I'm surprised PC-BSD is still touted as the go-to install for desktop FreeBSD.
The problem I have is I cant get GhostBSD to expand to fullscreen within virtualbox. I'm using virtualbox 4.3.20 and while GhostBSD 4.0 installs and works fine, when I fullscreen the window, Ghost still displays in a smaller window. I found the virtualbox-ose-additions are pre-installed on Ghost. I also tried upgrading the virtualbox-ose-additions, tried 'xorg -configure' again, tried upgrading the xserver (which actually broke it completely - I get a blank screen now). But I'm interested in suggestions on how to get Ghost to render full screen.
GhostBSD doesn't support my wifi card on my laptop so unfortunately virtualbox is the only way I can run it. I'll be all set if I get it to run full screen.
If Ghost full screen works in your virtualbox, can you please tell me the virtualbox version number?
