Hi, I'm running Gentoo with basic installation on virtualbox as desktop. I set up almost everything except X, resolution doesn't change with window resizing(maximizing). Installation was made with handbook, guest additions were installed as said in documentation. X.org.log. make.conf. What I need to do to solve this problem[/url]?

Your link to make.conf above didn't work, you can post that here in code tags though, it's not many lines.

Your X.org.log looks okay to me. If you want to test it you could install a window manager as suggested in the wiki at https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/Xorg/Guide#Using_startx ie.

Code:
emerge x11-wm/twm x11-terms/xterm
and run startx. If you see workspaces your X server is configured correctly, in which case you can close the windows and remove the testing packages
Code:
emerge -C x11-wm/twm x11-terms/xterm
and move on with installation of a desktop environment.

I use xfce or sometimes lxde in vms where I need a virtual de, both are light, xfce is better documented and a good start https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/Xfce/Guide
