in my Gentoo guest on virtualbox, i don't be able to run cube animation effect for change desktop.
I installed xf86-video-virtualbox-5.1.22, virtualbox-modules-5.1.22, guest-additions-5.1.22, i add user to a vboxguest group and to a video group, and modprobe vboxvideo, vboxdrv, vboxpci.
then i run
and i get xorg.conf file, in which there is "modesetting" in a "Device" section by default.
With modesetting KDE run, buti if i set OPENGL in kde setup i don't have any effetc (cube, translucence, etc...); if i set XRender I have translucence but not Cube effect.
Instead, if i set vboxvideo in a "Device" section of xorg.conf, X don't run and i get this error in /var/log/Xorg.0.log:
|vboxvideo: kernel driver found, not loading |
In my HD installation (no virtualbox), with nvidia driver, i have no problem and all runs fine.
