I run a Gentoo system in VirtualBox, hosted on my Gentoo system.

The VM is my experimental system, compiled almost exclusively with clang.

Since the latest VirtualBox 5.0.2, everything works fine except for graphics resizing and being told
Code:
VBoxCLient: Failed to connect to the VirtualBox kernel service, rc=VERR_ACCESS_DENIED


Copy/Paste works, the mouse works, keyboard works, but the screen does not resize and I see these notifications.

I finally discovered that the user I was logging into was not a member of the group vboxguest.

Once I fixed that, all was well again!
