[solved] Problems with GNOME (X-Server) in VirtualBox

Recommended Posts

Hello, everyone,

I installed Funtoo as a guest system in VirtualBox.

I have the Funtoo installation according to the instructions https://www.funtoo.org/Install/Introduction

ego profile mix-in +gfxcard-vmware

so far through.
I'm working through GNOME following the guide https://www.funtoo.org/GNOME_First_Steps#A_few_finishing_touches.

root # emerge -auDN @world
root # emerge gnome

root # rm /etc/motd

# We always try and start X on a static VT. The various DMs normally default
# to using VT7. If you wish to use the xdm init script, then you should ensure
# that the VT checked is the same VT your DM wants to use. We do this check to
# ensure that you haven't accidentally configured something to run on the VT
# in your /etc/inittab file so that you don't get a dead keyboard.

# What display manager do you use ?
# NOTE: If this is set in /etc/rc.conf, that setting will override this one.

root # rc-update add dbus default
root # rc-update add elogind default

root # reboot

root # /etc/init.d/xdm start

Unfortunately I only have a black window with a blinking cursor!

Sorry for my bad English, my mother tongue is German.

How can I get the problem solved?

Kind regards,
