Description mvharding 2020-08-06 00:41:46 UTC
If I have 'auto-resize guest display' checked, it no longer seems to actually resize the guest display size. I can resize the display from within the guest, that works fine. I had a Ubuntu 20.04 virtual box where I had not updated the guest additions, and the resize worked fine until I applied the new guest additions.

I think that this happened during the update to 5.2.44, but I am using poudriere to build my packages and have not tried rolling back an individual port yet.

I should mention that if I use the menu to attempt a resize via...
View -> Virtual Screen 1 -> Resize to ...
it does not work, but that menu does reflect the size I see if I change the size within the guest.

The above issues are with Ubuntu guests (18.04 and 20.04). I tried a FreeBSD 12.1 guest and the resize worked properly, using the virtualbox-ose-additions-5.2.44 package. The Ubuntu guests had the guest additions installed via the virtual CDROM.

– should probably be: 

> emulators/virtualbox-ose-additions

Is the issue reproducible with 6.1.22 or greater? 

For the affected guests, which video driver is set?
