Description Guangyuan Yang freebsd_committer 2021-06-12 05:04:21 UTC
13.0-RELEASE, virtualbox-ose-additions installed and enabled, seamless mode is working (no need to press the Host key to switch), but the window will not resize. I also got this notification upon login:

"
VBoxClient: Failed to register resizing
support, rc=VERR_RESOURCE_BUSY
"

What version of Virtualbox are you using? Additions are the same?

If using Virtualbox 6.1.x, are you using the VBoxSVGA driver? In my tests it's the only one resizing works with.

I know that you get a warning in the UI telling you to use VMSVGA controller, but that's bogus, please ignore that.

OTOH, if you're already doing as I said I'm sorry but I have no clue what the issue could be, it should work.
