I'm trying out arch linux on my win7 host on a VB and I have it installed just fine, the problem is that when I try to use gnome-shell it goes back to fallback mode because it detects that my video drivers aren't capable of rendering it. Since it's a VM I know it's not detecting my actual video card but I'd like to know if it's possible to get full 2d/3d video support so I can test the OS properly in the VM. I installed the
virtualbox-archlinux-additions package and I added the
vboxguest vboxsf vboxvideo modules to my rc.conf file and it's working fine I believe.
Can you guys help me with this? I'm not very good with linux my previous experience has been with Ubuntu and Fedora so please be gentle :)
