This follows my previous question, where I installed Debian for the purpose of having a lightweight distro to run virtual machines on. I installed it with just the laptop and admin packages -- not anything graphical.
I've installed VirtualBox and xorg. I cloned a VM from another hard drive, and registered it successfully. When I try to start the device (still from the console) it complains about being unable to create frame buffers. Sorry I can't copy and paste the long error message, but it's not really feasible at this point.
I figure this is because I don't have any window manager of any kind. If possible I would like to keep it that way. I will have no reason to minimize, resize, reposition, or close VirtualBox. I just need the VM to take up my entire screen as if the screen was a window.
What are the minimum requirements to run graphical applications on Linux?
What software do I need to install?
What command would I need to run to get my desired result?
All answers and links will be appreciated!
I wasn't very clear about my something earlier. I'm trying to run it via VBoxSDL. I think it'll lower the requirements. From that page it says...
VBoxSDL does indeed only provide a simple window that contains only the “pure” virtual machine, without menus or other controls to click upon and no additional indicators of virtual machine activity
