Ok, installed 5.2.26 from the VB website, nothings changed.
Maybe Nvidia proprietary driver or kernel thing…? I don’t know if i’m able to fix screen tearing without prop. Nvidia driver, and my system doesn’t necessarily boot with for example LTS kernel. It’s a bit complicated.
Virtualbox is not supposed to use your nvidia driver.
Now you can use vmware graphic drivers in virtualbox, maybe you can try that.
“from the vb website”
Use the repo…
What are the graphic and ram options you use before launching the machine ?
In my case I have stopped using virtualbox, now it’s vmware (it’s easy to use it for free), but sadly whonix wont work in vmware.
I think that OP has to change something in options. I have never seen such buggy graphical mess before, it’s just incredible, I’m really interested of what is happening, not enough ram, or not enough memory video, I don’t know but that is clearly something related in the vm config.
I don’t know about the settings, because i basically always use the same settings and no such problem has been before. I give 6GB RAM, 2 cores of my CPU and recommended amount of graphics memory or more. Other settings are at default.
And it’s the same with all isos, it’s been like that a while now.
Yes, Nvidia isn’t related to this, but yeah, if it wasn’t for the screen tearing, i would’ve ripped that Nvidia card out allready. In fact i tried that a while ago, but didn’t find a proper fix for the tearing problem with the integrated HD 4600, so… Have to look into that a bit more some day. Otherwise that Intel GPU is enough for me, i don’t play games. Bought the damn Nvidia card because it has HDMI which i needed at the time.
Bet that Intel s integrated GPU can do the job by itself with YT & stuff alike, It s what I mostly do on my end.
Think that with all Linux s updates/upgrades, loads of apps/dependencies are getting screwed up big time as of a little while now. Guess that I ve never seen this . Also on Debain/Debian inspired distros.
Hmmm, this is interesting… I did remove the Nvidia card from my machine, booted up and checked the Virtualbox issue. Didn’t expect any change, but it has changed a bit still, now the screen goes black when i hit CTRL+F.
It seems to be known issue with i3 WM. Floating mode didn’t help for some reason. I’ll look into it tomorrow.
Btw, i don’t know why, but now there is no screen tearing. I’ll try that fix, if it comes back. Thanks.
