I'm trying to change the resolution of a linux console (under VirtualBox). However I don't have the VESA BIOS extension installed. Grub tells me this much when I run vbeprobe. It seems the graphics driver for Virtual Box doesn't include a VESA interface.
I also ran dmesg and it confirms no VESA BIOS is ever loaded.
Can I do something about this? This is a major turn down for me and will probably make me give up on VirtualBox (and now that I was getting all excited about switching from VMWare).
