    Hello,

    I have been experimenting with Virtual Box recently, and for some reason I decided to install Linux MInt on it.
    I experimented a bit and I am able to activate a variety of features like cop paste, drag and drop, extra RAM and video RAM.
    According to various website, when working with LInux MINT, you need to activate a GuestAddition Session addition, and also turn on 3D acceleration.
    I can activate everything except the 3D accelerating and the system boots fine, while getting the hardware acceleration not available error.

    But, as soon as I turn on the 3D acceleration, Right after I enter my password, it turns in to a black screen. It does not respond after that.
    Any ideas as to why it bugs?
    Thanks

    Joseph
