    Default Backtrack 5 and Orical VM virtual box

    Im having some problems with the display on Backtrack 5 in my Vbox. When i run it, and maximize it the vm , the Linux display doesn't go full screen just the emulator does however. And when I go to view, full screen, the display is distorted and not a good resolution. Is there any way i can fix this?

    Make sure the guest drivers are installed.
    I would contact the guys from VirtualBox. Also an alternative would be using Backtrack inside VMware.
    Back|track giving machine guns to monkeys since 2007 !

    Yes, and after you have installed the guest additions, you also have to go in "view > switch to scale mode" (or some other mode), then it will automatically re-scale to your VM box window.

    hi
    if you are using ORACLE-VIRTUALBOX: have you install a guest additions?
    ...if not:
    root@bt:~#apt-get update && apt-get dist-upgrade ###update your distro#########################
    root@bt:~# prepare-kernel-sources
    root@bt:~# cd /usr/src/linux ###############need for headers of kernel###################
    root@bt:~# cp -rf include/generated/* include/linux/

    now install a guest-additions:
    in "" frame virtualbox "" devices> install guest-additions
    when finished NEED reboot a VM!
