Where config files are placed depends on the host OS and VirtualBox version. Typically $HOME/.VirtualBox/VirtualBox.xml See section 10.1 of the manual for details, and an explanation of how to decode "$HOME".

I have just upgraded to 23 from 22 in a virtual machine using dnf as described in the Fedora Wiki, which went rather smoothly for me.

After manually installing the Guest Additions, the features "seemless windows" and "automatic resize of the guest desktop" don't work (the respective options in the views menu are greyed out).

The VBox kernel modules are built ok, but I get a warning saying: "unsupported pre-release version of X.Org server installed. Not
installing the X.Org drivers."

The X log says that there is X.Org X Server installed, which is a pre-release. I guess downgrading might cure the problem, but how?

Any advice?

In the default deployment of a VDI, the VDI (or equivalent file) is readable and writeable by the UNIX user running VirtualBox

For people using iSCSI, the iSCSI credentials are stored in a configuration file that is readable by the UNIX user who runs VirtualBox

In both cases, this means that the UNIX user can modify the raw VDI filesystem contents, possibly modifying scripts that would run with root privileges or just breaking the VDI in some way that requires extra support effort.

Is there any way to have the VDI file or settings owned by a system user (e.g. a user called vbox) such that they would only be accessible to the hypervisor and the user can only interact with the VM through the GUI?

I am using VirtualBox in Mac OSX. I have a guest OS that writes to serial port. I want to view the output on the serial port. Since I do not have physical COM1, I have enabled host-pipe to write to a local domain socket. What tool can I use to view the serial port output?
