Virtualbox video driver compatible with Xorg 1.19.5 available

We just merged a pull-request to provide the Xorg driver for Virtualbox compatible with Xorg 1.19 since the official Guest Additions only supports Xorg up to 1.18 for illumos distributions. The driver was compiled from the VirtualBox 5.2.0 source.

The package x11/server/xorg/driver/xorg-video-vboxvideo is now available in the repository. It should be installed automatically with further updates as it is part of the xorg-video metapackage.

Note that you still need to install the Guest Additions.

After installation the Xorg log should read:
