#629: VirtualBox guest kernel module gets loaded after display manager
----------------------+----------------------------------
 Reporter:  dannomac  |       Type:  System Defect
   Status:  new       |   Priority:  major
Milestone:  9.1       |  Component:  System Configuration
  Version:            |   Keywords:  VirtualBox
----------------------+----------------------------------
 Running PCBSD 9.1-BETA1 I found that the kernel module for a !VirtualBox
 guest gets loaded after the display server starts. This causes pointer
 integration (vboxmouse) and the VirtualBox video (vboxvideo) drivers to
 not work.

 The solution I found is to either add vboxguest to the list of
 fastboot_earlyrc startup files or add 'vboxguest_load="YES"' to
 /boot/loader.conf.  This causes the vboxguest kernel module to be loaded
 before GDM starts, making vboxvideo and vboxmouse happy.
