#10389: Custom VESA mode does not work for 8bit resolution
------------------------------------------------+---------------------------
Reporter: rcs-34 | Type: defect
Status: new | Priority: major
Component: other | Version: VirtualBox 4.1.10
Keywords: VESA, Custom mode, 8bit, 1920x1200 | Guest type: Linux
Host type: Linux |
------------------------------------------------+---------------------------
I'm trying to add custom VESA mode 1920x1200x8. I'm using command

{{{
VBoxManage setextradata "Modest" "CustomVideoMode1" "1920x1200x8"
}}}
and the line
{{{
<ExtraDataItem name="CustomVideoMode1" value="1920x1200x8"/>
}}}
is created in Modest.vbox correctly. However, when I try to start the
virtual machine VB gives me the
{{{
VERR_VGA_INVALID_CUSTOM_MODE
}}}
error. Note, that 1920x1200x16 and 1920x1200x24 work very fine, but I'm
interested in 8bit colors.
