Invalid Settings- VboxSVGA on Manjaro.

Hi all, I've been digging through the forums and haven't been able to find anything on this issue. So, I'm trying to run a fork of Android x86 in virtual-box, which requires VboxSVGA to operate. However, I get an invalid settings error I normally don't get on other OS's where I run Vbox.

I assume this has something to do with graphics, and I don't have much experience in that field, so here's my inxi output, so you all can see how everything fits together on my machine:

If anyone knows what might be causing this error, please let me know.

EDIT: Surface Web search not helpful, either.

Manjaro works better using VBoxSVGA too - but VirtualBox insist you use the VMSVGA driver for a Linux system and will complain it you don't.

Yes - you will get a message - for now - it is safe to ignore - and will improve your VM.
