Xorg error log

Description of problem:
When attempting to startx on F13 within a VirtualBox guest X is unable to start as it can't find the vboxvideo driver. Creating an xorg.conf setting the device to use vesa allows X to start. Either provide the module or allow X to fall back to vesa for this virtual hardware I guess?
