I think when Virtual Box Additions are installed, it makes changes to the xorg.conf file that enables window mode, full screen mode and seamless mode. But the file becomes incompatible with system-config-display.
When I ran "system-config-display --reconfig", it created a new xorg.conf file which prevents seamless mode from working. Also the maximum resolution I can set is 1024x768 (even in full screen mode) although my LDC panel supports upto 1440x900.
I installed VBox additions again and it restored the xorg.conf file. All three display modes work correctly now. I can set upto 1024x768 in window mode and 1440x900 in full screen mode. Seamless mode also works correctly. Also system-config-display is working now.
Maybe manually editing the xorg.conf file would make both system-config-display and seamless mode happy. I lack the expertise for that though.
Thanks for your help.
PS: This is first time I am trying Fedora 10 as a guest, I find the seamless mode pretty cool.
