Hello community,

When installing Gentoo Linux as a guest operating system in VirtualBox, what's the difference between:
- virtualbox kernel modules from the kernel itself (CONFIG_VBOXGUEST and CONFIG_DRM_VBOXVIDEO)
- Xorg drivers x11-drivers/xf86-video-vboxvideo
- app-emulation/virtualbox-guest-additions

Thanks,

Should be the same of app-emulation/virtualbox-guest-additions but added in mainline kernel from 4.16 (I never tried these)

The driver needed by xorg
