Hmm. I'm using the -bin, just upgraded that thing and installed the new addons into an old image - and the tickbox was tickable just as it should.

Just tried virtualbox-bin, same thing, grayed box, then I changed in .VirtualBox/Machines/xp/xp.xml line
<Display VRAMSize="128" monitorCount="1" accelerate3D="false"/>
to true, now direct3d is working, option is now checked but still grayed, never mind that, screensavers worked, dxdiag tests for directx 8 and 9 works (and fast too) but version 7 doesn't work, and I wanted to play Typing of the dead game which use directx 7... bad luck, now I have to find something else to try but don't have nothing right now.

It works with 3.0.0. I also had no problems with 3D acceleration in 3.0.0_beta2 for 64 bit guests. My single 32 bit guest did not enable for some reason. After installing jokey's ebuilds for 3.0.0 I had 3D acceleration in 32 bit clients.
