I have installed Kubunto 10.04 (Android project recommended development environment) on Virtualbox 4.1.16. I have installed the Virtualbox guest additions and have full-screen graphics on the guest. I am trying to work with OpenGL but I get the following messages (e.g. for glxinfo):

OpenGL Warning: Host doesn't accept our version 5.1. Make sure you have appropriate additions installed! OpenGL Warning: Failed to connect to host. Make sure 3D acceleration is enabled for this VM.

I have set the 3D acceleration support for the VM in the Virtualbox console.

Any ideas on how to get it to work?

I am talking about the Android source project ( I think it's possible to build it from either Linux of Mac OS X. Anyways, this is a more general question. – smichak Jun 26 '12 at 6:26
Your question better fits SuperUser. Voting to close as off-topic. – datenwolf Jun 26 '12 at 7:16

The answer is already in StackOverflow, here:

How do I run the Android Emulator after a Build?

Or, better, in the Android emulator site:

(I learnt it the hard way: I was trying to use a XP SP3 virtual machine for Android development)
