The Cloudera Quickstart VM version 5.4 is woefully out of date. When I did a yum upgrade it wanted to download 930 packages, totaling 2.8GB. Once I did this and reboot, the VM desktop no longer resizes properly when I resize the VirtualBox window. enter image description here What do I need to do to make resizing work again?


Apparently, it is necessary to re-install the VirtualBox Guest Additions. You do this by:

  1. Devices->Insert Guest Additions CD Image.
  2. sudo bash
  3. sh VBoxLinuxAdditions.run
  4. reboot
