"xrandr -s NNNNxNNN" works at my end as long as you pick one of the available resolutions (typing only "xrandr" will give you a list of them).

If is not working see what /var/log/Xorg.0.log reports and the driver is using.
Code:
cat /var/log/Xorg.0.log | grep EE # will show you the errors
cat /var/log/Xorg.0.log | grep Loading | grep drivers # will tell the video driver


You may also try to force your resolution by adding in /etc/X11/xorg.cong something like
Code:
Section "Screen"
   Identifier "Screen0"
   Device     "Card0"
   Monitor    "Monitor0"
   DefaultDepth 24
   Subsection "Display"
      Depth       24
      Modes       "1366x768"
   EndSubsection
EndSection

is the kernel source available? if not that's a huge issue. u can't install virtualbox without it.

if the kernel source isn't available, i'm thinking we should remaster the main.sfs with a different kernel, that has the source available. retroprecise's non-pae kernel 3.2.32 has been working just fine for me......

Are you sure about that? I do not use VB but unless you need to compile an in-tree module you do not need the source.
Usually you need the headers to compile and these are available in devx.
Anyway, from what I can see the source is vanilla 3.4.28 patched with aufs but I do think simargl should provide it.
I'll ask and we'll see.

i may be wrong. i thought the kernel src was needed though to compile vboxdrv.ko vboxnetadp.ko vboxnetflt.ko and vboxpci.ko

Sub_title: not updating
 

I am just asking with academic interest. Why this warning or problem while updating with pacman?

[root@archpup ~]# pacman -Syu
:: Synchronizing package databases...
core is up to date
extra is up to date
community is up to date
:: Starting full system upgrade...
warning: linux: ignoring package upgrade (3.4.28-1 => 3.7.5-1)
warning: linux-api-headers: ignoring package upgrade (3.4.28-1 => 3.7.4-1)
warning: pango: ignoring package upgrade (1.30.1-1 => 1.32.5-1)
warning: ignoring package replacement (udev-175-1 => systemd-197-4)
there is nothing to do

That's because I recompiled those packages with various reasons using older versions than
in original Arch. To prevent pacman overwriting them, they are in IgnorePkg list in /etc/pacman.conf.
