Default Nvidia Virtual Support

I am currently running a MacPro with a Nvidia FX4000 graphics card. I am also running CentOS 4.7 on VirtualBox which is a Virtual Machine emulator. As VirtualBox is effectively a Type 2 Hypervisor and essentially virtualizes everything including the graphics card, is there a way to emulate the support for the Nvidia card as I have a Linux application which requires the presence of the card.

Default Re: Nvidia Virtual Support

It is not possible. VirtualBox only supports it's own "GPU" on the guest. It does support 3D acceleration, but can not emulate a non-virtualbox GPU.
