Virtualbox: Compositing does not work, compiz crashes

So, here's my problem:

After installing a fresh Arch Linux, the first thing I did was install Xorg and Virtualbox guest modules. After doing all that, and running Xfce, it worked just fine... except there was no compositing.
When I installed Compiz and tried to run it, it just crashed, closing every program and just leaving me with the wallpaper, forcing me to killall X

Is there a way to fix this? I don't have a xorg.conf file in /etc/X11, and xorg :0 -configure gives me the error "No output drivers"

Is this an actual install or VirtualBox install?

Also have you tried using Xfce's builtin compositing?

sq10,

You have now bumped this thread twice.  Our Policy addresses this.  Please read it.

These forums are very active.  If no one jumps in with help or, at least, a suggestion, it should be a clear indication you have not done a good job of forming a question.  Rather than empty bumps, which will likely just yield the same mil results, give us more information. Tell us what you have read. Tell us what you have learned in your own self study of the problem.

Thanks.
