This error message is misleading and should be fixed.
The driver vm-display-X11 is a dynamic library, which is shipped by
default with VM,
there is _no way_ how VM could not find it.
The problem is that this library depending on another libraries in
system which could be missing,
and because of that, when VM attempts to load it, OS reports an error,
and then VM says that its unable to find the driver,
while actually it is unable to load it.
