OEL Linux X11 resolution 1440X900

For a project I am running Oracle Enterprise Linux on my Macbook. The resolution of my MacBook Pro is 1440X900 so I also want this as the resolution of my Oracle Enterprise Linux installation within virtualbox. After installing the guest additions from virtualbox I had to addapt the content of the file /etc/X11/xorg.conf . There are a lot of guides online and hints online, some of them work some of them are not working. At least the below content was working for me an made Oracle enterprise Linux running with a 1440x900 resolution on my macbook pro.
