VirtualBox 2.0.0 and Intrepid 2.6.27-3 kernel

Earlier I had mentioned my issues running Intrepid on VirtualBox. After doing some reading, I decided to upgrade from the “latest stable” VirtualBox 1.6.6 to the 2.0.0 version. This seems to have solved all of the issues I was having with failure to boot.

Vbox 2.0 installed Intrepid and ran the .26 kernel ok and upgrading to .27-3 didn’t break it. Thats a good start! Sure, running an Apha OS on a RC VM may not be the optimal solution, but it is working here. My initial feeling is that its looking good, but I’ll keep you updated as more runtime use either validates or invalidates my initial experiences.

    What are you using for the host o/s? If its ubuntu, can you reference any repositories to use for other than stock virtualbox (1.5.x)?
