VirtualBox on Mac: Part II

...continued from previous post

6. Downloaded the Gentoo image.
7. Selected install from an image in VirtualBox.
8. Click continue. Darn that "App quit unexpectedly" dialog again.
9. Click reload. Again the same error.

I had to learn it the hard way. VirtualBox beta release for mac has some known issues with Leopard. I install Leopard over Tiger just a month ago. I did not know I would regret so much. Oh well, I guess I will have to wait until the next release of VirtualBox. I wanted to build VirtualBox from svn, but before I compiled it, I searched on the net to see other's experiences and they were not very positive. I decided to go with other virtual environments until VirtualBox is fixed. Here is a link explaining the problems with Leopard and compiling from svn http://www.macwindows.com/virtualboxbeta.html.
