I tried installing opensuse 11 A3 on virtual box and it is still
sitting at the "probe hard disk controllers" set for several hours
now, I'll probably kill it before the end of the day...

Anyone else see this problem?


I had the same problem, I even tried using the
hwprobe=-parallel,-misc.par workaround suggested in the announcement
for openSUSE 11 A3, still no go... didn't know if I bugreport for it
was needed... I kind of gave up on it after a couple of hours fighting
a losing battle.

That workaround worked OK here. Funny things computers [including virtual
boxen ;)]
