Over the past 18-24 months, every milestone releasee (and a few final releases) of openSUSE has the same major problem with either the latest (release) versions of VirtualBox or VMware Player.
- You can't run the installer from a LiveCD without booting to the Live
CD desktop first.
2).After installing from the Live CD and booting into the into the Installed OS the spash screen apperars (I'll Esc to see what's going on under the hood) and the boot process appears nromal untill the point where one would be looking at A) KDM or B) GDM or c) a KDE/GNOME desktop.
Instead of getting A-C you get a blank, black screen.
Is this a (maddeningly old) bug or a feature?
Yes, I agree that we seem to have a lot of issues with VirtualBox. I'm wondering if it's due to the fact that we install the guest additions that might (or might not) be older/newer than the VirtualBox host version.
Perhaps it's worth investigating at least.
