I would like to test Arch Linux in Virtualbox but it won't install. The window just closes at random position of the install. Sometimes it goes further sometimes it crashes earlier. Virtualbox's log says the following:

My Virtualbox is v3.0.4 but I have also tried the previous version. I'm running it under Ubuntu 9.04 with kernel 2.6.28-15.
EDIT: I have also tried with 3 different cd image files. All the images with PATA and IDE settings.

it is a well know bug in virtualbox that occurs on guests with 2.6.30 kernel. it is fixed in 3.0.6 which is not yet released.
Give what you have. To someone, it may be better than you dare to think.
Oh, thank you. Let's just wait then.
If you would like to find a solution until then, please message me in private, I've got a 3.0.5 pre-relase working version for linux/windows too.
"message you in private" ? o_O your pkgbuild is that confidential?

No, I won't send a PKGBUILD, I don't have it just a program without any automatization building system.
The 3.0.5 pre-release version isn't official, and the authors wouldn't like to release it, and asked me not to distribute it on forum/irc directly, that's the reason for it.
