do you guys have any experience using HURD on VirtualBox? It is my last resort currently to test a bit of hurd 1. original workstation which run HURD for 6 years: incapable of reinstall: low memory and somehow incompatible with current GRUB (wrote to GRUB ML, got no answer) 2. spare laptop: installs, but PCMCIA network card not recognize, could try WiFi but don't know which/what tools to install to test

thus... 3. VirtualBox

Install went fine, system boots, network works. After a bit it stops working reliable, I wanted to investigate more, but now the machine stops booting. It did previously boot couple of times

I can boot in "recovery mode" with success, but if I reboot, I get as far as the attached screenshot.

start ext2fs: Hurd server bootstrap: exec startup proc auth

I have seen this on my "old" box too, before I reinstalled it and got it no longer working.
The CPU of the host goes up high, so it is stuck in some sort of loop.
