I tried the latest release today. Couldn't get it to run at all in VirtualBox, the kernel fails right after the boot menu.


Are you using VirtualBox 3.2 or newer? The release notes specifically mention this issue and it's a bug with VirtualBox (what a surprise).

I'm using VirtualBox 4.1.
As I mentioned in the above post I also tried qemu and, while MINIX sort of works there, I can't get a network connection with it. It struck me as odd since I was able to get a previous version (I think 3.1.x) working without any trouble.
