Virtual Box Broken 
For everyone who follows this blog (you both know who your are =-P) we just discovered that Oracle's Virtual Box (was 4.1.10 this morning - is now 4.1.12 as I write this - we can all surely relate to that type of effort!) is broken. It seems that the shipping version is no longer able to import a virtual appliance.

I noticed the problem today under Ubuntu 64 - 10.04 LTS. Have not tried elsewhere yet.

For those who share the woe, just:

sudo apt-get remove virtualbox*

-Then reinstall your last working version. (For me, that version was 4.1.8 r75467, aka "virtualbox-4.1_4.1.8-75467~Ubuntu~lucid_amd64.deb".)

---Sharing is caring,


(p.s. From what I can tell, there is a problem in the decompression, as well as the CRC settling, library routines. Upon terse review, it looks like the OVA importation installation seems to hiccup when switching between artifact types. (Check those deltas - we probably just need to 'memset something back to zero, guys?))

.02 ends
