Ticket #7574 (closed defect: worksforme)
Ubuntu 10.10 guest crashes on 3.2.10

I just downloaded the new virtual box release and the new ubuntu 10.10 release. I created a virtual machine for the new ubuntu release and attempted to run it however the machine unexpectedly aborts (when selecting the option to either try or install ubuntu). No log file is generated for this.
I had a similar problem in the previous version of virtual box. If I am running Snow Leopard with the 64bit kernel extensions enabled, the machine crashes and when I run snow leopard without the 64bit kernel extensions, everything works fine.
NOTE: if you would like to try this make sure that 64bit kernel extensions are enabled. I'm not sure about the new line of mac books with the new intel i5/i7 cores but by default the older macs boot without these extensions. To boot with these extensions, restart your computer and hold down '6' and '4' until the login screen.
