doesn't vbox have to be rebuilt everytime the kernel changes or
something? or the guest additions? or both?
btw, have you tried KVM + libvirt[virtmanager/<insert one of several
good webapps>]? there are a lot of great options out there now -- i
haven't had a single issue with my local KVM setup, and am in the
process of moving my companies infrastructure to it as well (+ some
LXC goodness) ... when i used vbox it was nice, but ... yeah :-)
... libvirt can handle vbox images in transition, too; just an idea,
it's been good to me.
