    Can't install Xubuntu 13.04 in VirtualBox?

    I've tried downloading both the 32bit and 64bit daily build and for whatever reason the installer doesn't seem to be working. I get up to entering my user info then all I get is the carousel but nothing else. It never asks for what type of install I want, i.e. entire disk etc.

    I don't know if it's a VirtualBox problem or a 13.04 image problem. I see there was a post about the installer problem elsewhere.

    any thoughts?

I'm puzzled why they would release an .iso image no one can install.

    is it with Oracle or ubuntu virtualbox version ?

    note that ubuntu version is outdated and cant play with 3.7 kernel, but the Oracle one have no problem with it.

    well, it's the Oracle version, 4.2.4 running on an OSX 10.8.2 host and it seems others are having an issue with the installer even on metal.

    I'm not sure what logs I would be looking at. As I mentioned others are having the same problem even installing it directly to hardware according to this thread... http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2081344
