I'm trying to run ArchLinux in a VirtualBox VM but each time I start the VM it seems to crash. I see Arch booting up to this line:

::Loading udev...

It pauses there for say 30 seconds, then I briefly see next line but before I can read what is says the VM crashes. I've tried different settings in VirtualBox like enabling the PAE/NX which e.g. is necessary to run Ubuntu server, but nothing seems to work so far.

These are the specs:

  • Ubuntu 9.04 Desktop (host)
  • VirtualBox 2.2.4 r47978
  • ArchLinux 2009.08-core

Crash log:
