Non OSE Virtualbox strange behaviour

http://forums.opensuse.org – I installed Virtualbox 3.1.0 (non OSE as I required the USB support) on my 11.2 box. I got the 11.2 rpm download from the virtualbox.org site and installed it through yast. I've had a terrible time trying to install oS11.2 into a VM. I set up a VM and then tried installing oS11.2. The install hung twice, then when it completed a reboot gave all sorts of errors and none of default repos were installed. Now every time I reboot the installation screen comes up saying that the install did not complete, would I like to complete it. I choose yes and then it goes straight to the login screen. I tried loading the 4 main repos in YAST and doing a full unconditional update but that hasn't cured the "incompleted install screen" coming up at every reboot. Also, reboots keep giving errors about apparmour and the ifup being killed; and 2 out of 3 hung at the desktop once logging in. I can't even get to the logs. The install medium is the same as I used for installing 11.2 on the host so it should be fine. Is there an issue with non OSE Virtualbox and 11.2? My host is an AMD 64 x2 5200+ processor with 2GB ram. (Distributions)
