Run VirtualBox on Snow Leopard set to 64-bit?

Run VirtualBox on Snow Leopard set to 64-bit?

I know there are problems running VMWare Fusion when Snow Leopard has been set to boot as 64-bit. It will only run on 32-bit for now (default for desktop/laptop Macs).

"VirtualBox 3.04 will run on SL64 - it has 64-bit kexts installed by default.

It's not without bugs though - the most severe I have faced is the occasional crash while accessing the Settings panel for a VM. Not exactly a big issue, just try to avoid touching the Settings panel while the VM is running. Other than that, I'm quite happy with its performance and functionality.

VMWare Fusion and Parallels as of now does not work with SL64."

"from build 3846 it should work with parallels 4.0

It seems only VirtualBox 3.0.6 Beta has SL64 support see

Vmware is late at the SL64 party :-("
