Hi Mark,

Today I installed VirtualBox-OSE 4.3.26 and attempted to boot the LiveCD.
All went fine: mouse works and Enlightenment is loaded as expected.

My VM settings are set as:

  Operating system: other Linux (32-bit)
  Acceleration: VT-x/AMD-V, Nested Paging, PAE/NX

  Video memory: 32MB
  Remote desktop server: Disabled
  Video capture: disabled

  IDE primary master: [CD/DVD] GoboLinux-015-i686.iso
  IDE secondary master: empty

Other than that, I've enabled the Serial port and the USB controller. USB
2.0 (EHCI) is disabled. The kernel modules have also been loaded by calling
'/etc/init.d/vboxdrv start' on the host.

Hope this helps somehow.
