Public bug reported:

ok im using kvm, but thats a joke qemu has no binaries when it installs.

either I get a booting disc(even gfx boot) and I get to install
yosemite, or I get a black screen on mode switch(looks like graphic
misconfigure but its not), OR I cant load the cd to boot from and all
attempts to use it fail(triple fault and reboot cycle).

The media file (5gb) is fine. DL it twice.

glitch seems to fix once virtualbox has loaded a computer. That said:
vbox is stupidly slow with yosemite, even with the vbox patch installed. this isnt normal.

I can install snow on the same setup in minutes but yosemite wants to
take hours. crash on install finish as usual, and SOMEtimes I get a
workable working desktop on the next reboot..other times stall heaven. I
cant get to do anything with the result.

on snow im not sure if the iso was modified recently, some things are
off that should be working. both work amd so im not complaining yet. but
with snow I can get working given time, with yosemite, I cannot--thought
technically vbox supports it.

I thought making a new virtual drive solved the problem but that too is
no solution.

** Affects: qemu (Ubuntu)

** Package changed: systemd (Ubuntu) => qemu (Ubuntu)
