Running 3.9 current, with a build from August 13, I can't get Enlightenment to progress beyond the splash screen with the color changing row of cubes. After some time of waiting, the VM simply stops responding entirely and requires a hard reset. The host OS is OS X 10.8, virtualized by VIrtualbox 4.3.14. If you would like specific information occurring at the time of launch, let me know how to retrieve it and I'll post it here.

Indeed, i've not found the issue, but i've a workaround. It looks like disabeling the splash screen works.
You can start enlightenment, switch back to a tty, and

pkill enlighenment_in

You'll get access to enlightenment itself. Then in the menu, go to settings -> all -> look -> startup, and uncheck the "show splash screen on login"

I tried e17 on my laptop for a few minutes, it works fine besides this issue.
