How To Fix Vagrant Up Hanging
Following along the Deploying Rails book, I stumbled immediately when
vagrant up hung showing;

even though the server in fact had booted ok.
I found a solution in the mailing list from a Stefano Pallica:

:::ruby config.vm.boot_mode = :gui
Login to the server when booted.
Edit /etc/rc.local and add the following before
:::bash /etc/init.d/networking restart
Worked for me.
