Description Lubomir Kundrak 2007-10-01 13:33:27 EDT
Description of problem:

When I want to network boot the KVM guest via PXE, qemu-kvm abort()s and leaves
a core dump.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

kvm-35-2.fc7
kernel-2.6.22.9-91.fc7
(I have "Intel(R) Core(TM)2 CPU" processor, so I use kvm_intel module)

Steps to Reproduce:
Any scenario that loads any of pxe* roms, say
$ qemu-kvm /dev/zero -boot n
or
$ qemu-kvm /dev/zero -option-rom /usr/share/kvm/pxe-ne2k_pci.bin 
or
$ qemu-kvm /dev/zero -option-rom /usr/share/kvm/pxe-lance.bin 
  
Actual results:

$ qemu-kvm /dev/zero -boot n
Could not configure '/dev/rtc' to have a 1024 Hz timer. This is not a fatal
error, but for better emulation accuracy either use a 2.6 host Linux kernel or
type 'echo 1024 > /proc/sys/dev/rtc/max-user-freq' as root.

Aborted (core dumped)
$ 

Expected results:

Network-boot the guest.

Additional info:

If the dump above is not enough to spot the problem (i.e. the guilty instruction
or whatever, I just don't understand this sort of things), I'd be glad to either
provide the core dump or try to suck some information from it.

Also, qemu (without KVM) works perfectly.

Shame on me, I didn't wait for the bugzilla query to finish, and after I filed
this I saw it found another bug on this.
