Description Lubomir Kundrak 2007-12-13 07:45:51 EST
Description of problem:

When I try to boot ubuntu-7.10-desktop-i386.iso with KVM, I get an exception 6
before I am able to enter boot loader's menu. I suspect its graphics mode change
might be to blame.

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

kvm-53-1.fc9

Additional info:

$ qemu-kvm -boot d -cdrom ~/ubuntu/ubuntu-7.10-desktop-i386.iso 
Warning: No DNS servers found

I am putting Daniel into CC, as I first treid that with virt-manager, and was
unable to find out why wasn't I able to start the VM. virt-manager should report
such failure and possibly the kvm output in some way to the user and suggest
opening a bugzilla ticket.

This may be the same as bug 427858
Comment 2 petrosyan 2008-01-16 18:59:30 EST
*** Bug 427858 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
Comment 3 Josh Cogliati 2008-01-23 10:03:49 EST
As noted in bug 427858 this also occurs with openSUSE-10.3 LiveCD.
Comment 4 Lubomir Kundrak 2008-01-23 12:13:26 EST
As well as with alpha of openSUSE 11 after being installed.
Jeremy: Would it make sense if we reported it upstream?
Comment 5 Jeremy Katz 2008-01-28 22:35:48 EST
Already known upstream, but it's actually a bug in gfxboot, not kvm.  It's
trying to use code which cannot work under VT -- see

Comment 6 Josh Cogliati 2008-01-31 00:45:51 EST
I check and there are bugs filed in both Ubuntu and OpenSUSE.
