Description Tomas Hoger 2008-02-19 06:27:16 EST
Description of problem:
qemu-kvm crashes when trying to boot RHEL2.1 (i386) on x86_64 host (i386 host
was not tested).

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
kvm-36-7.fc8 x86_64
kernel-2.6.23.15-137.fc8

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install RHEL2.1 into kvm virtual machine.  Install works fine.
2. Reboot to freshly installed system.  qemu-kvm will crash shortly after
   kernel starts.  qemu-kvm just generates 'Bus Error' message on its output.
3. Boot from install CD to rescue mode works fine too.
  
Additional info:
kvm-60-1 from rawhide built on F8 seems to work fine.

Please consider updating kvm in F8.

kvm-60 is actually built to go out with the 2.6.24 kernel update for Fedora 8
and should be available in -updates-testing now/soon
Comment 2 Tomas Hoger 2008-02-19 13:32:13 EST
Thanks!  Sounds great.  Why wasn't that build in Koji when I checked yesterday
and had to do my own build? ;)
Comment 3 Tomas Hoger 2008-04-08 06:11:44 EDT
kvm-60-3.fc8 currently in F8 boots RHEL2.1 fine.  Feel free to close this bug
unless you want to use it to track this also for F7.

Thanks!
