Description Miao ZhiCheng 2009-06-18 13:15:52 EDT
Description of problem:
I use the following command to boot a kernel image before:
qemu -hda disk.img -net nic,vlan=0,model=rtl8139 -net tap,vlan=0,ifname=tap-kerneldev -kernel /data/home/mzhicheng/Documents/prog/linux/rootfs/kerneldev/boot/vmlinuz-2.6.30kerneldev -append ip= root=/dev/nfs nfsroot=/data/home/mzhicheng/Documents/prog/linux/emacsprj/kerneldev/../../rootfs/kerneldev,udp,nolock ro

it worked before, disk.img is not a bootable disk image but with some partitions to test. After I upgrated to qemu-0.10.5-2.fc11.i586, it doesn't work any more and tell me "Booting from hard disk" and halt.

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

Thanks for the report, it is a silly regression introduced by the qemu-0.10.5-2.fc11 update

A fix is currently queued up, please test:
