Description Dan Mastrian 2004-05-03 11:09:52 EDT
Description of problem:
After successfully installing FC2 test3 on Virtual PC 2004, I 
rebooted.  Immediately after init started, I was dumped to the text-
mode login (though the system should be trying to reach runlevel 5).  
Console output is included below.

Changing inittab to boot to runlevel 3 gets rid of the X error 
messages, but still nothing from rc.sysinit seems to run.

I've installed twice, with the exact same results both times.

The only processes running are:

[root@(none) root]# ps -A          
  PID TTY          TIME CMD        
    1 ?        00:00:08 init

  134 tty1     00:00:00 ps    

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


How reproducible:
2 of 2 times

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install FC2 test3 on Virtual PC 2004
2. Reboot machine
3. Notice init begin to start, then dump you to text-mode login
  
Actual results:
1. init doesn't appear to run anything in rc.sysinit
2. Dumped to text-mode login prompt
3. Most commands segfault intermittently

Expected results:
1. init should start something :)
2. firstboot should run
3. Graphical startup

This looks like a virtual pc bug in how it emulates the CPU.
