Description Brian Harvey 2005-02-05 03:22:20 UTC
Description of problem:

I had previously installed FC1 under Virtual PC (ver. 6.1) on my
Macintosh.  I tried to upgrade to FC3.  The installation process
ran without trouble (albeit slowly, under emulation), but the
installed kernel won't boot.  It gets through GRUB okay, and gets
up to printing "Uncompressing Linux... Okay, booting the kernel."
Then Virtual PC pops up a box saying "An unrecoverable processor
error has been encountered." with a restart button that reboots the
simulated PC.  I can run "linux rescue" off the install CD, and it
can mount my (simulated) disk, and the kernel's there.  I don't
know what else to try.  I know this isn't very helpful because I
don't even have a PC at which it crashed.

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

How reproducible:

I've only tried it once -- it takes days to install everything!
(I asked to install all packages, back when I installed FC1.  The
upgrade didn't ask me what to install, but also seems to have
installed everything.)

Steps to Reproduce:
Actual results:

Simulated PC crashes.

Expected results:

Kernel runs!

I'm not sure whether any of this will be helpful; I couldn't find anything
helpful in it, but I'm hoping you might.

Long story short, you need to somehow install the latest FC update
kernel or the i586 version with does not have 4G/4G memory split.

(You can do that from rescue mode.)
