Description Andrew Bartlett 2007-09-06 20:58:21 EDT
Description of problem:
Starting the current installer under qemu (and qemu-kvm) panics (attempting to
kill init) during boot, unless -no-acpi is passed to qemu. 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Rawhide boot image as of 2007-09-07

How reproducible:
Every time

Steps to Reproduce:
1. sudo qemu-kvm -hda disk.img -cdrom boot.iso -kernel vmlinuz -initrd initrd.img 

Actual results:
Kernel panic in qemu console, starting at cpuidle_attach_driver

Expected results:
Installer to start, as it does if -no-acpi is added.

Additional info:
I have not yet tried this on real hardware.
Comment 1 Andrew Bartlett 2007-09-06 21:21:47 EDT
On further investigation, the version in the boot image was 2.6.23-0.161.rc5.fc8
and the kernel changelog for kernel 2.6.23-0.164.rc5.fc8.i686 has fixed this. 

This is fixed in the latest boot image (my mirror was stale).   Sorry for the noise.
