QEMU doesn't boot OpenSolaris
Last modified: 2013-01-09 06:39:55 EST
Description of problem:
QEMU is not able to boot a OpenSolaris LiveCD
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. wget http://www.genunix.org/distributions/indiana/osol-dev-134-x86.iso
2. qemu -cdrom osol-dev-134-x86.iso
I expected qemu to emulated hardware just fine so that OpenSolaris boots
Neither Schillix not other Solaris based CDs work with the same symptoms
OpenSolaris 2009-06 shows some dots before it returns to GRUB.
Thanks for the bug report. There appears to be issue with the opensolaris partitions being seen. There was a patch floating around, I will do some testing and see if that fixes things.
Solaris 11 and OpenIndiana oi_151a both work here in Fedora 16. I think this old bug can be closed.
Although timekeeping is buggered: https://www.illumos.org/issues/1871 and
