Description Thornton Prime 2002-06-15 18:09:05 EDT
Please include UML. http://user-mode-linux.sourceforge.net

I see that the Kernel SPEC file includes support for compiling a UML binary,
though it is still incomplete, and we lack the distribution of the UML-utilities.
Comment 1 Arjan van de Ven 2002-06-16 05:21:50 EDT


is there already....the tools not yet indeed, though
Comment 2 Thornton Prime 2002-07-01 12:07:18 EDT
I haven't been able to get the UML build to work at all. It appears to boot up
fine, but never enters init. No error. It just hangs.
Comment 3 Pete Zaitcev 2002-08-12 19:27:49 EDT
The -31 version which went with Limbo would hang until
you hit a key in the console. I talked to Jeff and he
said it looks like a typical symptom of UML conflicting with O(1),
and pointed me to the forward_sigio() in 2.5. However,
when I updated our to tree to -48, I could not reproduce
the hang anymore, so I left it stock. If it keeps showing up,
we may try that fix.
Comment 4 Thornton Prime 2003-06-27 19:36:06 EDT
I know UML was in 8, pulled from 9 and doesn't look like it will make it into
Cambridge, but I'd like  to leave it open as a RFE ...

UML is fairly important to those of us in the hosting world.

Thanks for the bug report. However, Red Hat no longer maintains this version of
the product. Please upgrade to the latest version and open a new bug if the problem

The Fedora Legacy project (http://fedoralegacy.org/) maintains some older releases, 
and if you believe this bug is interesting to them, please report the problem in
the bug tracker at: http://bugzilla.fedora.us/
