As Freddie says I'm running the QEmu KVM software on Ubuntu x64.
DragonFly is running 32bit with 3.5Gb RAM and 4 CPUs (AMD-Phenom).
I can also trigger SMP DragonFly to lock up during a buildworld on
VMWare Server 1.0.5 (Dual Core, 2Gb RAM) and VirtualBox. I haven't tried
the bare metal but could do so if anyone thinks it would be useful. I'm
running HEAD as of yesterday but 1.12.2 also locks up.
The kernel is GENERIC with "options SMP" and "options APIC_IO" enabled
and no modifications to /etc/make.conf. I have also tried enabling
For debugging I copied the kernel and source to my Ubuntu home directory
kvm -smp 4 -m 3500 -hda "~/img/dfly.img" -net nic,model=e1000,vlan=1
-net user,vlan=1 -redir tcp:2201::22 -s
This is great info. One thing, what do you mean by 'KVM'? What
is DragonFly running under, exactly?
I think once I understand the environment I may be able to figure out
why the acquisition loop is blowing up.
