This issue is a plague...
I'm attempting to install Slackware 12.1 on VMWare Server (1.0.5) and I have tried on Virtual PC 2007 with the same results...
Huge.s and hugesmp.s both do the same...
It dies right after:
xor: automatically using best checksumming function: pIII_sse
invalid opcode: 0000 [#1]
Modules linked in:
Pid: 1, comm: swapper Not tainted (126.96.36.199 #2)
EIP: blah blah
Kernel panic - not syncing: Attempted to kill init!
(this is pretty much after the processor checks)
The processer of the host pc is an AMD XP 1700+.
I don't know how to diagnos this so any help would be awesome!
Tried acpi=off and apci=off -- didn't help
(maybe a timer problem?)
Virtual Box does the same thing =/
Slackware 12.0 gets past TCP setup and then after Serial: 8250/16550 driver is installed it does the same kernel panic
