Thumbs up How to run qemu Linux virtual machines properly on android tabs.


My tab specification's are 1.2 GHz quad core processor and 1 GB ram, 16 GB internal ROM.

I want to run RHEL 5.0 X86 CLI I mean without any gui on my tab and so I followed the steps below

At first on windows I have installed qemu manager and after that I have created a virtual machine RHEL with processor option as Pentium 3 and ram option with 256 MB. The installation was successful and I am able to boot properly into it.

After that I have transferred the installation image to my tab. In order to run the virtual machine I have installed limbo qemu manager. I have selected the transferred image and specified the same options as above.

When I run the above virtual machine I am unable to boot into my system properly and I getting the following errors

kernel panic not syncing: kernel compiled for Pentium+ requires TSC feature.
general protection fault : fffa [#1]

Kindly suggest how to rectify the above and successfully run the above virtual machine on my tab.

Regards,
Rupesh.

First, RHEL 5.0 is ANCIENT, unsupported, and insecure. Also, RHEL is a commercial, PAY FOR product. The last version of RHEL that IS supported is 5.10, and that will be out of support very soon. So you need to UPDATE the version of RHEL you're using, and PAY FOR IT. If you're not going to pay for it, stop where you are and get the latest version of CentOS instead.

Did you try to look up that error message? Again, showing some effort of your own would be nice.

That error is probably due to the VERY OLD version of RHEL you're trying to run; again, pay for and get the latest version, or use CentOS. Second, you can compile the kernel to accommodate that feature, and the message will disappear too. Try either one.

OK please forgive me for using pirated software's I am doing so because there is no other option for me to learn Linux because as I have installed authorised Linux distro on my PC and due to frequent power failures I have decided to use qemu Linux image on my tab still I have encountered a lot of failures while implementing new distros I mean my tab is frequently gets struck when I use new distros and so I have selected RHEL5 X86.

If you have any qemu image which is capable to work on android tab please provide the link.

I believe that you know how to solve the above issue so please suggest the solution.

No, either you need to PAY or you need to not use it, period. And your argument is, frankly, stupid...there are MANY distros of Linux that are absolutely free...you could use ANY of them, and be 'authorized'. Mandriva, Ubuntu, Mint, openSUSE, Fedora, Debian, etc....ALL are totally free. So is CentOS, as you've been told before. Pick one.

No, you can look up your own links, thanks.

And again, as you've been told before in your other threads (under BOTH your account names), you need to show effort of your own. You were given the solution VERY CLEARLY in the first reply; which part didn't you understand? Again:
  • Get the latest version of RHEL if you're going to PAY, or CentOS if you're not
  • Compile the kernel with the correct options in it.
AGAIN, a brief Google search for the error brings up MANY documents that tell you how to compile the kernel for that option...some effort on your part will let you use the pirated RHEL that you have.
