  1. Bug#470601: Debian Lenny-pre-RC1 on Virtual PC 2007 / unrecoverable processor error

    Hello,

    Here's an update for my previous report.

    Newer kernel (maybe 2.6.24, and 2.6.26) reveals a bug in VirtualPC,
    where it fails to boot with the error message "An unrecoverable
    processor error has been encountered. The virtual machine will reset
    now."

    This bug only occurs on the installed system (i.e not when booting
    debian-installer). An easy work-around is to add "noreplace-paravirt" to
    the boot command line.
    A patch was applied upstream (for 2.6.27) to solve this problem. see

    http://git.kernel.org/?p=linux/kerne...1b91fb3ca3f321


    Some other bugs exists, but they have been reported to DD maintainer or
    upstream, then documented on the wiki page:

    I'm reassigning the bug to the kernel team since it cannot be dealt by
    us.

    Could this be backported? This is a very simple fix and I believe it
    is worth a backport. Kernel Team?
