Re: Booting issue

:? Well I really can't see what the problem might be here. I guess I need to install a Ubuntu VM and give it a try. If you didn't already mention it upthread, can you say which version of Ubuntu you're using?

Re: Booting issue

Looks normal. I just had a small hunch... you didn't by any chance use a Windows program like WinZip to unzip the Visopsys source file, did you? I'm wondering if there are DOS/Windows linefeed characters added to the script. If you load it up in a program like emacs, you'd see stuff like ^m (I think...

Re: Booting issue

Thanks for helping me sort this out.

OK, I'm a little bit stumped. Can you post your image-cd.sh script? I know what the released one looks like, but I just want to make sure I'm looking at the same script as you've got there...

Re: Booting issue

That is bizarre. It almost looks like the 'date' command isn't working the way the script expects. Can you try running with the -r option? Like: ./image-cd.sh -r Also, could you try adding 'set -x' to the beginning of both scripts, and posting the output? That should show us exactly what's happening.

Re: Booting issue

Could you possibly insert the following line before line 46 in image-cd.sh?: echo $RELFLAG $ISOBOOT $IMAGEFLOPPYLOG and could you insert the following line before line 30 in image-floppy.sh?: echo $1 and run image-cd.sh again? When running from the CD, the filesystem is ISO, or UDF if it's a DVD. On...

Re: Booting issue

Hi osmiumusa What version of the Visopsys source are you using there? I'm curious about what's going on with the image-cd.sh and image-floppy.sh scripts (I'm not familiar with MagicISO or how it does things, but it sounds like it might be screwing up the filesystem organization a little bit). I'm as...

Re: Visopsys Build Help

Hi sundhar,

Those lines don't really indicate the actual error; are there any messages that come slightly before that?

Re: Visopsys discussion forum

Hi Raimundo, There does seem to be a problem/bug with VPC and the way it implements task switching, and so far I haven't been able to come up with a workaround. I've discussed it with an engineer at Microsoft but we didn't come up with a solution. Visopsys uses the built-in mechanisms of the x86 chi...

Re: Visopsys discussion forum

Hey RhapsodyGuru, thanks for the post.

I've just got a couple of little bugs that I want to fix before the release, so it really should just be another few days. Couple of weeks, tops. I hope!
