Re: /boot causes triple fault in vmware


I just built a NetBSD/amd64 release ISO image from recent sources and
was going to install it in a VMware Fusion virtual machine, but as
soon as /boot is started (after the VESA-related text message
appears), the virtual machine crashes.  I found this in the logs:

Mar 04 13:37:23.536: vcpu-0| Triple fault.
Mar 04 13:37:23.536: vcpu-0| Msg_Hint: msg.monitorEvent.cpl0SS (sent)
Mar 04 13:37:23.536: vcpu-0| *** Virtual machine kernel stack fault
(hardware reset) ***
Mar 04 13:37:23.536: vcpu-0| The virtual machine just suffered a stack
fault in kernel mode. On a real computer, this would amount to a reset
of the processor. It can be caused by an incorrect configurati
on of the virtual machine, a bug in the operating system, or a problem
in the VMware Fusion software. Press OK to reboot virtual machine or
Cancel to shut it down.
Mar 04 13:37:23.536: vcpu-0| ---------------------------------------
Mar 04 13:37:25.083: vcpu-0| CPU reset: hard

Any ideas?

Hi Julio,

I haven't had any problems myself with NetBSD/amd64 in VMWare Fusion.
I've booted ISOs with 4.99.67 and 5.0_BETA without issue, and I'm
running a 5.99.7 GENERIC kernel right now.

I tried to duplicate your problem by booting the latest ISO installers
I could find on the NetBSD FTP site (5.0_RC2, and HEAD/200903040000Z),
and I didn't run into this problem.

I'm using VMWare Fusion 2.0.2, and I'm selecting "Other 64-bit OS".
It's running under Tiger 10.4.11.  Let me know if there are any other
details that could help you differentiate.  Could it be your installer
that's the problem?
