Hi everyone.

I tried two solutions:

1) Compiling a new guest kernel. I got several errors during compilations with some kernel sources. I managed to compile successfully some sources, but the images didn't work at the end. Not even in a 32 bit system. I guess I did something horribly wrong xD.

2) Installing a 64 bit Ubuntu 8.10 with the latest version of the kernel. It uses a 2.6.27-7 kernel. It worked fine since the very beginning. I used exactly the same guest kernel image and filesystem, that is, I changed nothing but the host kernel. So, despite the guest kernel being a bit old it seems to work fine.

Thanks so much for your help. I hope this helps other people with the same problem.

Best regards.

Gerson.

That way you are sure it is not a kernel version think. 64 bit support
is much better as the guest kernels get newer.

Case 1) Host: 32 bits (2.6.24). Guest, UML Kernel: 32 bits.

Case 2) Host: 64 bits (2.6.24, 2.6.16). Guest: 32 bits. (the same

In both cases the host kernel is not too old (at least in the case of
