#42 CoLinux does not start, but forces reboot of win2003server


Hi Folks,

I tried to install CoLinux with a debian-image on my
Windows 2003 Server Enterprise Edition, but it does not
work. Whenever I start colinux-daemon -c configfile.xml,
it forces a reboot (no bluescreen or s.th., only a restart)
of the whole system w/o any hint, why it does not work.

I tried the the Asterisk-"ready-to-run"-image (astwind.
exe) I found at www.asterisk.org, because I wanted to
use asterisk with windows; but I also tried the
debian-with-ext3-image I found here; the same problem.

Below you can find my xml-file (I replaced the
greater-then- and lower-then-chars with ( and ) to
prevent trouble with the HTML-output of this bugtracker)
. When I modify the memory size to e.g. 4 MB or when I
enter e.g. "LAN-Verbindung 3" into the network-field,
CoLinux does stop much earlier with an error and the PC
does not reboot.

And below you can find the output CoLinux gives. (There
is one more line I could not read any more, as it is to late
to press Pause like I did to log the rest)

Does anybody know the problem and give me a tipp?

Kind regards

    ... I tried the current (20041015) snapshot and the problem
    seems to be fixed.
