    Hi, coLinux cannot support 64 bit Windows, so I have Windows 7 32bit installed.  To support large RAM (>= 4GB), I managed to enable the Windows 7 to use all the available RAM, see picture below:
    !(http://pic1.kaixin001.com/pic/app/66/90/2_57669047_diary.png)

    However, in this configuration the coLinux VM can't start.  Does coLinux VM fully support PAE?

    CoLinux should run on all 32 bit machines up to 4MB RAM (not more). PAE is supported.
    Please run:

        colinux-debug-daemon.exe -d -p -s prints=31,misc=31 -f debug.xml

    before you starts colinux. This should give you more details about the problem.

    If that not helps, then set this registry key:

       
        "Debug"=dword:0000001f

    Than run DebugView from (http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/bb896647.aspx), enable the menu check box "Capture Kernel". Than install the driver with

        colinux-daemon -install-driver

    At startup driver we have some system checks for big memory. The outputs about memory would be interesting here.

    This is the problem:

        colinux: BUG at stable-gcc412.svn/linux-2.6.22.18-source/kernel/cooperative.c:204

    This is the source of line 204 (http://colinux.svn.sourceforge.net/viewvc/colinux/branches/stable/patch/base-2.6.22.diff?revision=1289&view=markup#l_2421):

        BUG_ON((unsigned long)linux_message->device >= (unsigned long)CO_DEVICES_TOTAL);
    Any device is out of range? Mysterious.

    Please run a ramdisk with minimal parameters:

        colinux-daemon kernel=vmlinux initrd=initrd.gz root=/dev/ram0

    Verify the top kernel message line, that views the build time of kernel. Or run "uname -a" or "dmesg | head". The build time should be the same as the daemons and nt-driver, check this with "colinux-daemon -status-driver".

    If initrd runs, then please add some of your parameters successive. Start with "mem=960" (not more please). Next try with mem=1000. Be carefully! I'm afraid, this would crash. - Or set "mem=960" in your current installation. This should also run (but memory areas are not not safe.)

    I'm afraid, this is a Bug (http://sourceforge.net/tracker/?func=detail&aid=2893343&group_id=98788&atid=622063) where we have not separated the vmalloc from colinux passage memory. This can overlapping memory, if you use maximal memory for coLinux. The fix was added some days after the 0.7.5 was released. Please run 0.7.6-rc1from (http://www.colinux.org/snapshots/)

    For the CR4: This is ok. This are defaults, before Linux kernel runs the first time, and coLinux kernel (guest) does not support PAE, that's why we only have 1MB in the Linux guest.

     
  • Henry N.

    Henry N. - 2009-11-24

    typofix: Max. 1GB (exactly 984 MB) we can use for Linux guest.

    Hi Henryn,

    I update to 0.7.6-rc, tried:

        colinux-daemon kernel=vmlinux initrd=initrd.gz root=/dev/ram0 mem=128

    This time it shows BUG at cooperative.c:202

    I'm afraid I can not use coLinux with Windows 7 32 bit with PAE forced(RAM >= 4GB)

    The fltk shows nothing when the colinux waiting at "booting".  After I press any key in the fltk window, the colinux shows "Linux VM terminated" then quits.

    cooperative.c:202:

        BUG_ON((unsigned long)message->from >= (unsigned long)CO_MODULES_MAX);

    This is near the same of the other bug.

    4GB is the limit for every 32 bit systems, because 2^32 bytes are 4 Gbytes. With more memory the address counter would overflow (or wrapped around) and can get bad data. (http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa366778%28VS.85%29.aspx#physical_memory_limits_windows_7). To access the memory every OS needs some kbytes for page tables and hardware like video card, and they must also be inside the 4GB. So, a 32 bit OS can never real use 4GB total. - Not without special tricks. (http://www.codinghorror.com/blog/archives/000811.html)

    Under XP it was so, that you never have been see 4GB.

    How Windows 7 handle this now? Are some pages mapped in a special handling? Has one virtual more as one physical memory now???

    Please give us the output from "colinux-daemon -install-driver" (see top, post 2). It would be nice to see, what Windows give us for the value "Memory installed in your machine". We have PAE supported up to 4GB. I can test it only up to 2GB, with PAE forced in boot.ini of Windows XP.

    Henry N. - 2009-11-24

    coLinux can support PAE.

    To use more as 3.5GB physically memory, Windows uses (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Address_Windowing_Extensions). That type of addressing does not work for coLinux. Pages for coLinux must be fix, not swapped out and not "hidden" behind the AWE.

    I think I shall say Goodbye to coLinux now, although I've used coLinux for more than one years.

    Today I installed VirtualBox on my 4GB enabled Windows 7 system.  It runs wonderfully, and it even supports 4 CPU cores based on my Q6600 CPU.  The performance is much better than coLinux.  And its seamless mode is similar to the Windows 7 XP mode.  All I need is there.   It also supports USB redirection and Windows 7 64-bit.   So for my future new i7 laptop w/Windows 7 64-bit I think the VirtualBox is the only choice.
