  • Anonymous - 2011-07-12

    hello, every one ! when i run colinux on my thinkpad x200 win7 system , i met a problem.


    when colinux start, run to "Calibrating delay loop" , the whole win7 systme hang! can not move cursor and do any thing else.


    hardware: thinkpad x200 , cpu: p8600@2.40GHz, 2.40GHz, memory: 2GB

    os:  win7

    coliux version: 0.7.9,

    linux image: Debian-5.0r2-lenny

    start script: debian.bat

    set COLINUX_CONSOLE_FONT=Lucida Console:12
    start /affinity 2 "colinux-daemon.exe -d -v 3 -t nt @debian-lenny.conf"

    conf: debian-lenny.conf
    # This is an example for a configuration file that can
    # be passed to colinux-daemon in this manner:
    #    colinux-daemon @example.conf
    # Note that you can still prepend or append configuration and
    # boot parameters before and after '@', or you can use more
    # that one '@ to load several settings one after another.
    #    colinux-daemon @example.conf @overrider.conf mem=32
    # Full list of config params is listed in colinux-daemon.txt.

    # The default kernel

    # File contains the root file system.
    # Download and extract preconfigured file from SF "Images for 2.6".

    # Swap device, should be an empty file with 128..512MB.

    # Tell kernel the name of root device (mostly /dev/cobd0,
    # /dev/cobd/0 on Gentoo)
    # This parameter will be forward to Linux kernel.

    # Additional kernel parameters (ro = rootfs mount read only)

    # Initrd installs modules into the root file system.
    # Need only on first boot.

    # Maximal memory for linux guest

    # Select console size, default is 80x25

    # Slirp for internet connection (outgoing)
    # Inside running coLinux configure eth0 with this static settings:
    # ipaddress   broadcast   netmask
    # gateway    nameserver

    # Tuntap as private network between guest and host on second linux device

    # Setup for serial device
    #ttys0=COM1,"BAUD=115200 PARITY=n DATA=8 STOP=1 dtr=on rts=on"

    # Run an application on colinux start (Sample Xming, a Xserver)
    #exec0=C:\Programs\Xming\Xming.exe,":0 -clipboard -multiwindow -ac"

    Add lpj to the kernel command line:

    root=/dev/cobd0 lpj=40000000

    The value does no matter, because coLinux does not use bogomips for delays.

    An other problem can be the /affinity. coLinux by default will run on CPU0, you can not force to use other CPU with the start command. Please try to run coLinux without this.
