ext4 is enabled as module. Maybe you needs to unpack modules manualy
and run "depmod". Some older builds was created with wrong format in
the file "modules.dep" fom my new depmod. The path list was without
"/lib/modules/2.6.33-co-0.8.0" I have adjusted today.
Please check that you truly not have a "crash dump" in your
directory "C:\WINDOWS\Minidump\". For the BSOD I need the stack
backtrace from WinDbg.exe to fix it. Please read section "Howto use
Windows crash dump" in the file doc/debugging in source or
debugging.txt in your installation.
Have you rebootet Windows after replaceing the driver? This problem
I have some times seen at work, by replacing linux.sys with same or
newer version - all with kernel 2.6.22.
Running colinux-debug-daemon or running colinux-daemon with option
"-v n" where "n > 0" can also crash some times on shutdown (very
I ask, because the linux.sys was not changed between kernel 2.6.22
and 2.6.33, and BSOD I have long not seen.
Have you some special kernel options in the coLinux config?
How many RAM you have in Windows and how many is for coLinux? Is PAE
(Physical Adress Extension) enabled? You will see it with Key
Win+Pause. Not try to use more as 800MB. If you use to many lowram,
then the kernel has not enouth virrtual memory. I have not checket
the total limit for this kernel.
You can see the sizes at boot, for example:
vmalloc : 0xc8800000 - 0xfe7fe000 ( 863 MB)

I do not have a crash dump. But it that helps I am running
AMD Athlon 64 3Ghz with WinXP SP3. I have been running
colinux 0.8.0 as service for years with kernel 2.6.22 and 2.6.25
and I have never seen a BSOD.
Congrats for your impresive work.

I have seen that you are working on kernel
2.6.33-rc8, I was going to test it but your warning
about data corruption scares me.
I have read that udev is working on colinux
kernel 2.6.33-rc8 and I would like to make the
jump, do you think it is ready?
The text about filesystem corruption was from early
beginning with crashing kernel - depend on the problem of
host memory mapping. The memory problem is fixed with a
slow alternate. All memory allocations are much slower
not, for example on spawning new task.
It's ready for beta testers. I have no crashes and no BSOD
since 2.6.33-rc6 one month ago. I have short tested all
basic functions, but have no long time tests. I don't know
how it works in different environments. If more people
would test it and report good state, I would feel me
