Objet : [coLinux-users] BSOD on Intel Core 2 Duo, Windows Vista

Hi all

(I posted this to the help forum, but did not receive any response, so
trying out here)

coLinux 0.7.1 RC3 crashed with a BSOD when I tried to run it on Windows
Vista, Intel Core 2 Duo (2GB RAM). I am aware of the coLinux problem on new
CPUs and operating systems that support "noexecute" as documented here:

I have read people managing to run coLinux on Windows Vista on the web. So,
I just wanted to know:

a. Can coLinux 0.7.1 or 0.8.0 run on Windows Vista, Intel Core 2 Duo with
DEP setting set to default "OptIn"?

b. Does the "noexecute" problem in coLinux need to be fixed on a
per-processor basis? (as it has been done for Intel P4 and Xeon)

c. Does the fix for Intel P4 and Xeon processors allow coLinux to run on
Windows Vista (or Windows XP SP2) on those processors with DEP setting set
to default "OptIn"?

d. I am no OS expert, can someone explain (or point to an existing thread)
as to why this "noexecute" setting causes the coLinux to crash, where as
essential Windows programs and services keep running?

Answers to above questions, will rule out the doubt that I may have made an
error during my installation.
