I'm running debian lenny on vmware server 2 and all is working fine with my built kernel 2.6.35-14. I have built a new kernel 3.2.31 with quite the same options and it crashes on boot with an early exception 0d :
BIOS data check successful
Decompression Linux... Parsing ELF... done
Booting the kernel
PANIC: early exception 0d rip 10:ffffffff819b2547 error 0 cd2 0
The same behavior is occuring on vmware workstation but NOT on vmware ESXi...also, note that all is working fine on virtualbox and different physical servers.
after googling a lot, I have tried to pass the following options to kernel, but no change :
if it helps, I've been able to get different addresses of the exception (the 819b2547 is sometime different), but I don't remeber which parameters changed that.
Does anybody have an idea ?
thanks a lot
