I have the same failure with VMware Fusion 2.0 (116369) running on Mac OS X 10.5.5. Attached is a screenshot right before it errors out.

Same problem here... Any workaround or known reason?

Hi all. We recognize that this is an important defect and will prioritize fixing this in an incremental release. We'll follow up with an internal bug number shortly.

And, I also have exactly the same with the other virtualizer that works on windows that is not virtual PC: VirtualBox.

For the workaround, that's easy: use virtual PC; that's only virtualizer that can make Singularity working!

Same issue on VirtualBox + Linux.

Hi,

It seems that "DefObjectType" is not supported. I have no experience regarding acpi. Still hope it helps.

ALl the best,
Alex

Hi,

As stated in the related discussion there are actually 2 problems:
  1. amlparser is not fully implemented so the acpi handling must be disabled (comment the define at the beginning of the RegisterPC.cs file <- I think that's the file)
  2. some problem in the rtclock handling if 2 cpus are active in the vm so you should have only one
Hope it helps,
Alex.

Hi,

Ok vesa works on VMWare. You just have to enable it in blentry.cpp. See attached image. Hmm.. Why is it disabled? something to do with acpi?? I have to search for this after I get pong running.

Happy coding,
Alex.

Hmm.. ds1 assertion still occurs, but it seems that it still works ... hmmm. So many questions :D

What would it take to get Sing to run under VirtualBox? Having to run two pieces of VM hosting software is inconvenient.

I got this problem booging from a CD on a real computer (no VM).
