Spent the last couple of hours trying to get UML based on the latest -vanilla kernel (2.6.2-rc1) to compile and boot. It compiles, after taking care of the extable changes, but dies immediately after boot with:

muli@hydra:~/kernel/uml/src$ ./linux debug 
Checking for the skas3 patch in the host...not found 
Checking for /proc/mm...not found 
Segmentation fault 

I’m too tired to deal with this right now. Will wait for tomorrow, or jdike, whichever happens first 😉


  1. may you get it working for i may be the next erm victim.

  2. What is the meaning of UML in this context? I’m pretty sure it isn’t “unified modeling language”.

    • It was discussed on the user-mode-linux mailing lists in the past, look for ‘exec-shield’.
