Right now I'm working on a project which utilizes Fiasco/L4Env/L4Linux
environment, so I'm just trying to set it up on my workstation.
Unfortunately,  I have encountered some problems which bothered me for days.
Could anybody help me out? Any help or suggestions would be appreciated,
Thank you.

Here is the boot information when I try to boot L4linux: (I have also
attached a screen shot)


loader : vmlinux: starting sigma0-style application

loader : vmlinux: loading binary
loader : vmlinux,#d: Entry at 00009f3c => 00400000
loader : vmlinux,#d: Started
loader : vmlinux,#d: Double PF (r) at 00000000 eip 00000000 (D.00)
-- Double PF,"g" for kill------------------------------IP: 013043a5

Here is some of my setup info:

VMware version: 6.5
Host OS: Fedora 10 (Linux Kernel Version: 2.6.27)
Gcc Version: 4.3.2
Grub Version: 0.97

L4Env config: default
build command: make oldconfig O=/path-to-buildu-dir && make

Fiasco config: default + 'Handle and preserve segments' option was enabled
CPU type: Intel Pentium / AMD k5
build command:
  cd kernel/fiasco &&  make BUILDDIR=/path-to-buildk-dir
  cd /path-to-buildk-dir && make menuconfig

L4Linux config: x86-native_defconfig + L4 build directory was set to
build command:
  cd l4linux-2.6 && make x86-native_defconfig && make menuconfig

Grub Config:

L4linux website)

sleep 1
task "vmlinux" "mem=64M load_ramdisk=1 ramdisk_size=16384 root=/dev/ram

BTW: When I tried to compile L4Env, the linker complains it couldn't find
libz.a(by -lz option), so I build libz.a under l4/pkg/zlib separately and
copied it to the build/lib directory manually, and the whole thing works!
I'm not sure whether it's a problem of the Makefile or a problem of my
configuration environment.
