On a Windows 10 host with Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-9750H CPU @ 2.60GHz I'm trying to setup a virtual machine installation of Redhat Enterprise Linux 4 to test scenarios for migration project to a modern version.

However within VMWare Workstation 16, Hyper-V and Oracle VM Virtual Box 6.1 I am unable to complete the install. Process anaconda terminates, call trace references vsnprintf, seq_printf, inode_has_perm, show_cpuinfo, seq_read, vfs_read and system_class.

I've tried text installation, noapic, noprobe options during install but so far have same issue.

Any suggestions if there is config change or install options that can allow this to complete?

CentOS-4.8-x86_64-binDVD.iso works just fine here albeit I had to add nmi_watchdog=0 as a kernel boot argument to be able to boot.

I'm using VirtualBox 6.1.26 and created the configuration (RAM: 2GB, Disk: 8GB) using a CentOS 4 moniker.

  • The DVD version that you mention was the only one I could get working with nmi watchdog option. Excellent. I guess it must have some patch for the issue I was facing. Sep 15, 2021 at 6:56
