Bugs[edit | edit source]

  • On QEMU, booting from the installation media fails due to a kernel panic where IO-APIC and timer are not syncing if the processor is set to pentium or newer. You will need to set the processor to 486 in order to install Ubuntu, although this will cause installation to take a long time. This bug persists all the way up to Ubuntu 5.10, as it has been fixed in Ubuntu 6.06.
