Bugs[edit | edit source]

  • Just like in Ubuntu 5.04, booting from the installation media fails on QEMU 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 has been fixed in Ubuntu 6.06.
