Hello, not sure where to place this post. I have successfully downloaded the TDexpress file, decompressed it on my Macbook Pro. I have Parallels as my VM (VMware like), and have converted the .vmx file to Parallels. As I start the machine, I get the LINUX wit the to F and N flag, I select that then I get what to boot, the SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 11 – 3.0.101-0.125.TDC.1.R.0, and it starts to boot up.
I get an error right away and it freezes up, the error: Fast TSC calibration using Pit and sometimes it says: Fast TSC calibration using Failed. This is a counter, and needs to be disabled from what my research tells me.
I’m having a time to find how I can edit in this parameter: intel_pstate=disable into the kernel at bootup, and make it stick as well. Does anyone have a way or suggestions for me to try. Has anyone else had this issue and found a different workaround?
BTW, I have successfully converted a .oma file to a .vmx file to then convert to a Parallels VM of Netezza, all with Parallels on a Mac, even though designed for Windows running VMware, so I know my hardware and software are not an issue or a contributor to this matter.
Hello, if it is possible for me to find out what the clocksource is within the container for this Sles/TDexpress virtual machine,that would be a great help. I may be able to find the right combination kernel parameters to give it at boot up, and get past the freeze at startup. I've already tried:
intel_pstate=disable, and clocksource=tsc | hpet | acpi_pm variations and so far no good.
Hi, sadly, no, and I tried everything, and nothing, as well as trying a number of other tech forums related to this for more help and advise but to no avail. I'd be great if I could get the VM container of TD to work on my MBP as another VM, I have with Netezza and others.
Well I know that the VM works with VMWare Fusion on OSX - however I am keen for it to work using Parallels. Will post here if I find a solution. Thanks.
I've made a lot of VM's run on Parallels on MacOS, it was a challenge but fun, and have quite a lot of VM's in Parallels on my MBP, so I see making everything a challenge to make it so! :) However I have considerd adding VMware for MacOS to the MBP, if two VM managers can coexist, and then get TD on the same unit, then will test if a tool editor in one VM can connect to TD in yet another VM ran by a different VM manager. Perhaps my new challenge right there. Please do keep me updated on your successes. Thanks
