I'll see if Robert Millan has fixed this in his plex86
debain package when I get a chance.

The file /etc/plex86/winnt as distributed by Debian seems
to lack a few plugins. With the following patch things
work a lot better. I will file a bugreport to Debian about this.

I got the same problem running on a Duron 700...
It's with debian woody, kernel 2.4.16.

Could it be that AMD has some flags that are not properly
handled by plex86???

It seems that you did not registered any plugins, ie the
cmos plugin is not loaded, that's why you get : "No handler
defined for port 0x70 and 0x71".

Now, the funny part : current panic IP is A000:0, that is
the video memory, and current instructon is add ahl, [bx+si,
wich opcode is 0000].
Who knows where the execution path come from ? because this
instruction does not branch, and all the memory is filled
with 0 at boot time...

So I think the execution path comes from somewhere below in
memory, and when it gets to the vga memory, Plex86 panics....

Anyway, please register the plugins in plex86.conf, and try

This is an error I've gotten also.  I'm going to have to check-in with Kevin
before more work can be done on it though, because last time I knew IA-32
didn't have an addb instruction (they call it something else, I
think...).  In any case, that is one that needs to be fixed.  Since it is
looking to add bx to al (and not bl or bh to al, or bx to ax--that and eax, ebx, and
esi are all zero, hmmmmmm), there seems to something funky about it to
start with.  Maybe it is supposed to fire off an exception that we don't
handle properly yet....
