I am new to this group. I am trying to install android-x86 (generic-x86
target) in my Thinkpad T400 series laptop.
I got latest android-x86 source from  and built 
it for generic-x86 target.
It works well if I install and run it in my laptop. No problem at all when
running it in the laptop directly. However if I run it on top of kvm-qemu in
ubunutu - 9.10 (I used the standard kvm-qemu that came with ubuntu-9.10),
when I boot the 'android-x86 generic-x86 target live cd' in kvm-qemu,
sometime after getting the GUI, I get this error following which QEMU stops.
*Error in QEMU window*
Plex86/Bochs VGABios (PCI) current-cvs 02 Nov 2009

cirrus-compatible vga is detected

*Error in command line*
kvm: unhandled exit 7
kvm_run returned -22

having the grub argument "vga=788" also did not help.
It would be great if someone could tell me how to overcome this problem.
