Hi everyone!

I have downloaded and compiled freevms 0.0.43 with uml following the
instructions from the HOWTO. The kernel then freezes just after calling
execve() for the init process (I boot with init=/bin/sh as suggested),
spitting out the message:

I'm tracing myself and I can't get out

I have no idea on how to proceed. I'm using the slackware 8.1 root_fs
provided in user-mode-linux.sourceforge.net and uml-patch-2.4.18-11
provided in your ftp.

Additionally I would like to ask if anyone knows how could I read an
OpenVMS VAX 7.2 hobbyist CD from linux. I have an old VAXStation 3100
with no CD drive and a broken HD drive, and would like to know if I
could possibly get OpenVMS to run on it.

Thanks very much in advance for your help.
