I'm just now getting a chance to dive into the demo, and I was getting the page fault too, anytime I tried to do anything after entering usermode. I have the virtual memory manager patch.

I solved it this way. The original code from the virtual memory manager initialization procedure was:
Code: Select all
  pt_entry_add_attrib(&page, I86_PTE_PRESENT);
  pt_entry_add_attrib(&page, I86_PTE_WRITABLE);

The code from the demo is:
Code: Select all
  pt_entry_add_attrib(&page, I86_PTE_PRESENT);
  pt_entry_add_attrib(&page, I86_PTE_USER);

So I commented out the writeable attribute and added the user one, and was getting the page fault. However, after changing it to...
Code: Select all
  pt_entry_add_attrib(&page, I86_PTE_PRESENT);
  pt_entry_add_attrib(&page, I86_PTE_WRITABLE);
  pt_entry_add_attrib(&page, I86_PTE_USER);

...all is well. Maybe someone else had the same problem, and this will help them.

my problem happened when I added some stuff to help me on debugging... the code became a little bigger than the original one; ...consequently, I think I found a bug on LOADER... (But now, I take a little break (Christmas), before trying to figure out what can be causing that problem)...

But the Kernel (chapter23) is up and running...

Hello,

Thanks for letting us know. This is indeed a bug - the WRITABLE bit on the PTEs must be set. This will be corrected once the new chapters are uploaded.
