Description Daniel Malmgren 2006-10-11 04:17:54 EDT
Description of problem: Trying to start compiz crashes when my computer is booted with a xen kernel. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): kernel-xen-2.6.18-1.2747.fc6 xen-3.0.2-44 compiz-0.0.13-0.32.20060817git.fc6 How reproducible: 100% Steps to Reproduce: 1. Boot computer using a xen kernel 2. Try starting compiz Actual results: Either the computer freezes so hard I've got to use the power switch to fix it, or it simply reboots by itself. Additional info: System works perfectly nice when booted with non xen kernel. It also works very nice in xen mode when using metacity (exactly same xorg config). This is on a Znote6015WD laptop with Core2Duo processor running x86_64 Fedora. Is there any way that I can extract any more useful information?

Hmm. If you have a serial port on the laptop then serial console ought to be helpful. If not, then netconsole may work, depending on what sort of ethernet controller it has.
Comment 2 Daniel Malmgren 2006-10-12 05:23:00 EDT
A modern laptop with a serial port? ;-) I think I need some help with getting the netconsole to work. I've done the following: On the laptop (10.11.22.102): # modprobe netconsole # email@example.com/eth0,firstname.lastname@example.org/00:30:05:89:96:D5 ...and disabled the firewall for udp 6666 On my other machine (10.11.22.52): # nc -u -l 6666 ...and likewisely disabled the firewall This does not seem to do the trick. I've got no kernel source installed. Where do I find the netlogging.txt file?
Comment 3 Steven Rostedt 2006-10-16 17:27:51 EDT
Looks like you did the netconsole options on a separate line. Try again like this: # modprobe netconsole email@example.com/eth0,firstname.lastname@example.org/00:30:05:89:96:D5 That might work better. Unless it was just a typo on this bz comment. Also, test out the logging with a "echo m > /proc/sysrq-trigger" You can get the netconsole documentation from the kernel source at kernel.org. It's in Documentation/networking/netconsole.txt. I don't know about a netlogging.txt file.
Comment 4 Steven Rostedt 2006-10-17 10:45:08 EDT
Make sure the options and modprobe of netconsole are on the same line ( I should have put a backslash there). Like # modprobe netconsole \ email@example.com/eth0,firstname.lastname@example.org/00:30:05:89:96:D5
Comment 5 Daniel Malmgren 2006-10-19 07:24:29 EDT
I'd just like to note that I'll probably not get any useful debug output out from this computer. The only way I have got my network to work is using NetworkManager, and I can't seem to get NetworkManager to put the net up in any other way than using the nm-applet. And I can't reach the nm-applet without X, which doesn't work. Which is also different from what I first reported, because then I succeeded to start X. Well, whatever. I'm quite sure now that this bug is a dupe of 207432, since what Naoki describes fits perfectly well on my system right now. Closing.
Comment 6 Daniel Malmgren 2006-10-19 07:26:12 EDT
*** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 207432 ***
Comment 7 Naoki 2006-10-19 07:32:31 EDT
I'm not running compiz though, and 207432 is listed as a duplicate of this ticket.
Comment 8 Daniel Malmgren 2006-10-19 08:15:06 EDT
(In reply to comment #7) > I'm not running compiz though, and 207432 is listed as a duplicate of this ticket. I'm quite sure now that it had nothing with Compiz to do. It's just simply X being very unstable and happened to crash while I was starting Compiz twice. And no, 207432 is not listed as a duplicate of this, it's the other way. Makes a world of difference ;-)
