Description Jonathan Underwood 2008-01-11 19:07:37 EST
Description of problem: I have a guest installation of Windows XP Pro running insde qemu-kvm. The guest is however unusable because after it's been up for a about a minute it starts to periodically hang for 10-20 seconds at a time, during which time the mouse doesn't move, the display doesn't update, no response to keyboard. i am connecting to the guest instance using virt-manager and friends, and when the guest is frozen, I can happily Ctrl-Alt out of the windo i.e. the host is not hanging. This is on an intel x86_64. This has occured with all F8 kernels as released so far. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): kvm-36-7.fc8 How reproducible: Everytime Steps to Reproduce: 1.Boot guest 2.Watch it hang.

On my Core 2 Duo (Merom) laptop, the installation of XP did not even finish. I conservatively used 1 CPU (not 2, just in case KVM's SMP support is the problem), and it froze when registering components. Using kvm-60 from Rawhide (no other changes; using latest update kernel from F8) fixes the issue. Please consider updating the F8 version?

This message is a reminder that Fedora 8 is nearing its end of life. Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining and issuing updates for Fedora 8. It is Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora 'version' of '8'. Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 8's end of life. Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 8 is end of life. If you would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this bug to the applicable version. If you are unable to change the version, please add a comment here and someone will do it for you. Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes bugs or makes them obsolete. The process we are following is described here: http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/BugZappers/HouseKeeping
