Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1025382
3.11.4-101.fc18.x86_64 does not boot in kvm
Last modified: 2013-10-31 14:23:07 EDT

bootup messages of a failed start
Description of problem:
Shortly after the "Welcome to Fedora 18 (Spherical Cow)!" banner the kernel messages will stall and ~5 to 10 seconds later the kvm (f19 libvirt environment) will shutoff.
Booting with the original install kernel, 3.6.10-4.fc18.x86_64, boots successfully.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
fully updated F18
Steps to Reproduce:
1. install F18 in a kvm
new kernel gets partway through boot, stops, then kvm shuts off
The kernel got all the way through boot and handed off to the initramfs, as expected. That seems to also have gotten through it's startup and mounted the guest's rootfs and started systemd from there. I don't see a kernel issue here.
Are there logs on the host side that show it shutting down the guest for some reason? Does the guest reboot and start again, or does it just turn off?
You've setup a serial console on the kernel command line. Is your attachment all you see out of that console for output, or is there anything further?

Ah, dang it. I've run into this error before but forgot:
((null):9102): Spice-ERROR **: red_parse_qxl.c:359:bitmap_consistent: image str
ide too small for width: 1 < ((10 * 1 + 7) / 8) (SPICE_BITMAP_FMT_1BIT_BE=2)
Will dupe and attach log for reference...
