This is still broken, and fc5t1 is frozen now.
Please could you tell me what the problem?

Comment 2 Need Real Name 2005-12-01 15:09:10 UTC
Lack of interest. Do you want this closed?

Comment 3 Stephen Tweedie 2006-01-18 18:03:35 UTC
There has been a significant rebasing of the kernel and HV images for fc5t2. 
Can you still reproduce the problem?

If so, then this sounds like a mismatch between the memory calculations in the
HV/bootloader and the kernel.  The full Xen logs would be really useful in
tracking this down; is it possible for you to capture that to a serial console?
 That, in conjunction with the normal non-xen boot logs, should let us examine
the memory maps being computed in both cases to see if there's a mismatch somewhere.

You _may_ be able to work around this by adding the "dom0_mem=...M" option to
the xen hypervisor line ("kernel=xen...") in /etc/grub.conf.  If you assign
(say) only half your physical memory to dom0 on boot, does that work?

Comment 4 Stephen Tweedie 2006-01-18 18:09:16 UTC
There are a number of other reports of this in bug 172406: I'll close this one
as a dup to keep the majority of the reports in one place.  Please followup in
the other bug report.
