Comment 1 Dave Jones 2005-11-10 14:54:08 EST
2.6.14-1.1637_FC4 has been released as an update for FC4.
Please retest with this update, as a large amount of code has been changed in
this release, which may have fixed your problem.

Thank you.
Comment 2 Ignacio Vazquez-Abrams 2005-12-14 04:42:31 EST
I'm seeing the same problem. And no, 2.6.14-1.1637_FC4, or *any* normal kernel
for that matter, won't help since this is a Xen kernel issue.
Comment 3 Dave Jones 2006-02-03 00:49:02 EST
This is a mass-update to all currently open kernel bugs.

A new kernel update has been released (Version: 2.6.15-1.1830_FC4)
based upon a new upstream kernel release.

Please retest against this new kernel, as a large number of patches
go into each upstream release, possibly including changes that
may address this problem.

Comment 4 Ignacio Vazquez-Abrams 2006-02-03 17:40:04 EST
Dave, *please* don't suggest errata for normal kernels as a response for issues
with Xen kernels, I'm begging you...
Comment 5 Dave Jones 2006-02-03 19:12:09 EST
As teh message said, it was an mass-update, (going through all 500 bugs by hand
just isn't feasible).

Xen in FC4 has been a bit of a mess. I'm hoping that once we've got it
stabilised in FC5 we can backport a working release again.
Comment 6 Dave Jones 2006-07-29 01:36:03 EDT
Just getting this stable in FC5 is a huge ordeal. It's likely to stay broken in
FC4 I'm afraid due to lack of resources.
