Description of problem:

Testest on: HP Proliant DL380 G4
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

3. endless reboot
Actual Results: machine does an endless reboot cycle.
last working version (for me) is kernel-xen0-2.6.12-1.1390
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.
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.
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.

Dave, *please* don't suggest errata for normal kernels as a response for issues
with Xen kernels, I'm begging you...
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.
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.
