xend init script not returning
Last modified: 2008-02-26 18:10:37 EST
Description of problem:
On first boot of a Raw Hide system I'm left with a hung init script;
1346 ? Ss 0:00 /bin/bash /etc/rc.d/rc 3
2529 ? S 0:00 \_ /bin/bash /etc/rc3.d/S98xend start
2531 ? S 0:00 \_ python /usr/sbin/xend start
2536 ? Z 0:00 \_ [xenconsoled] <defunct>
2537 ? Zs 0:00 \_ [python] <defunct>
(machine has been up an hour in this state)

There does also appear to be a successfully daemonized xend running separately.
2538 ? S 0:00 python /usr/sbin/xend start
2539 ? Sl 0:00 \_ python /usr/sbin/xend start
This is due to Xen not working properly with SELinux right now.
No problem, brian.
At a guess this is the problem with xend not being allowed to create
directories in /var/run ... Joe can you try going to permissive mode, restarting
xend (possibly having to hand kill the old one) shutting it down, going back to
enforcing and starting it.
Is this still reproducible on the latest stable release+updates? Thanks.
