Description Nalin Dahyabhai 2006-06-19 16:20:21 EDT
Description of problem:
The 'xend' service, which is enabled by default, spews an error message when it
attempts to start when run on a non-Xen kernel.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot kernel-2.6.16-1.2289_FC6
2. /sbin/service xend start
Actual results:
grep: /proc/xen/capabilities: No such file or directory

Expected results:
Something else, probably.

The initscript should check and if not on a xen kernel (maybe just by checking
if [ -d /proc/xen]), exit silently.
Comment 2 Jeremy Katz 2006-09-21 16:33:40 EDT
This is fixed now
