Description of problem:
Tried adding xen to a working and updated FC5 system, running on a VIA
EPIA PD10000 motherboard with 1GB of RAM.
Boot looked normal up to the point where it should switch to a graphical login
screen at which point monitor powered off.... Keyboard Capslock/Numlock still
Followed notes to boot to runlevel 3, diferent symptoms console goes black
with a row of white blocks at the top of the screen. Tapping keyboard yeals
additional block at the bottom of the screen, some white some coloured.
Tried a wipe and reinstall using the notes in the FC5 wiki and an FC5 DVD
cut from the ISO on the website.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. boot from DVD
2. select linux xen0
A non usable system :-(
A usable system :-)
The wiki gave instruction on how to capture console messages via serial cable
As printed this only got the xen start messages, retrying for a nongraphical
runlevel 3 boot also loged the xen0 kernel start messages see attachment
Created attachment 132602 [details]
data to ttyS0 captured with ttywatch
Is this still reproducible on the latest stable release+updates? Thanks.
