Description Brian Brock 2006-07-24 19:28:12 UTC
kernel-xen-2.6.17-1.2439.fc6.i686 fails to boot on a desktop VT system.
kernel-xen-2.6.17-1.2431.fc6.i686 had an identical failure.
end of the boot output on the console says:

Brought up 2 CPUs
Initializing CPU#1
checking if image is initramfs...

box is hardlocked and completely non-responsive at this point.

problem seems unavoidable on this system, 100% reproduced

Comment 1 Brian Brock 2006-07-24 19:35:25 UTC
vanilla kernel-2.4.17-2439.fc6.i686 doesn't show this bug

Comment 2 Brian Brock 2006-07-25 15:34:41 UTC
doesn't occur in kernel-xen 2.6.17-2445.fc6.i686 on the same system.  Checking
other systems for similar behavior.

Comment 3 Brian Brock 2006-07-31 20:39:49 UTC
Not seen through 2.6.17-1.2478.fc6xen i686 or x86-64, and also not seen in
recent kernels.
