Booting a paravirt xen install of rawhide stalls after mounting ext3
Last modified: 2013-01-09 21:33:09 EST
I installed rawhide from 20060909 into paravirt xen (x86_64 and i386).
Installation goes mostly OK, however upon reboot the system gets no further than:
Registering block device major 202
xvda: xvda1 xvda2
device-mapper: ioctl: 4.7.0-ioctl (2006-06-24) initialised: email@example.com
kjournald starting. Commit interval 5 seconds
EXT3-fs: mounted filesystem with ordered data mode.
I can send a shutdown command w/ xm shutdown <domain> and the screen outputs:
Removing netfilter NETLINK layer.
md: stopping all md devices.
Did you set up a graphics console? If so, were you connected with vncviewer?
Hrm, I was not... I just did xm create -c <confname>. On my x86_64 system it
goes all the way to login prompt, and then shortly afterward crashed the host
due to smp codes....
xm create -c is only going to give you the "serial" console right now (the same
nonsensical behavior that you get with fully virt). I've got a note to fix that
up, but not sure if that'll make FC6 at this point -- virt-manager gets things
But I expect that this isn't hung and it's just that you're not getting the
console output because it's going to the fbcon.
.. and things work fine for me on a fresh install
I can no longer reproduce. NOTABUG.
