attached xen/kernel log captured through minicom

xen/kernel boot captured through minicom
A few questions:
Does the corresponding non-xen kernel boot OK? Did any earlier -xen kernels
It would also be very helpful to see a kernel log captured with the "debug" boot
option (it looks like you already have "quiet" turned off, thanks!)

> Does the corresponding non-xen kernel boot OK?
Yes, works fine.
> Did any earlier -xen kernels boot OK?
This is the first time I tried a -xen kernel on this machine. The only other one
I tried was the one that came with the fc6test3 release (2630) which behaved the
same (I then tried to yum upgrade to see if anything newer was available).

I was not aware of turning off "quiet" :)
The captured log was created by using the folllowing in grub (and having a
null-modem cable to another machine):
kernel /boot/xen.gz-2.6.17-1.2647.fc6 com1=115200
module /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.17-1.2647.fc6xen root=/dev/sdb2 console=tty0
What should I pass to provide you with the debug output?
Simply add a "debug" option to the "module" line that specifies the vmlinuz
kernel image, thanks.

Mark: was this still an issue with FC6 final? How about now with latest FC6 updates?
Fedora Core 5 and Fedora Core 6 are, as we're sure you've noticed, no longer
test releases. We're cleaning up the bug database and making sure important bug
reports filed against these test releases don't get lost. It would be helpful if
you could test this issue with a released version of Fedora or with the latest
development / test release. Thanks for your help and for your patience.
[This is a bulk message for all open FC5/FC6 test release bugs. I'm adding
myself to the CC list for each bug, so I'll see any comments you make after this
and do my best to make sure every issue gets proper attention.]

This report targets FC6, which is now end-of-life.
Please re-test against Fedora 7 or later, and if the issue persists, open a new bug.
