Description of problem:
Xen HV fails to load FC6 HVM guest with updates kernel for FC6
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
(If I updated to xen-3.0.3-9.el5 from nightly, same problem occurs)
Allways happens here.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install a FC6 HVM guest
2. Boot it, see that everything works
3. yum upgrade kernel on the FC6 guest
Kernel don't boot, stoops at the middle of the boot.
New kernel is: kernel-2.6.18-1.2849.fc6
attached log of failed boot.
Kernel booting as with the previous kernel.
old kernel is: kernel-2.6.18-1.2798.fc6
I got the same problems on x86_64. In two different machines (but both of them
Core 2 based).
Created attachment 142381 [details]
failed boot with 2.6.18-1.2849.fc6
I can reproduce this on a i686 Intel Core Duo too.
As mentioned on at least one internal mailing list, this is due to the new
auto-apic patch the FC6 updates kernel is carrying. It also breaks systems
running LinuxBOIS (no DMI tables whatsoever) and a few boxes with wonky DMI
tables -- see bug 215154 for additional info.
I installed a FC6, and the kernel boots. But of course this is kernel-2798.
Given that this one was for FC6 guests, and rostedt seems to have changed it to
MODIFIED, going to close it out as CURRENTRELEASE.
