Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 220134
Latest xen kernel causes multiple oops; system unusable; clock too fast
Last modified: 2009-12-14 15:40:09 EST
Description of problem:
I had previously tried the Xen version of kernel 2849 but the clock seemed to be
running twice as quickly as it should. So, tonight I updated the kernel and
tried the latest version. The problem of the clock running too quickly is still
there. This time, once I had logged in, desktop applications were crashing and
I was unable to select any windows. I had to use Alt-SysRq to sync the
filesystem and reboot.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot to current Xen kernel and login
Clock runs too quickly and system becomes unusable
System should run normally
Created attachment 143974 [details]
/var/log/messages with irrelevant gdm and autofs debugging messages removed
I am unable to boot this version of the kernel. Screen goes black around
the time rhgb cuts in then nothing, system is completely dead.
Non-xen kernel (kernel-2.6.18-1.2868.fc6) boots fine and seems to work OK.
I can confirm this is still the case with the latest released kernel
