Comment 2 Peter Backes 2007-03-30 13:34:53 EDT
I have similar issues (kernel-xen-2.6.20-1.2933.fc6 hangs/crashes; works fine
with kernel-xen-2.6.19-1.2911.6.5.fc6). I can reproduce it by copying a 80GB
partition with dd if=/dev/sda6 of=/dev/sda5 bs=128b, which will cause the
problem to occur within two or three minutes. Without I/O load, the system runs
fine for several days.

bug #234008 may have useful information for this bug, also. Maybe #234008 also 
have the same cause of this one.
Comment 6 Rolf Fokkens 2007-04-14 07:42:40 EDT
Latest greatest kernel-xen-2.6.20-1.2944 also hangs during boot. For a while all
goes well, and then during the startup of some service is totally locks up.
Comment 7 Mykola Lyakhovych 2007-04-30 07:02:56 EDT
Looks like duplicate for bug #238403
Comment 8 Rolf Fokkens 2007-05-04 13:17:21 EDT
For those who care: kernel-xen-2.6.20-1.2948 also locks up. I'm personally very
happy with KVM as it gives some alternative.
Comment 9 Jan ONDREJ 2007-05-21 03:41:04 EDT
I think this problem is still not solved. ;-(
And kernel-xen-2.6.19 packages was removed from fedora updates directory so I
can't install new guests with this kernel. :-(
Can somebody fix this bud or give back kernel-xen-2.6.19 into updates?
Is this bug also in Fedora 7 ?

Does kernel-xen-2.6.19 working for somebody?

I am attaching dmesg-s from my another machine. Machine is working well, but
applications hangs sometimes.

The problem was fixed on FC7, and it is being fixed for FC6.

I am marking this ticket was duplicate of bug 234008, as bug 234008 is being 
used as the main ticket for those do_iret_error() and evtchn_upcall() Oopses 
on FC6.
