Xen kernel reboots workstation.
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:12:03 EST
Description of problem:
Xen kernel reboots my workstation soon after booting, std kernel works fine.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
kernel-xen-2.6.20-1.2944.fc6 & kernel-2.6.20-1.2944.fc6
Happens every time.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Select Xen kernel from grub menu
2. Allow boot to complete
3. Wait a few minutes
Workstation reboots, last entry in the /var/log/messages
May 1 19:49:51 agree-6 kernel: no vm86_info: BAD
May 1 19:49:51 agree-6 kernel: swap_free: Bad swap file entry fffffff7
Selecting std kernel, system is stable and runs without error.
Fairly std config. P4 processor, 2Gb RAM, IDE HDD
This happens to me after I updated from kernel-xen-2.6.19-1.2911.6.5.fc6 to
I after it happened twice, I selected the old 2.6.19 version of the kernel from
the grub menu and have had no problem (my previous uptime on the 2.6.29-1.2911
had been several months).
I don't see any odd messages in the /var/log/messages files from before the
$ cat /proc/cpuinfo | grep name
model name : AMD Athlon(tm) XP 2200+
This looks like the problem reported on bug #234008. Could you test kernel-xen
2.6.20-1.2952.fc6, that is on updates-testing repository?
2952 would appear to resolve the issue, thanks.
