Description Mike McGrath 2007-08-20 17:32:16 EDT
Description of problem:

When attempting to run:

virt-install -p -n publictest3 -r 1024 -f /dev/xenGuests/publictest3
--nographics -l  nfs:server:/path/  -x 'ip= netmask=
gateway= dns= ks=http://myksserver/ks'

It loads up and freezes at:

XENBUS: Device with no driver: device/vbd/51712
XENBUS: Device with no driver: device/vif/0
drivers/rtc/hctosys.c: unable to open rtc device (rtc0)
Freeing unused kernel memory: 200k freed
Write protecting the kernel read-only data: 981k

Presently I'm trying to install rawhide in a xen guest on an x86_64 FC6 box:

I'm not sure if this is a xen issue or not.  I'm actually seeing the same
behavior when trying to install an F7 instance.  I'm seeing it on multiple machines.
Comment 1 Mike McGrath 2007-08-21 15:28:49 EDT
appending -x "console=tty0 console=xvc0" fixes this issue.  Riel says its a 
bug in the kernel that shipped with F7 but it still exists in rawhide it 
Comment 2 Mike McGrath 2007-08-29 23:16:13 EDT
Is this being fixed in rawhide?
Comment 3 Eduardo Habkost 2007-10-23 13:25:54 EDT
I have reported this as bug #348931.

Marking this as duplicate as the other ticket was referenced on changelog and 
contains the patch that was included for F-8.
