Description of problem:
Attempting to start Xen on unpatched kernel results in script exiting with no
error output.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 3.0.3

How reproducible: Very

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Install xen from yum.  Do not reboot or boot to a non-patched kernel.  
2.Run /sbin/service xend start
3.The script will exit with no output whatsoever.
Actual results: None

Expected results: Error message

Additional info: Should be easy to fix.

By non-patched kernel, do you mean you are running the non-Xen kernel?
Comment 2 Daniel Berrange 2008-07-22 05:24:58 EDT
This is intentional behaviour. We want people to be able to easily reboot
between Xen and non-Xen kernel without having to turn initscripts on/off to get
rid of failures. It is fairly standard behaviour for initscripts to silently
exit if their pre-requisites aren't present.
