Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 468007
Openfiler 2.3 guest hangs during boot
Last modified: 2014-11-10 07:05:05 EST
Description of problem:
I attempted to install the OpenFiler 2.3 x86_64 ISO release in a KVM guest running on Fedora 9 x86_64 host
The installation completes without trouble, but the subsequent boot hangs. At first it will hang during IDE probe & eventually print a message about TSC being unstable - see attached screenshot.
If i configure & activate a serial console, then it hangs probing that instead.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
openfiler 2.3 x86_64
host kernel 22.214.171.124-86.fc9.x86_64
Steps to Reproduce:
1. virt-install --cdrom /root/openfiler%2F16340%2Fopenfiler-2.3-x86_64-disc1.iso --hvm --file /dev/HostVG/openfiler23 --ram 600 --name openfiler23 --vnc --accelerate -k en-us --network network:default
2. Go through installation
3. Wait for post-installation boot attempt
Created attachment 321133 [details]
Hang when serial port is enabled, but not used for console
Created attachment 321135 [details]
Hang when console configured for 'console=ttyS0 console=tty' in grub
The guest kernel openfiler 2.3 uses is 126.96.36.199-0.2.6.smp.gcc3.4.x86_64
I have lots of RHEL-5 guests on the same machine with work as expected.
Can't reproduce it here, Daniel
Do you have any other sort of info that might be helpful ? Anything suspicious in host dmesg?
Dan, does this happen in F11? If not, we should probably just close
This message is a reminder that Fedora 9 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 9. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '9'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 9's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 9 is end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this
bug to the applicable version. If you are unable to change the version,
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
The process we are following is described here:
Fedora 9 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2009-07-10. Fedora 9 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
