Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 469695
Virtualization Guide, section 29.6. not self-consistent
Last modified: 2009-08-19 23:31:51 EDT
Description of problem:
in section 29.6. of the Virtualization Guide we're not really making sense.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. try to find out how to set up serial output for dom0
confusion, the text in the box does not match the least the description below it.
- clear explanation of the options needed for serial in dom0
- clear explanation of the options needed for serial in domU
for dom0 serial it seems
the following is right (obviously replace BANANA and SOMETHING)
kernel /xen.gz-SOMETHING com1=57600,8n1
module /vmlinuz-SOMETHING ro root=LABEL=/ console=ttyS0,57600
This bug may already be resolved by bz 432235
Refer to the latest version of the Virtualization Guide to confirm the change.

While that covers many sections, 29.6 does not seem covered by that bug

That still looks wrong, maybe better if it uses the text Chris wrote up for 19.5 in Bug 432235 comment #4
I'm actually confused now; I'm not sure what the relationship between the link I read for BZ 432235 (http://www.redhat.com/docs/manuals/enterprise/RHEL-5-manual/Virtualization-en-US/ch-virt-serialconsole-errors.html) and the RHEL virtualization guide in this BZ (http://documentation-stage.bne.redhat.com/docs/en-US/Red_Hat_Enterprise_Linux/5.2/html/Virtualization/) is. In any case, in the virtualization guide section that this BZ talks about, we can use the same writeup I did for 432235 to fix it up; just look at Comment #4 over there, and use that text to replace 29.6, 29.7, 29.8 in *this* guide.
Worked through my backlog. This bug wasn't actually assigned to me but it should be.
This bug should be fixed now. A bit of an issue with linking it seems.
