Description Alexander Lindqvist 2008-11-07 10:48:35 EST
Description of problem:
Dom0 cannot boot kernel-xen-2.6.18-92.1.17.el5.i686 (blinking cursor after GRUB)
kernel-xen-2.6.18-92.1.13.el5.i686 boots correctly

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
kernel-xen-2.6.18-92.1.17.el5.i686

How reproducible:
Install kernel-xen-2.6.18-92.1.17.el5.i686.rpm and try to boot it on Dom0. Not all hardware is affected.
  
Actual results:
Dom0 does not boot at all, domU's boots this kernel ok.

Expected results:
Well it should boot...

Comment 1 Simon Matter 2008-11-07 11:32:49 EST
Did anybody care to try the "original" RedHat build just to make 100% sure it's not a build issue of the CentOS build. We are using RHEL and CentOS on our servers but the affected one is CentOS for now and I simply can't risk to reboot it until I get close to the hardware (the box in question doesn't have any ILO whatever card). Would be nice someone could confirm that the RedHat build is also affected.
