Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 470893
Latest kernel problem with X in a VM
Last modified: 2008-11-12 17:06:41 EST
Description of problem:
With the latest stable kernel (184.108.40.206-79.fc9.x86_64) in a kvm virtual machine, starting X makes the machine go to 100% load, and the only way to recover is to destroy the vm and restart it.
Older kernels have no problems. Not using X is also ok.
Latest kernel + X == FAIL
Happens only when the guest uses x86_64 afaics, a previous test with an updated vm with i686 didn't show any problem (but I deleted that vm so I cannot retest now).
The host is a T60 laptop with this same x86_64 kernel.
