Console output during boot
Description of problem:
On a x86_64 RHEL-5.3 based host, I can boot a x86_64 rawhide kernel on Xen without trouble. The corresponding i386 PAE kernel crashes & burns with several panic / bug traces during boot.
I can't remember whether rawhide is expected to work in a 32-on-64 environment, but figure we should have a bug to record the problem regardless.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Host kernel: 2.6.18-103.el5.x86_64
Steps to Reproduce:
1. virt-install --location http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/fedora/linux/development/i386/os/ --name rawhidei386 --ram 500 --nodisks --paravirt --nographics
Several bug / panic traces on boot
Boots into installer
