kernel-2.6.29-0.218 does not boot on an x86_64 VM
Last modified: 2009-08-06 15:43:03 EDT
Description of problem:
The two most recent Rawhide kernels fail to boot on a x86_64 KVM based virtual machine created by a Fedora 10 Virt Manager.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
What kernel version is the f10 machine running? You might need the latest 126.96.36.199 kernel...
I am running kernel-188.8.131.52-170.2.35.fc10.x86_64 on Fedora 10 x86_64 host.
I updated the hosts libvirt and virt-manager to the latest versions from Fedora 10's update-testing without any luck. They fail, as before, with the following messages seen if 'Esc' was hit immediately after hitting 'Enter' in Grub:
Clocksource tsc unstable (delta = -153867381 ns)
Clocksource tsc unstable (delta = -275552273 ns)
Since I had updated the Rawhide VM from a Fedora 10 x86_64 preview release, I have kernel-184.108.40.206-68.fc10 on it and it does boot.
Not sure if this is related or not, but I have some SELinux related problems probably due to the messy upgrade from Fedora 10 preview to post Fedora 11 alpha Rawhide -- RPM, OpenSSL, Python 2.6, etc -- and I am using 'enforcing=0'.
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 11 development cycle.
Changing version to '11'.
More information and reason for this action is here:
I can boot Fedora 11 x86_64 on a Fedora 10 x86_64 VM now. So can this be closed?
Thanks for the feedback, I think we can close this now if its working ok for you with current updates.
