Description Debarshi Ray 2009-03-13 01:14:24 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):
Comment 1 Chuck Ebbert 2009-03-13 21:44:59 EDT
What kernel version is the f10 machine running? You might need the latest kernel...
Comment 2 Debarshi Ray 2009-03-14 02:18:55 EDT
I am running kernel- on Fedora 10 x86_64 host.
Comment 3 Debarshi Ray 2009-03-14 02:46:18 EDT
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:
+ kernel-2.6.29-0.237.rc7.git4.fc11.x86_64:
    Clocksource tsc unstable (delta = -153867381 ns)
+ kernel-2.6.29-0.218.rc7.git2.fc11.x86_64:
    Clocksource tsc unstable (delta = -275552273 ns)

Since I had updated the Rawhide VM from a Fedora 10 x86_64 preview release, I have kernel- 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'.
Comment 4 Bug Zapper 2009-06-09 08:12:51 EDT
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:
Comment 5 Debarshi Ray 2009-07-27 12:39:44 EDT
I can boot Fedora 11 x86_64 on a Fedora 10 x86_64 VM now. So can this be closed?
Comment 6 Mike Gahagan 2009-08-06 15:43:03 EDT
Thanks for the feedback, I think we can close this now if its working ok for you with current updates.
