*** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of bug 494884 ***
Comment 4 Justin Sherrill 2009-06-25 11:49:53 EDT
re-opening as this looks like a different cause as 494884
Comment 5 Partha Aji 2009-06-25 18:59:39 EDT
Basic issue is that rhn-virtualization-host package did not get installed, because it was not signed and that cause the guest installation to fail. Try it with a signed rhn-virtualization-host and it shoudl work..
Comment 6 Preethi Thomas 2009-07-02 14:54:48 EDT
with rhn-virtualization-host installed 
xen-guest kickstarted and without the Invalid function call error.
Comment 7 Steve Salevan 2009-08-06 15:20:29 EDT
RELEASE_PENDING from 7/24 build.
