Comment 2 RHEL Product and Program Management 2010-07-26 09:38:00 EDT
This issue has been proposed when we are only considering blocker
issues in the current Red Hat Enterprise Linux release.

** If you would still like this issue considered for the current
release, ask your support representative to file as a blocker on
your behalf. Otherwise ask that it be considered for the next
Red Hat Enterprise Linux release. **

How much memory did you give to the guest?

Comment 5 Chris Lumens 2010-07-26 11:25:59 EDT
That should definitely be enough.

Is there any more information available?  Is there a more detailed message on tty1?  Anything in tty3 or tty4 that might explain what's going on?

This is very likely caused by bug 607650, marking as dup.
