Comment 1 Alejandro Liu 2011-03-14 08:26:59 UTC
This used to work quite well in Fedora 14 (and F13).

When I manually add to .treeinfo (just like in Fedora 14):

----
[images-xen]
kernel = images/pxeboot/vmlinuz
initrd = images/pxeboot/initrd.img
----

The CentOS 5.5 virt-installer is able to find the kernel and initrd files.  However the kernel panics soon after (unable to find root) looks like it is not recognising the initrd image.

Output of virt-install

virt-install --name=f15 --disk pool=default,size=15 --ram=512 --vcpus=1 --location=nfs:172.20.128.101:/data/d01/tlbox/swrepo/f15dev-os-x86_64 --nographics --paravirt --network=network:vlan0

The nfs location is a mirror of the "development/15/x86_64/os" repository.

Comment 3 Alejandro Liu 2011-03-14 08:40:52 UTC
I believe this should be a "blocker" bug as it impact the following release criteria:

15. The release must boot successfully as a virtual guest in a situation where the virtual host is running a supported Xen implementation

Agreed.  

mgracik: if you agree, I'll go ahead and mark this as an accepted beta blocker.

Comment 5 Martin Gracik 2011-03-15 12:17:56 UTC
I agree, I already have a patch for this in rawhide.

Comment 6 Fedora Update System 2011-03-15 14:19:54 UTC

Comment 7 Alejandro Liu 2011-03-15 16:21:40 UTC
Hi,

Took another look at the output logs and the telling item is:

[    0.000000] initrd too large to handle, disabling initrd

Since F15 does not use the stage2.img, the initrd.img becomes too big for Xen (at least the CentOS 5.5 build) which uses xen 3.0.3.

That is a new and different issue from what is being tracked in this bug report.  Can you please open a new bug report against the kernel for this?  You may also want to raise this topic for discussion on virt@lists.fedoraproject.org.

Comment 9 Alejandro Liu 2011-03-15 17:38:15 UTC
Sorry, actually my issue is related to

https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=682555

And the increased memory requirements by Anaconda (I was using a 512M VM).

Comment 10 Fedora Update System 2011-03-21 14:01:51 UTC

Comment 11 James Laska 2011-03-21 17:43:10 UTC
Verified this fix in a private boot.iso build using the updated lorax.  The generated .treeinfo contains [images-xen]
