Description Jaromír Cápík 2013-06-06 07:40:32 EDT
Description of problem:

I just upgraded my workstation from F17 to F18 and can't start my RHEL5 guest anymore. The issue is present with qemu-kvm only. When I start the guest with qemu-system-x86_64, it seems to run without problems (just terribly sloooow).
There seems to be some kind of loop, because the qemu-kvm process eats the whole CPU and nothing happens.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Comment 1 Jaromír Cápík 2013-06-06 07:44:32 EDT
Note : RHEL6 guest and Fedora Rawhide seems to run correctly.
Comment 2 Paolo Bonzini 2013-06-20 08:05:55 EDT
What kernel version?  Might be a dup of bug 967652.
Comment 3 Jaromír Cápík 2013-06-20 09:51:49 EDT
uname -a says it's 3.9.2-200.fc18.x86_64
Comment 4 Jaromír Cápík 2013-06-20 09:54:47 EDT
tested guest kernels ... 2.6.18-8.el5 and 2.6.18-348.el5
Comment 5 Cole Robinson 2013-07-11 17:11:25 EDT
I think this is a dup, please reopen if I'm wrong.
