Screenshot of fedora18 as guest on fedora 18 host with xen
Description of problem:
I have compiled xen-4.1.2 on fedora 18 and installed fedora 18 as VM using virt-manager.But there is something wrong with my display on fedora 18 VM. I've attached a screenshot of my VM.
I've compiled xen-4.1.2 on fedora 17 host before, and installed Fedora13-x86-64 and fedora17-i686 as VM and they have no problem, but also when I tried before to install fedora17-x86-64 as guest on fedora 17 or fedora18 host it said unable to start X and send me to install text mode or use vnc.(I'm not sure these two problems related or not)
I'm not sure what's the source of problem xen, virt-manager or fedora! I also contact virt-manager mailinglist and they wanted me to report it as a bug for fedora.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
I've have just this problem when trying to install fedora18-x86-64 as VM on fedora17 host with xen-4.1.2
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Install xen on a fedora host
2.Install fedora18 as VM using virt-manager or even the commandline virt-install
3.When fedora 18 is installed as VM its display has problem.
On the mailing list I didn't realize you were compiling your own xen. Does this reproduce with F18 xen packages, which are actually newer than xen 4.1 ?
