Description Mike Bremford 2007-03-21 18:11:51 UTC
Attempting to boot the Xen kernel from FC6 (kernel-xen-2.6.19-1.2911.6.5.fc6) causes an almost 
immediate lockup on this hardware. The boot messages are:

(XEN trace buffers disabled)
Red hat nash starting
Detected soft lock on CPU#0

Hardware wise, it's an HP Proliant ML110 G3 machine with nothing unusual except for an Adaptec 
2410SA SATA RAID card, which works fine with the regular FC6 and earlier kernels back to FC3. I've 
tried "ignorebiostables" and "nolapic" as well as the grub options set by the fedora package, which are:

  /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.19-1.2911.6.5.fc6xen ro root=LABEL=/ noapic acpi=off quiet selinux=0

(for what it's worth, I installed this by first upgrading to FC6 and running "yum upgrade" - all working 
fine - then following the steps outlined in the FedoraXenQuickstartFC6 - ie I ran "yum install kernel-
xen xen virt-manager")

Here's /proc/cpuinfo - if there's anything else I can do or provide please let me know.

This report targets FC6, which is now end-of-life.

Please re-test against Fedora 7 or later, and if the issue persists, open a new bug.
