Thread: Yast2 not working on clean minimal server config with XEN

  1. #1

    Post Yast2 not working on clean minimal server config with XEN

    Dear all! I have unexpected problem with yast2 in xen kernel!
    My system is
    MB Asus p8h67-m evo
    CPU Intel i7 2600k cpu
    RAM DDR2 8gb

    Ive install clean minimal server config (11.3 x64), make all updates from yast2, than reboot, than from yast2 start installation of XEN (in Virtualization, not in software management), reboot, set Xen dom0 to boot and than, after login, starting yast2 and got on blue screen with text "Loading modules, please wait ... " this one:

    sbin/yast2: line 399: 5427 Illegal instruction $ybindir/y2base $module "$@" "$SELECTED_GUI" $Y2_GEOMETRY $Y2UI_ARGS
    and return to promt

    in /var/log/YaST2/y2log last string is:
    2011-03-16 17:08:07 <1> linux-1i07(5427) [ncurses] NCstyle.cc(NCstyle):308 Init xterm-color using color => 4 styles in xterm

    in yast2: line 391-399 is

    # break out on errors, #343258
    while [ $exit_code = 0 ]; do
    <------>$ybindir/y2base $module "$@" "$SELECTED_GUI" $Y2_GEOMETRY $Y2UI_ARGS
    <------>exit_code=$?
    <------>if [ -z "$REDO_FILE" -o ! -f "$REDO_FILE" ]; then
    <------> break
    <------>fi
    done
    fi

    and one more, when I reboot and boot from "Desktop -- openSUSE 11.3" yast2 IS WORKING! but only here, not in XEN config

    What Ive did to test this problem:
    first of all google, but its empty for my error
    2. on another computer, not such power and such expensive everything works ok, and if I plug its hard drive to new computer and boot system, yast not working

    3. on new computer i install 11.4x64 - same situation, but 11.1x64 works perfect!
    4. also I try "zypper update" and try reinstall yast2 still same
    5. If I install X window w gnome then xen, yast is loading but when i try to start some of modules its shows same error (ONLY IN XEN config)

    Please help me to resolve this problem, cause i spend already 3 days and 2 nights!

    i don't know, but it kinda sounds like a kernel problem that is not
    gonna be 'solved' in this forum of users helping users....to me, it
    sounds more like a developer (or three) are gonna have to hunt down
    and squash a bug...

    so, you might wanna get a confirming (or laughed at) view from the
    devs (they almost come here, so you have to go there....'there' being
    IRC and/or the mail lists) get with them through this:
    http://en.opensuse.org/openSUSE:Communication_channels

    AND, check back here because a REAL guru might drop in and give the
    the EASY to miss set up option that you need to click . . .

    by the way: i spent some time with xen a few years back and finally
    gave up because there were just too many dark, blind alleys in that
    game.....but i'm a quitter when it looks hopeless....on the other hand
    VBox was drop dead EASY!! and did all i needed..

    good luck.

    OH! i forgot to say: easiest way to get a moderator's attention to
    change the subject line is for you to 'report' the opening post...do
    that by clicking on the triangle ! on the bottom left of the reply pane..

    Hi johnnybravo,

    I can confirm the Bug, found your posting when googling for the problem I have on my system, a freshly installed SuSE 11.4 x64 box (Core i5-2300, 8GB RAM, 6 disks md-raid5, /boot on md-raid1).

    Seems to be a sandy bridge cpu virtualisation related kernel problem (you have core i7-2xxx, I use core i5-2xxx).

    Did you file a Bug report at the Novell OpenSuSE bugzilla? If so, please post the report-ID to followup.

    Here, not only YaST crashed, I had several kernel panics triggered by rsync and low level file system operations that go away when booting a non-virtualized kernel.
    Seems that currently the combo SuSE11.4+Xen+Sandy Bridge is not a good idea and I want to find out why ;-)

    c'ya,
    raipat

    Hi

    Did you already file the bug??
    I can confirm this bug is happening to me as well.

    the first step in filing a bug is searching to see if it is already
    filed, so why not do that and you have your answer *and* be in the
    perfect to file it yourself, if @raipat decided to not contribute, begin
    here:

    http://en.opensuse.org/Submitting_Bu...ching_for_bugs

    remember, it can't get fixed until it is reported..

    did you report this bug? I just got the same issue with a fresh 11.4 built by suseStudio and XEN
