My home serveur :
CPU : Core 2 duo e6420
Ram : 8 Go PC6400
MB: gigabyte GA-GM33-DS2R
Actually, The serveur run on debian LENNY 64 bits ( kernel 2.6.26-2, with xen 3.2-1)
The guests machine are debian LENNY 64bits, image d/l from Stacklet | Create Virtual Images On The Fly
everything works fine.
I was waiting for opensuse 11.2 to migrate the guests, in order to have the support for xenpm ( cpufreq and cpuidle ), that comes with the new kernel and the new version of xen.
Even if i disable cpufreq and cpuidle at boot in the xen command line, after a few minutes, the system freeze, with the 3 led of the numeric pad blinking!!!
There is nothing in the log, telling me the reason… ( kernel ?? xen ?? ).
I think the problem can be reproduce easily.
By the way, i tried to create virtual machine directly with virt-Manager ( in yast ), and no succes.
To watch kernel crash Xen system has to be setup with serial console.View: XenParavirtOps - Xen Wiki
title Xen dom0-test (184.108.40.206) with serial console
kernel /xen-3.4.gz dom0_mem=1024M loglvl=all guest_loglvl=all com1=9200,8n1 console=com1
module /vmlinuz-220.127.116.11 ro root=/dev/vg00/lv01 console=hvc0 earlyprintk=xen
root=/dev/…/ for xenified kernel on OpenSuse 11.2 will be a bit different, like for your normal grub entry. Been connected via NULL modem cable to another Linux box Xen Instance will sent bootup messages to /dev/ttyS0 on the second box and provide you login prompt on the first one ( if Dom0 loaded ok). In case of system crash, kernel stack trace may captured in same file :-
cat /dev/ttyS0 | tee log
In meantime i have same keyboard behaviour during crashes xenified kernel on OpenSuse 11.2 RC2(2.6.35-01).
