Re: [Xen-devel] (no subject)

Then I think your Dom0 (i.e. kernel 3.x.x) has some problems with xsave/xrstor.

Hi everyone,

I was trying to build a new machine but the system keeps rebooting.
I used the lasted unstable version from xen-unstable.hg.

I have tried with Fedora 16 (kernel 3.3.0-8) and Xubuntu 11.10 

The output to my serial console is attached.

What is your Linux command line? does it include "console=hvc0"?
Perhaps some early_printk settings are required.

Please include my email in your replies, thank you.

Yes, it includes hvc0. I used your tutorial to setup the SOL.

title        Xen 3.4.2 / pv_ops Linux dom0 with a serial console
root         (hd0,0)
kernel       /xen-3.4.gz dom0_mem=512M loglvl=all guest_loglvl=all sync_console 
console_to_ring com1=115200,8n1,0xe000,0 console=com1
module       /vmlinuz- ro root=/dev/vg00/lv01 console=hvc0 
earlyprintk=xen nomodeset
module       /initrd-

Something like this, I am not at the machine anymore.


It looks like xsave/xrstore instructions (xsetbv instruction in
xstate_enable() function to be exact) related. You can try to disable
xsave to to see if this helps.


Sorry about the untitled message.

Should I be the one disabling xsave or is that for Andrew to change something?
How can I do that?
Xen-unstable supports xsave/xrstor. You are using kernel 3.x.x, which
should support xsave/xrstor too. You can try to set xsave=0 in xen.gz
line of grub entry and boot again. Something like this:

kernel /boot/xen.gz blah blah xsave=0
module blah blah

Oh, i see, it's some new functionality. I will try it tomorrow and then let you 
know how it goes.

Thank you for the help.



Anyway, shouldn't Xen support it?

The xsave=0 command line parameter solves the problem.

Thank you,
