Re: [Xen-devel] Xen 4.0.4, kernel 3.5.0 HVM crash and kernel BUG


Yes, of course. I disabled these options:

Processor type and features:
[*] Numa Memory Allocation and Scheduler Support
[*] ACPI NUMA detection

Power management and ACPI options  --->
ACPI (Advanced Configuration and Power Interface) Support
-*-   NUMA support

Any Ideas howto debug the VNC problem any further?

Valtteri: Can you actually paste the names of the .config options you disabled
and got the dom0 kernel working without crashes?

Maybe Konrad can comment if the current upstream dom0 kernel is supposed to work
with NUMA support enabled / compiled in?
