View Full Version : Xen Kernel Freezing on Boot

27th December 2006, 04:43 PM
At some point, the yum system installed the Xen kernel on my Fedora 6 installation (which in general is not a bad thing), and set it as the default boot kernel.

However, when Fedora Boots, it shows it's standard textual boot screen, but when it tries to activate the X server (at the point where the graphical portion of the boot screen kicks in), it just hangs. If I boot with the same release of the non-xen kernel, I boot perfectly fine.

I thought it might have to do with my video drivers, so I installed the latest version of the ATI FireGL drivers (I am using an integrated Radeon Xpress 200), but still have no better luck. I HAVE NOT installed VmWare in any form on this machine.

I'd love to be able to run Xen, but right now I can't even boot the kernel with it.

Has anyone had similar problems, or know what could be causing this?

Wow.. This same issue is happening with me
Its not the Xen Kernel, its the normal kernel.
I woke up this morning, turned on my pc and I noticed it booted really slowy. When the X Server was starting it took a while so I restarted and the same thing happened.
I dont know whats wrong
