RE: [Xen-devel] booting on a Compaq Proliant 1600

I am starting Xen with the following GRUB configuration:

title Xen
kernel /xen.gz dom0_mem=131072 ser_baud=115200 ignorebiostables ifname=dummy
module /xenolinux.gz root=/dev/discs/disc0/part6 ro console=tty0

If there is a crash message then it's too quick for me to see, I will try and 
attempt a serial capture of the boot process tonight.

Here's the dmesg output of a UP kernel. I will also load a SMP kernel tonight 
and send you that.

thanks for the speedy response.

Interesting -- I haven't heard of anything like this.

How much memory does the machine have? How much memory are you
starting dom0 with (on the xen command line)? Have you tried
varying this?

Please can you post the dmesg output of an SMP linux kernel
booting on the same machine.

Do you get a crash message out or does it just reboot? Could you
hook up a serial line to the machine (and configure xen with a
serial console) to capture the xen and domain0 boot messages?

It doesn't sound like a driver issue, and Xen should work on
anything newer than a PPro.
