Re: [Fedora-xen] f7 guest on f8t3

This is my command line, it's similar to one that worked for Debian etch and ClarkConnect 4.2 (and Windows XP):

virt-install --name=Fedora7 --ram=384 --vcpus=2 --file=/var/lib/xen/images/Fedora7.img --file-size=4 --vnc --hvm --cdrom=/net/ns/var/local/mirrors/linux/Fedora/7/Fedora/x86_64/iso/F-7-x86_64-DVD.iso --os-type=linux os-variant=fedora7

Windows is fine
Debian's fine
ClarkConnect's fine

f7 took ages loading ata_piix4 (actually it was a little further than this, that's just want was on the install screen). Ages > half an hour after which I went off to lunch.

I cam back and, to my pleasant surprise, it was at the "choose your language" screen.

F7 for IA32 isn't going this well;-(

I's been up over 17 hours.

There's a screen shot at http://58.6.192.22/ia32f1.png
It's not yet switching to other consoles, I have no more info,

Here's the output from "xm top"

It doesn't seem to me to be using much disk I/O or CPU.
