kudzu segmentation error with xen.



As Larry tb indicated, in some other repository he (and I) found a version of the kernel 
kernel-xen-hypervisor-2.6.15-1.2009.4.2_FC5
That has not been part of the "official Core5 test3" download.
I do not know the status of this other kernel, with regards to core5 test3,
as no kernel update has ever been distributed since the onset of test3 commencement.

On a positive note, I downloaded and tested the latter version and noted two fixes
vis a vis the
kernel-xen-hypervisor-2.6.15-1.1955_FC5
1) kudzu does not lock up or generate a segfault error and
2) Power-off works (The system actually does a power off)

If the latter is not part of what will be unleashed on Monday, the 20th, then my bug is unresolved and is still open.

In closing, It has been a furious set of activities to get Core5 test3 to the healthy status it currently is at.
I must congratulate
Rahul Sundaram for a job well done.

Many of you do not know that he is often at the keyboard and not in bed at 3am in the morning, so that we can meet the deadline. Further,
he had to deal with my ignorance or more specifically my lack of indepth knowledge of how to debug problems. Further, he has never been negative en any correspondence.

Well, i m not sure the way i told is the good one ....
Sure thing : i have the both hypervisor kernel installed :
[root ws044 ~]# rpm -qa | grep kernel
kernel-xen-hypervisor-2.6.15-1.1955_FC5
kernel-xen-hypervisor-2.6.15-1.2009.4.2_FC5
kernel-2.6.15-1.2041_FC5
kernel-2.6.15-1.2038_FC5
kernel-devel-2.6.15-1.2041_FC5
[root ws044 ~]#

Maybe you could try
yum install kernel-xen-hypervisor-2.6.15-1.2009.4.2_FC5 ?????????

Hmm :( I have just tried to install hypervisor on another machine i
have, and cant fi! nd any kernel-xen-hypervisor anywhere .

What the hell is it ?
