CentOS 5.3 + Xen reboots the Host -> fixed in SVN/3.0.4

I've recently installed CentOS 5.3 and choose to install virtualisation support during their setup. This adds the Xen hypervisor as the default kernel.

If I have VT-x enabled:

  • the guest will hang at boot with a blinking cursor

If I have VT-X disabled:

  • the guest will load the Xen kernel, then reboot. The Xen kernel will load again and then the *host* will reboot.

Guest setup:

  • Vanilla CentOS 5.3 install with Xen enabled.

How to reproduce:

  • Download CentOS 5.3 i386 DVD iso
  • Set up VM, enable PAE, disable VT-x.
  • Boot and install CentOS. Select Virtualisation support during setup.
  • Reboot after install. The only available entry in the boot loader will be the Xen hypervisor.
  • Watch your box reboot

I'd love to attach a log file, but with the host rebooting, they end up empty.
