This is my config file with which it fails:
name = "prod1"
uuid = "25c2ae8fad757300339f0a8dd0adcba0"
maxmem = 500
memory = 500
vcpus = 1
builder = "hvm"
kernel = "/usr/lib/xen/boot/hvmloader"
boot = "c"
pae = 1
#acpi = 1
#apic = 1
on_poweroff = "destroy"
on_reboot = "restart"
on_crash = "restart"
device_model = "/usr/lib64/xen/bin/qemu-dm"
sdl = 0
vnc = 1
# vncunused = 0
vncdisplay = "0"
disk = [ "file:/var/lib/xen/images/freebsd72-prod-new.img,hda,w", "phy:/dev/loop0,hdc:cdrom,r", "phy:/dev/loop1,hdd:cdrom,r" ]
serial = "pty"
I wonder if changing the last line would fix this.
Using centos 5 with these versions:
rpm -qa | grep xen
Linux hostname 2.6.18-164.9.1.el5xen #1 SMP Tue Dec 15 TIME TIMEZONE 2009 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
processor : 0
vendor_id : AuthenticAMD
cpu family : 15
model : 67
As far as I have read this cpu should work.
Any ideas on how to fix this issue?
