I'm trying to upgrade from 2.0.5 to 2.0.6 and it's not going well. If I boot off of the 2.6.10 KERNEL, everything works OK. If I boot off of the 2.6.11 KERNEL the system hangs after the message "scrubbing free RAM: ..........done."

I used make ARCH=xen oldconfig to migrate my .10 kernel configuration to .11

my grub configuration looks like:

# Which listing to boot as default. 0 is the first, 1 the second etc.
default 2
# How many seconds to wait before the default listing is booted.
timeout 10
# Nice, fat splash-image to spice things up :)
# Comment out if you don't have a graphics card installed

title=Gentoo linux-2.6.10-r1
# Partition where the kernel image (or operating system) is located
root (hd0,0)
kernel /linux-2.6.10-r1 root=/dev/sda3

title Xen 2.0 / XenLinux 2.6.10
  kernel /boot/xen.gz dom0_mem=131072 udev gentoo=nodevfs
  module /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.10-xen0 root=/dev/sda3 ro console=tty0

title Xen 2.0 / XenLinux 2.6.11
  kernel /boot/xen.gz dom0_mem=131072 udev gentoo=nodevfs
  module /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.11-xen0 root=/dev/sda3 ro console=tty0

suggestions?  Ideas?



The result of the duopoly that currently defines "competition" is that
prices and service suck. We're the world's leader in Internet
technology - except that we're not.
