RE: [Xen-users] Xen 3.0 and Hyperthreading an issue?
Done. Filed bug #432. Here is the information I entered into it for reference.
Using pull from hg as of this morning (12/5/2005).
If I enable hyperthreading on my machine then Xen gets into trouble within
minutes of starting up user domains. With hyperthreading disabled it ran for
several hours with no problem.
Machine is a Dell Optplex GX280 with 2G of memory.
I get the following on the screen when it hangs:
Kernel panic - not synching: BUG!

There certainly shouldn't be an issue with HT. If you leave it in text
mode do you see an oops message?
Please can you file this on bugzilla, including details about your

bugzilla should be back up -- we decided to move it onto another hosting
site in preparation for some heavy traffic on the downloads servers.
