kernel-xen booting hangs


Hello,

I'm having some problems with booting Xen kernel on Fedora 9 (regardless of the kernel version, the problem appeared with both Xen kernels I had had installed - I've tried reinstalling them, and after that I have only one installed). Anyway, we're talking about the latest Fedora 9 Xen kernel. Now, the error messages I get while booting are as follows:

[XEN]Scrubbing Free RAM: Done
[XEN]Xen trace buffers: disabled
[XEN]Std. Loglevel: errors and warnings
[XEN]Guest Loglevel: Nothing (Rate-limited: errors and warnings)
[XEN]Xen is relinquishing VGA console.

Last five messages while booting. There, the system freezes... the only remedy from there on is physical reboot (restart button).

The hardware I'm trying to boot the kernel on is:
AMD Barton 2500+
Asus A7N8-X
2 x 512 DDR RAM (one Kingston, one Corsair I think)
120 PATA GB Maxtor HDD
...

Booting Xen kernel and virtualization itself worked on Fedora 8 on this configuration. Now, I'm not sure if I've even tried booting Xen kernel on Fedora 9 before (i.e. since installing F9... not sure if it ever worked).

Ask me if you need any more info you consider relevant.

I read that xen was not included in fedora 9 so the xen you have may be left over from fedora 8 and not compatable?

Well it's included in Fedora 9 Livna repository and in optional packages when installing Fedora 9. Anyway, it can't be a leftover of Fedora 8 since I've repartitioned the HDD and freshly installed Fedora 9 on it (i.e. not an upgrade).

Guess You were right about kernel-xen not comming along with Fedora 9 install. But why is it available for instalation from repository when it doesn't work? I've tried installing it to another machine Dell Optiplex 745 and the same thing happens...

I went back to Centos 5.1 for a stable xen.
I plan to install FC9 under that for testing.
I also read that virtualization will be included in FC10.
