Hi,

I tried to modify and compile some of Xen 4.7's code
(cloned from git clone git://xenbits.xen.org/xen.git)
and even with a very minor change (patch included at last)
my xen failed to boot. It stucks at black blank screen after
showing some xen logs.

By adding "vga=text-80x80,keep" to the grub before booting
xen., infinite loop of text
"(XEN) traps.c:3290: GPF (0000): ffff82d0801af4d5 -> ffff82d080240e5a"
appears.

I tried to compile and boot xen reverting the change, but
same issue still exists.

Also I tried to setup serial console but my output is garbled.
More info on it here,
http://lists.xenproject.org/archives/html/xen-devel/2015-12/msg02045.html

I tried different software (cu, gtkterm), different baud rates,
different serial-USB cable and stopping modemmanager,
but no luck.

I am using i3-6100 processor, if that info is needed.I will
appreciate any help.

Regards,

What is on your Linux command line? Do you have 'console=hvc0' ?

How did you set the baudrate? I usually do 'screen /dev/ttyUSB0 115200 cs8'
?

dmesg | grep tty

and lspci

could also help?

I also tried the same with screen just without the cs8 keyword.

This is on your box with the USB dongle. I meant the other one.

Maybe we should step back a bit. On the machine on which you
want to install Xen - does it work if you install say
Fedora Core 23 and after installing, you do 'yum install xen' ?
Can you boot with that? Then at least we will know whether an
packaged version of Xen works on your machine.

Yes, it works. I tried that with xen 4.5 on Ubuntu 15.10.
Also, even my compiled version(4.7) used to run before
my modification.

OK, so I would suggest you try again with the serial console but
using the non-modified hypervisor version. See if you can get the serial to work.

I would suggest you use screen as the other (cu, minicons) - I had issues
with them with USB devices. While screen also allows you to log them.

And do please check that you have 'console=com1 com1=115200,8n1 loglvl=all' on
your Xen command line. And on Linux 'console=hvc0'.

Once you have the serial working with the un-modified version I would
try the modified and see where it gets stuck.

Tried that. Still same issue. Maybe hardware is malfunctioning.

Tried cu and gtkterm

Checked. All set.

I will get getting new cables. See if new ones solve the issue.

Thanks for the help.
