Hi, I'm trying to install a CentOS 5.2 guest with virt-manager/qemu on a
CentOS 5.2 system (X86_x64, 3ware 9650SE, 2 x Intel VT capable xeon
cpus, 8 GB)
Unfortunately I'm getting a crash in the guest install process. (see
crash text below). Other systems are installing smoothely, even Windows
xp, but the above combination won't install  (5.2/5.2). What works well:
CentOS 5.2 xen unmodified (i.e. fully virtual) guest, but no luck with
qemu/kvm. Here's what I already tried, all without success:
* kernel-xen kernel from centosplus
* this kernel: http://people.centos.org/hughesjr/kernel/5/bz443853/x86_64/
* installed a minimal 5.1
* updated the 5.1 with Johnny's kernel
* updated the 5.1 with yum update
Have you got any idea on how I can get this installed?
TIA
Regards
Michael

PS: Here's the crash, I hope I typed everything right.  ;-)  (I didn't
want to bother you with a gif). I couldn't get further up in order to
grab more from the screen. Shift -PgUp doesn't work.
