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. Other
systems are installing smoothely, even Windows xp, but the above
combination won't install. What works, too: CentOS 5.2 xen unmodified
(i.e. fully virtual) guest, but no luck with qemu.
I already tried the kernel-xen kernel from centosplus.
Have you got any idea?

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.
