Bug#582044: hw-detect: same issue with squeeze xen domU running on lenny xen dom0
Version: testing on 03 July 2010
Followup-For: Bug #582044
I have the same issue when trying to install squeeze/testing/03-July-2010
in a Xen HVM domU running on a stable/lenny Xen dom0. I read a few reports of
seeing this problem on low memory systems but doubled the VM's RAM from
128MB to 256MB with no effect.
The disk is detected, so I'm a bit puzzled. ALT-F4 shows:
13:26:47 kernel: ide0 at 0x1f0-0x1f7,0x3f6 on irq 14
13:26:47 kernel: ide1 at 0x170-0x177,0x376 on irq 15

13:32:45 hw-detect: insmod /lib/modules/2.6.30-2-486/kernel/drivers/ide/ide-generic.ko
13:32:45 kernel: ide_generic: please use "probe_mask=0x3f" module parameter for probing all legact ISA IDE ports
13:32:47 kernel: check-missing-firmware: no missing firmware in /dev/.udev/firmware-missing
Shortly after that ALT-F1 goes blue for a bit and then appears:
No disk drive was detected. If you know the name of the driver
needed by your disk drive, you can select it from the list.
I assume that this is a hw-detect issue, because the 'kernel:' lines
above indicate that the kernel has no problem detecting the hardware
and sfdisk has no problem partitioning. (fdisk currently has a library
problem, so that's why i tested with sfdisk, which is also available
from the shells on ALT-F2/F3).
I can easily repeat my test if something new arrives in testing, I
could also drop a new deb/udeb/whatever into my testing mirror and
try installing from that if that would help.
