Re: [libvirt-users] host freeze when starting VM



It seems a kernel bug as your description. And I found some kvm problems fixed in 4.4.4:
* Tue Nov 10 2015 Laura Abbott <labbott redhat com> - 4.4.0-0.rc0.git6.1 - Linux v4.3-9393-gbd4f203 * Tue Nov 10 2015 Josh Boyer <jwboyer fedoraproject org> - Fix Yoga 900 rfkill switch issues (rhbz 1275490) - Fix incorrect size calculations in megaraid with 64K pages (rhbz 1269300) - CVE-2015-8104 kvm: DoS infinite loop in microcode DB exception (rhbz 1278496 1279691) - CVE-2015-5307 kvm: DoS infinite loop in microcode AC exception (rhbz 1277172 1279688)

Hi Han,

thanks for your reply. I'm using KVM as hypervisor. The versions are:
Kernel: 4.5.2
Libvirt: 1.3.4-1

But its quite embarrasing... when I was answering your mail I was having a
look if there is a new kernel I can build, since I have to rely on some
patches. I upgraded from 4.4.3 to 4.5.2 and now libvirt doesn´t have any
problem.

So thanks for the heads up!

Regards
Alex
