I can reproduce it every time like this:

- boot into pv_ops dom0 kernel
- run "make bzImage && make modules"
- wait for the kernel compilation to finish..
- *crash*, before the compilation finishes, usually within 15-30mins

My host has 2GB of RAM.

Hypervisor is 32bit PAE, Fedora 11 Xen 3.3.1-11 rpms.
My dom0 kernel is 32bit PAE aswell.


kernel /xen-3.3.gz dom0_mem=1024M
module /vmlinuz-2.6.30-rc3-tip root=/dev/sda1 ro
module /boot/initrd.img-2.6.30-rc3-tip

I'm (was) using xen-tip/next.
