There is an bug in the 3Ware driver for the Kernel 2.6.18.
You can patch it out, but it brings some other problems.
Xen + 3Ware 96xx and newer are a problem with xen,
we have a few xen machines with this problem, so we
use the 2.6.20 Ubutu kernel. A better choice for xen are
the Adaptec controllers 3xxx and 5xxx.

patching the kernel and some more tryes gives no positive result,

Ok - you are referring to the 3Ware 9xxx driver for 2.6.18? (Downloaded from 3ware.com separately) I did try that, but it resulted in a kernel crash during the boot sequence.

so we user the 2.6.20-server XEN kernel from ubuto for Debian Etch (but 32-bit),
with 64 it could work too....

Interesting, is that the unstable version of Xen? I was under the impressions that the latest Xen-based kernel was 2.6.18, or is there somewhere I can fetch a stable release of Xen based on 2.6.20?

Thanks in advance.
