           Summary: suse/xen kernel boots but is extremely slow
           Product: Xen
           Version: 2.0
          Platform: x86
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: Unspecified
        AssignedTo: xen-bugs@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
        ReportedBy: jsweatte@xxxxxxxxx

I have done a network install of SuSE 10 to a HP ze1110 laptop(500 mb ram, 1 ghz
AMD Duron) . SuSE 10 boots fine and thus far runs with no problems. I have not
experienced any issues with the non-Xen kernel to date. I should mention I have
never done anything with Xen, this is my first attempt. The Suse/Xen kernel was
created, as I mentioned, during the network install. I patched the system
immediately after installation using yast. When I boot the Suse/Xen kernel it
takes a very, very long time but it does successfully boot. Once the system is
up  it is so slow as to be unuseable. I tried to start top but just packed it in
after   , I don't know, at least 10 minutes. The system is I guess technically
ok but it's super slow. I tried to go to yast as I see a Xen tool in the non-Xen
system yast but the system is so slow it just never responds. No crash or
message or anything visible, just hangs. As I have no experience with Xen I am
not sure what to do now. 
This is what shows as being installed
The suse non Xen kernel is  2.6.13-15-default.
