I tried to install elastix 0.8.5 on Cent OS 5 using the Virtualization installed with Cent OS 5 (which I think is 3.0.3).

When it gets to within about 4 packages of installing elastix in a new VM, it crashes with these errors:

Here are some log messages:

[2007-09-11 14:24:00 xend 2810] INFO (XendDomain:370) Domain EstesHome (2) unpaused.
[2007-09-11 14:51:02 xend.XendDomainInfo 2810] WARNING (XendDomainInfo:882) Domain has crashed: name=EstesHome id=2.
[2007-09-11 14:51:02 xend.XendDomainInfo 2810] DEBUG (XendDomainInfo:1463) XendDomainInfo.destroy: domid=2
[2007-09-11 14:51:02 xend.XendDomainInfo 2810] DEBUG (XendDomainInfo:1471) XendDomainInfo.destroyDomain(2)

Does anyone have any ideas for me? This machine is a Cent OS with all current updates, Virtualization installed, P4 with 1GB RAM, etc. The settings for the VM I tried were 384K of RAM, 500 Meg of RAM, etc and still got the crash using these defaults and the ks_xen.cfg kickstart file using the elastix 0.8.5 ISO image.

Thanks!

OK I did more work on this. 0.8.5 does not install under Xen on Cent OS 5.

However, 0.8.4 does, so this appears to be a bug with 0.8.5.

I too am having the same problem, and 0.8.4 did install for me as well, wierd. Unfortunately, 0.8.4 doesn't include the features I liked about 0.8.5...

Did you try to install 0.8.4 and then update to 0.8.5?
I did update on a normal CD installation but I had to fix the a few upgrade bugs like the FreePBX not working and administrator menu not showing, etc but there are several fixes for that on other forums.
When I tried to install xen vm in two diferen computer it reported that it did not enough espace on / dir.<br><br>Post edited by: webbler, at: 2007/10/21 18:32

I got the new Elastix Distro 0.9-beta2 working as domU after a new reinstallation of zaptel, I commented out the '#define USE_RTC' in ztdummy.c.
Loading ztdummy does not result the kernel panic anymore. But it still failes with a message about wrong kernel timing. Loading ztdummy requires a 1000 Hz kernel but the 2.6 kernel was set back to 250. The only problem that I found is with music-on-hold. The music seems to be playing at a much slower speed. I guess that this has something to do with the RTC/timers on DomU. will we have XEN support in the new relase and a kernel compiled with 1KHz?

We are trying to fix the timer issue with ztxen. I'll keep you posted if it works.
