PostPosted: Mon Feb 27, 2017 9:53 pm    Post subject: Lots of errors with Xen Reply with quote

This is my first time using Gentoo. I'm trying to setup a Gentoo system with uefi, systemd, mirrored btrfs for main system and zfs for xen VMs
So far everything has worked out fine, Im actualy surprised how easy it was after a bit of searching wiki, forums and taking my own notes
to set this up without any errors or problems, Except for one peace of the puzzle Xen. First grub would not generate the menu for it based on both
of these problems at https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/Talk:Xen under "GRUB2" ** then once that was done the file /etc/grub.d/20_linux_xen had to be
manualy edited before I ran grub-mkconfig because otherwise grub wont identify your system as uefi and add the right options, without this your
system will reboot when you try to boot into xen ***. So now it boots but there are a lot of errors including usb errors so I cannot login either.
I then setup sshd so I could get journal errors here they are, If anyone needs more info just let me know. I've set up xen before on differnent
distro so I know it works with my system, also both 4.4.39 and 4.9.6-r1 work fine when not booted into xen.
Any one have Xen 4.7.1, 4.7 etc. running on gentoo-sources kernel-4.4.39, or the new 4.9.6-r1 ?

Also USE flags for app-emulation/xen, efi : Adds efi boot support, requires LDFLAG -melf_x86_64 for amd64
what happens if this is not set? is it still needed? This was not set when it was emerged. Not sure if it's relevant

**Fix: edit /etc/portage/make.conf
Code:
GRUB_PLATFORMS="efi-64 xen"

Note: their might be another way around the uefi/grub problem, add xen.efi directly to your os boot list
with sys-boot/efibootmgr? . . .
http://xenbits.xenproject.org/docs/unstable/misc/efi.html

Compile grub with "efi-64 xen"
Edit /etc/grub/20_linux_xen (line 126) and
add "efi" as a recognized boot platform:
***Fix: https://lists.gt.net/xen/users/433990?page=last
Code:

---- Lines 125 - 30:
echo '$(echo "$xmessage" | grub_quote)'
if [. "\$grub_platform" = "pc" -o "\$grub_platform" = "efi" -o
"\$grub_platform" = "" ]; then
xen_rm_opts=
else
xen_rm_opts="no-real-mode edd=off"
fi
----

Info:
/etc/portage/package.use
Code:

app-emulation/xen efi
app-emulation/xen-tools hvm ovmf pygrub python qemu screen
# required by app-emulation/xen-tools-4.7.1-r4::gentoo[ovmf,python_targets_python2_7]

# required by app-emulation/xen-4.7.1-r4::gentoo[efi]
# required by app-emulation/xen (argument)
>=sys-devel/binutils-2.25.1-r1 multitarget

I do not know what the errors mean or how to fix it, so far the only thing I've tried is to update to
the new 4.9.6-r1 kernel. I get the same errors on 4.9.6-r1 as with 4.4.39

If "Failed to find module" is a different problem all together I can repost for that. Any replies or help is greatly appreciated.

PostPosted: Tue Feb 28, 2017 10:49 pm    Post subject: Works in BIOS mode Reply with quote

So decided :idea: to try to boot in to Xen in bios mode not uefi. I updated grub to support i386-pc
made a bios bootable usb with grub2 on it. This works, it works on both kernels 4.4.39 and 4.9.6-r1 and
it works with X2APIC enabled in bios. Before it would not boot in UEFI with X2APIC enabled in the bios at all
it would stop at "x2APIC: already enabled in BIOS, but iommu_supports_eim failed". And if boot into xen
with uefi with X2APIC disabled it would boot but I would get the trace call, ata and xhci erros and couldn't
login due to no usb keyboard support.

The errors about modules failing to load are still unresolved. I'll repost for that
And ill repost now that I know more about my problem.

Does anyone have Xen on gentoo working with UEFI with any kernel ? Does gentoo support this at all ?
The wiki doesnt say its not supported. Right now the only way to get it to work is it format everything and
start over cause right now I have a UEFI+GPT setup and you need to make a grub_bios boot partition to do
bios boot on this setup. And even then still need UEFI as a requirement for this setup.
