This page contains problems that may be encountered when using Xen, and their solutions.

If you encounter problems you don't see solutions for on this page, navigate to the Xilinx Developer Forums for additional help.

Kernel call traces

When running Linux on top of Dom0, Linux can go in kernel panic due to insufficient memory for dom0. Example:

[   12.747244]  dump_backtrace+0x0/0x190
[   12.747750]  show_stack+0x18/0x30
[   12.748176]  dump_stack+0xd4/0x110
[   12.748530]  dump_header+0x48/0x1e8
[   12.748902]  out_of_memory+0x2c4/0x310
[   12.749289]  __alloc_pages_nodemask+0x72c/0xc64


Increase the dom0 allocated memory. Check xen_boot_tftp.source or xen_boot_sd.source relevant file and see “dom0_mem=1G”, increase this memory appropriately to > 1G. Save the file and recreate the xen_boot_tftp.scr using below command:

mkimage -A arm64 -T script -C none -a 0xC00000 -e 0xC00000 -d xen_boot_tftp.source xen_boot_tftp.scr

Reboot the machine with latest scripts.

Xen ethernet passthrough failures

When creating a new DomU using example-passnet.cfg file. If DomU create fails like below example:

xl create -c xl create -c /etc/xen/example-passnet.cfg
Parsing config from /etc/xen/example-passnet.cfg
(XEN) memory_map:fail: dom1 gfn=ff0e0 mfn=ff0e0 nr=1 ret:-38


Update the xen.dts file as per instruction from Starting Linux guests with Pass-through networking page and re-boot the machine(dom0) and then create DomUs.
