nucleo do you have more details than that? Can you open a bugzilla. there hasn't been one mentioned through the entire rawhide devel cycle for 4.17, or from the test day. Either you are the first person to try running dom0 (possible), or there might be something unrelated to dom0 going on. Would be good to investigate either way.

looks very similar to bug 1544963

No regressions on T450s, XS35GTv2 and a VM.

LXDE on vbox does not work at all with this kernel. I cannot drag window after clicking window titile bar, and sees some other issue. I will check if such issue happens even on "real" (i.e. no vbox) machine.

It seems to have fixed #1547277, at least for now.

Ah, works well with "real" machine HP spectre - perhaps vbox is not compatible yet.

works for me

No regressions noted on x86_64 Haswell. (After I figured out that it was https://bodhi.fedoraproject.org/updates/FEDORA-2018-ac82afe970 that broke suspension functionality for me.)

Reboots immediately on a QEMU/KVM VPS on https://www.hukot.net/en/, as far as I know they use https://www.proxmox.com/en/. Kernel 4.16.16-300.fc28.x86_64 is fine there.

On my personal KVM environment (Fedora 28 latest based) everything is fine (with kernel 4.16.16-200.fc27.x86_64 on the host)

I am getting the same or very similar behaviour like this bug


(4.16.4-200.fc27.x86_64 takes minutes to finish crng init on some systems)

Addendum to my comment above:


kernel after 4.17.0-0.rc2.git0.1.fc29 waits for random entropy on boot

Known problem, still rubber-stamping new kernels...

I second georgm's comment - Same situation on a dell xps 9570 with GeForce GTX 1050.

System goes into suspend, but does not resume properly. Same bug 1594675.
