I installed 2.6.18-53.1.19.315.028 stab053.14 following the wiki documentation
on
Dell Poweredge 2950 server (intel x64 bit) with following result:

Booting 'CentOS(2.6.18-53.1.19.315.028 stab053.14)'

It just hangs or crashes without any good error message.
Any clues or ways to debug this.

Same problems also exists on Centos 5.1 version.

Thanks,
Eero

Hi Eero,

please, check what OpenVZ kernel architectures do you have installed at the moment:
# rpm -qa --queryformat "%{name} %{version} %{release} %{arch}\n" | grep kernel

i believe you have both 32bit and 64bit kernels installed at the moment and then this is the reason.
Please, remove 32bit kernel and reinstall 64bit kernel once more - this should help.

Hope this helps.

If your problem is solved - please, report it!
It's even more important than reporting the problem itself...

That worked, but why yum is installing i686 version also on x86_64 machine? packaging bug?

well, this is not clear yet.
As far as i understand yum by design installs all arches that it sees, so probably this is a problem with repo hierarchy.
We'll check.

Ok, that is fine. I also updated installation instructions (/on wiki), since
using yum on 64bit creates nonworking system.

Newer yum versions fixed this behaviour, for example this is what I see on Fedora 9 x86_64 system:
# yum install ovzkernel
...

Is this ok [y/N]:


I have fixed a note in wiki describing that one needs to specify architecture manually.
