Package: xen-hypervisor-3.0-i386
Version: 3.0.2+hg9697-1
Severity: important
Tags: patch

Xen 3.0 hypervisor does not boot on my Acer TravelMate 2403 at all
unless IOAPIC is disabled with noapic or acpi=noirq boot parameter.
However, with IOAPIC disabled, some important devices, like network
adapter, do not work (because of interrupt problems, I guess).

The problem is smimiliar to the one I have experienced trying to run
linux kernels prior to 2.6.16 on this machine.

I have corrected the problem by manually applying the changes
found in the respective linux kernel patch available at
The resulting patch is enclosed, it works for me.
