Cannot boot to native fedora-37-minimal kernel

I am struggling to boot to native kernel in fedora-37-minimal and I have no previous experience in doing this on any distro template. The goal is related to this.

I have followed this, this and this, regardless of inaccuracy in the latter regarding package names related to fedora, and I’ve installed kernel, -devel and -headers packages.

$ rpm -qa kernel
kernel-6.0.15-300.fc37.x86_64

I have tried this:

  1. PVH virt_mode with grub2-xen-pvh kernel pref.
  2. PV virt_mode with grub2-xen
  3. HVM virt_mode with “provided by qube”

In all cases I’m getting “cannot connect to qrexec agent for 240 seconds…” error.

Here’s the error log for all three cases, from /var/lib/xen/console/fedora-37-minimal.log

The only thing that looks illogical is

Installed Packages
grub2-xen-pvh.x86_64                     2.04-1.fc32                     @System

yet, in /var/lib/qubes/vm-kernels/pvgrub2-pvh/ I see grub-i386-xen_pvh.bin

Does anyone have an idea, or anyone having experience with booting fedora into native kernel?

For the reference, I succeeded to install and boot into debian-11-minimal native kernel following the same docs and steps I used to with fedora, so what am I doing wrong with fedora?

Maybe try it with a non-minimal Fedora 37 too for good measure. And if it still doesn’t work, that seems suitable for a bug report?

And… it boots into native kernel on fedora-37.

Thanks for the tip. Now to trace what’s wrong with minimal…

I have cloned another “clean” fedora-minimal template (the one from the OP was cloned from -minimal too, but heavily customized before trying to boot into native kernel), and tried to boot into native kernel.
No luck.

I will try to download clean fedora-37-minimal and to try to boot to native kernel…

With a stock fedora-37-minimal I was able to boot native kernel, too.
So I went back to my previous minimal template and wanted to be sure that vmlinuz files aren’t missing in the /boot, that all other needed packages are there and did this:


$ sudo dnf reinstall kernel*
$ sudo dnf install grub2 qubes-kernel-vm-support
$ sudo  grub2-install /dev/xvda
$ sudo grub2-mkconfig -o /boot/grub2/grub.cfg

Then, in dom0 I set kernel to pvgrub2-pvh and virt_mode PVH for the minimal template, and miraculously, this time I was able to boot to my customized minimal template’s native kernel.

Thanks for the tips. I will mark this post as a solution so it could serve better to the users having similar problems.
