RE: [Xen-devel] can't start domains

make uninstall does this:
        cp -a /etc/xen /etc/xen.old && rm -rf /etc/xen
        rm -rf "/usr/lib/python2.2/site-packages/xen* /usr/lib/libxc* /usr/lib/python2.2/site-packages/Xc*"
which might make more sense if i wasn't using python 2.3. also, there's something funny going on with /usr/lib/libxc, I get:
I think the first two should be symlinks to the third?
but that's irrelevant to my situation. you'll see in the output below, the error occurs in /usr/lib/python2.3/site-packages/xen/xend/server/blkif.py:228. At this point, backend.handle = 0. is that right?
i'll recompile with the debug flag set shortly and send the output in the morning (AEST)
here's the output:

If I understand correctly, you're saying it breaks in the same
way (with a similar python traceback) even if you have the
simplest possible setup of a single VBD exporting a physical

This means we can ignore the LVM issue.

Can you post the traceback for this simple case, and also the
debug output from dom0 having enabled the debug prints in blkback/common.h

I think we'd have noticed this if it were a general problem ;-)

Are you fully up to date with your repo? There have been a few
duff ones in the last couple of weeks, but things seem stable
now.  We came very close to putting a "Xen 2.0-rc1" designation on
the tree Friday afternoon, but thought we leave a few tests
running over the weekend.

I just noticed that 2.4.27 and 2.6.8 have just come out, so I
guess we should upgrade before declaring the 2.0 release
candidate. Oh well...

> One mistake I made earlier was having some old 1.2 files lying around from when I tested this server a while ago. I think I have cleaned them up, but apart from the possibility of 2.6 causing a problem, that's my most likely cause. Where should I look for stale files?

'make uninstall' is fairly brutal but should clear things out.
