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

it's polled rather than event driven (eg you have to go look at it), but this is a useful link for seeing what's new:
have a look at the followups to this message, try specifying the major/minor in hex form, or make sure the node exists in /dev. That was my problem in the end.

I'm seeing the same problems with /dev/loop0 exported as
a VBD.

I'll upgrade the Xen utilities and xend tomorrow.  Hope
I didn't spend a few days trying to debug something that
was fixed while I wasn't looking ;)

It would be cool if there was a mailing list where commits
to the Xen BK repository were mailed out, to make it easier
for people to monitor what goes into the repository...
