Re: [Xen-devel] question about PXE

> Failed to obtain physical IRQ 4

Physical IRQ 4 is normally used by serial UARTs.

Have you enabled support for e.g. the 16550 uart in your dom0
kernel config, but have also told xen to use com1 ?  It's
generally best to let xen have com1, then the virtual xencons
driver will enable Linux to share the serial line with xen. This
what happens with the default.

Odd. Add 'bash -x' at the top of the /etc/xen/scripts/network
and then you should be able to see what the script is doing.

It creates a bridge and then attempts to transfer the original
network setup over to the bridge. Positing the output of
"ip link show" and "ip route show" before and after should help
figure out what's going wrong.

Odd. Are you sure you installed the modules that were built for
this kernel version?

Out of interest, what do you want to use tun for? Hosting other
UML instances from withing xen guest instances? I guess this
should work, though I've never tried it.
