[Xen-devel] Custom Guest OS not booting

Im trying to get a grip on developing with xen and I'm trying to create my own
guest os. The OS is very simple, it prints out a message and then exits.
Source listing below.
When I try to boot this image with xm create -c hello (hello just points
kernel to ivanos) one of two things happen. 

It prints:
Using config file "hello".
Started domain IvanOS, console on port 9627
************ REMOTE CONSOLE: CTRL-] TO QUIT ********

I press return twice and it prints
************ REMOTE CONSOLE EXITED *****************

it prints:
Using config file "hello".
Started domain IvanOS, console on port 9628
************ REMOTE CONSOLE: CTRL-] TO QUIT ********

************ REMOTE CONSOLE EXITED *****************
(104, 'Connection reset by peer')
Error: Error connecting to xend, is xend running?

xend is running. in both cases xend.log shows

If someone could point out where im going wrong it would be very much
appreciated. Is there any way to get a more detailed trace of what xen is

Best regards
