[Xen-users] not able to get to a login prompt for domU

I am not able to login on my domU using /dev/hda2 from my hardrive

xm create -c myvmconf vmid=1

/etc/xen/myvmconf looks like this :

def vmid_check(var, val):

val = int(val)

if val <= 0:

raise ValueError

return val


use="Virtual machine id. Integer greater than 0.",



kernel = "/boot/vmlinuz-2.6.11-1.1369_FC4xenU"


memory = 64

name = "VM%d" % vmid

cpu = -1 # leave to Xen to pick

#cpu = vmid # set based on vmid (mod number of CPUs)

vcpus = 1

#vcpus = 4 # make your domain a 4-way


#vif = [ 'mac=aa:00:00:00:00:11, bridge=xen-br0' ]

disk = [ 'phy:hda%d,hda2,r' %(1+vmid)]


root = "/dev/hda2 ro"



xm create -c myvmconf vmid=1


Using config file "/etc/xen/myvmconf".

Started domain VM1, console on port 9601
