Sorry for the last empty mail (hit the wrong button). Attached is a patch against xen-unstable to improve the error messages in pygrub when the e2fsprogs do not support the newer ext2fs_open2 function. This should help beginners to identify the real problem when pygrub does not work (e.g. on RHEL4).

I also have that problem on fedora core 5. As far as I can see, your fix is only about the error message. But how can the actual problem be solved? I'd really like to use a simple xen config as given in xmexample1, and use the images from xen-get.org.

My post to fedora-xen can be found at: https://www.redhat.com/archives/fedora-xen/2006-April/msg00085.html

I also haven't managed to boot a domU different from FC5 on my FC5 dom0.
But I have different problems. Maybe there are some points of interest for you in this anyway...

You report that when trying to boot xend complains about not finding the kernel image file.
I disabled selinux in domU and dom0 and then that went away...

I also have no trouble at all working the normal way of booting with a kernel in dom0 and not using pygrub (which you obviously need if you want to domU to boot a kernel which is placed in domU itself).

My domUs (debian 3.1, fedora 4 - all happily managing to run on different dom0) boot up to different points. Usually they get stuck around mounting the ext3 filesystem... So I'm still working on that...

So I'd be happy if we could mutually keep track of our efforts and hopefully successes!
