Re: [Xen-users] Paravirtualized on FC5/6 or CentOS4/5 with 64bit hypervisor?

Hash: SHA1

Have you tried using a kernel compiled with Xen 3.1 with these FC5/6 and
Centos 4/5 guests?  In my experience you need to do this to run 32 bit
PV on a 64 bit hypervisor.

I've not tried installing FreeBSD, but if its a HVM, I don't see why it
should fail.  Are you creating it with virt-manager?  Does it give you
any errors?  What about the log files?  And where in the install did it
stop working?

As for the Debian install, I'm guessing your putting a web address or
NFS share into the install media URL box.  If this is the case, I'm not
sure that virt-manager recognises Debian directory structures.  Have you
tried installing it as a HVM (or with Qemu) and converting it to PV?

Hope this helps,
