Hi all,

Well, to start with you could export the guest's framebuffer over

you should be able to just use xm console to log in.

I've been trying to get the framebuffer approach to work, with limited
success. I can get the domU's grub window to pop up, but once it starts
to boot Solaris the console turns black and freezes.

is there a way to get solaris running in a full virt domain?

I' ve tried an cdimage-base installation of solaris 10 06/06 and 11/06. After choosing the 1st entry of the grubmenu, a line of dots is shown (kernel load?)
Thats all.

These two appear to be the same problem or similar problems; in any case, assuming they are the same, I'm hitting it. I'm trying to install Solaris 10; I see a grub boot screen, then the line of dots mentioned in the second e-mail appears briefly, then the screen goes black with just a text cursor in the upper left corner of the screen. "xm top" indicates 100% CPU usage. Has anyone hit this problem, and found a workaround for it?

People have suggested installing in qemu and then booting that install in Xen. Has anyone hit this problem, installed with qemu, and then successfully booted the installed OS in Xen?

I've encountered similar problems on other OS'es, also trying to install them as HVM (Darwin, NetBSD, SUSE, I think a few more), where the install CD freezes very early in the boot process. I'm currently running several Windows VM's, though, so I know my setup can do HVM. Any thoughts?
