Re: [Xen-users] VNC to HVM not starting

Does "/usr/lib64/xen/boot/hvmloader" actually exist?  
On my 64-bit gentoo machine, the hvmloader is under

Also, I believe you need the device model uncommented.  Here is my
config for a working ubuntu HVM on gentoo.  Xen 3.1 was released into
portage a few weeks back (it may be masked, but it works fine) and I'm
running that.

***Note, that this is already installed and I've detached the cdrom,
your config options for the cdrom and boot device look correct if you
are still trying to install.
