Hi folks, I'm having a slight problem creating a DomU when using Xen
3.1.0 compiled from source.  I've used the same steps in the past with
a slightly different configuration, and the problem has not occured.

I create a DomU (using the xenified install kernel from the Fedora
distribution) and install Fedora 7 via HTTP.  The Anaconda installer
runs in plain-text mode: no graphics, and furthermore the text-based
windows are the fancy colored kind.  The install completes and then I
launch the DomU again, this time using a 2.6.18 kernel I built in the
Xen tree.  When running throught the run-once configuration (setting
up firewall, SELinux, etc), it used text-based windows rather than
graphics, but instead of the simple black-and-white text-based windows
 it tries to use the fancy colored ones.  These come out somewhat
corrupted, though I can still use them.  Also, whenever I boot up this
domain, the status messages from the Linux boot tries to show the
"OK"s as green but instead I get non-English characters around the

Any idea what's causing this and how to fix it?  I'm mostly just
curious.   Below is my xm configuration file.


name = "Fedora7_PV_1"
memory = "500"
disk = [ 'phy:/dev/VolGroup00/LogVolGuest1,xvdb,w' ]
vif = [ 'mac=00:16:3e:04:98:85, bridge=xenbr1', ]
uuid = "85b1434d-de07-6f52-f6a4-828780d34b76"
kernel = "/boot/vmlinuz-2.6.18-xen"
ramdisk = "/boot/initrd-2.6.18-xen.img"
root = "/dev/xvdb3"
on_reboot   = 'restart'
on_crash    = 'restart'
extra = 'console=xvc0'
