Re: [Xen-users] Boot into dom0 "Failed to parse block device name"

I have always built with mkinitrd or mkinitramfs. Did you try using
those directly?

Also did you check /lib/modules/<the xen linux kernel> for the
module(s) that it
might be missing and/or complaining about?

I tried mkinitrd:

shell> depmod -a 2.6.18-xen
shell> mkinitrd --show kernel_version=2.6.18-xen (config file below)

 - the generated image is about 2.9M
 - in the output of mkinitrd I saw that sd_mod and aacraid are included

I get further but still won't boot.  The errors this time are:
