[Xen-users] Solaris domU dies at boot

Hi, List.

I've been trying for weeks to get a Solaris domU running on my Linux
dom0.  I've tried example configs from numerous sources; current effort
is pasted below.  (Largely cribbed from

Currently I'm using Xen 3.2.1 on Linux (Gentoo), kernel version 2.6.21.

The domU is trying to boot an ISO of the 2008/05 release of OpenSolaris.
I've copied i86xpv/kernel/amd64 kernel and /boot/x86.microroot from the
OpenSolaris ISO into the locations listed in my config file, and the
"extra" line is copied verbatim from the source linked above.

When I try to boot with this configuration, 'xm create' starts the
domain, but it immediately crashes.  I don't get any qemu-dm log file
for the domain, and I don't know enough about the contents of xend.log
or domain-builder-ng.log to be able to tell if there's anything nasty
being reported there, though nothing jumps out at me as obviously wrong.

Any suggestions for further debugging?
