Hey I am having a tad bit of a problem with installing a guest OS. This is not a full vt system we are using the paravirt for now.


I am trying to use the xen guest config in /etc/xen/$config. This is what mine currently looks like:




kernel = "/boot/vmlinuz-2.6.18-92.el5xen"

ramdisk = "/boot/xen.gz-2.6.18-92.el5"


extra = "ks="


name = "man1"


memory = "256"


root = '/dev/xvda w'


disk = [ 'tap:aio:/vm/man1.img,xvda,w', ]


vif = [ "mac=00:16:3e:34:e8:06,bridge=xenbr0" ]





When I do “xm create man1 –c” I get the following:


Xen virtual console successfully installed as xvc0

Event-channel device installed.

Uniform Multi-Platform E-IDE driver Revision: 7.00alpha2

ide: Assuming 50MHz system bus speed for PIO modes; override with idebus=xx

[root@host_name xen]#



I’m not sure why it just goes back to console without showing an errors. What is the correct xen guest config for installing with a kickstart file?


Thanks for the help guys
