Here you go:

    <boot dev='hd'/>

  <clock offset='utc'/>


    <interface type='bridge'>
      <source bridge='eth0'/>

<!-- stub domains don't have access to dom0's ptys, so this is not possible

I was looking at http://libvirt.org/drvxen.html

And realized that "virsh domxml-to-native" may be used to convert the domU configuration to native if necessary.

I am interested in knowing how you incorporated the stubdom-dm loader.

The link above demonstrates Fullyvirtualized guest direct kernel boots, Fullyvirtualized guest BIOS boots, Paravirtualized guest direct kernel boots, and Paravirtualized guest bootloader with pygrub examples.

Non of the examples feature the stubdom-dm loader.

I would greatly appreciate it if you could post a complete and working stubdom HVM domU configuration.

Sorry, I just assumed libvirt was a non-starter. Hope this helps.
