Re: [Xen-users] XEN 4.0.1 + pv_ops kernel DomU issues

Hi Richie,

Well no LVM on the DomU, kernel just trying to look for vg0 which is present on Dom0 but not DomU, tried omitting the lvm modules from being added to initrd image but it still tries to load a non-existent vg.

Also I wanted to point out that I'm creating my initrd.img from my running Dom0 kernel which is working good but when I try to boot a DomU with it and the custom initrd.img I get the mentioned error.

Thank you for your quick replies guys.

Just curious... isn't pvops kernel using xvdX naming for the domU
devices?  Your domU root is /dev/sda1 so did you try root=/dev/xvda1
instead?  Of course you also need to adjust your domU /etc/fstab file
accordingly.  Correct me if I am wrong... ...

It is.  However, if he has installed LVM2 filesystem(s) inside the disk image then the initrd may need to be updated to have dm-mod (if not built in to the booting kernel) and lvm2 support.
