Ian: Any idea what could cause this error message (more info below):

"XENBUS: Timeout connecting to device: device/vif/0 (state 1)"

Is this from the domU or the dom0?

This is from the domU.

Do other devices work ok?

Yes, everything else seems to be working fine.

User says replacing 2.6.38/2.6.39 pvops dom0 kernel with xenlinux one
fixes the problem..

2.6.38 didn't have netback, only 2.6.39-rc1 did. Mario, please can you

Should be "device" not "devices", I got this wrong in my original mail.

(I stopped reading here since I think it's all explained by the missing
config option).


Ehm, you are right, my bad, but what about ?

# grep XEN_NETDEV /tmp/linux-

I was under impression that userspace driver would kick in..?

I don't think so, that only happens for disks AFAIK.


So you are telling me that 2.6.38 does not have a working networking on PV guests, but HVM does?
