Dear Fajar,

xm has been deprecated in Xen 4.2-unstable changeset 25070. It doesn't
work in xen 4.2-unstable.
deprecated != doesn't work. Please do as Fajar suggests and try it. If
it works with xm but not xl then this is a useful data point.

Any ideas? There has been very few documentation on XL domain
There is documentation in the Xen tree which is published online at:

These are linked to from the very first google hit from "xen xl
documentation" ( http://xen.org/support/generated.html ).

There are also several xlexample configurations provided in the Xen
source tree.


configuration files on the internet.
Does xm work (using the same config file)?

If yes, xen-devel will be a good place to submit bug report, with the
emphasis on xl bug.

I have found a bug with xl in Xen 4.2-unstable changeset 25070.

When I try to start Linux paravirtualized guests in Xen 4.2-unstable, they CANNOT start at all and exit IMMEDIATELY.

When I switched to Xen 4.1.3-rc1-pre, Linux PV guests start successfully, albeit with a change to the disk parameter in the xl configuration file.

I have managed to install Fedora 16 amd64 in Xen 4.1.3-rc1-pre with xl, although the pxeboot installation takes a VERY LONG TIME, lasting numerous hours.

This is a bug with xl in Xen 4.2-unstable.

Please help to copy to xen-devel.

Thank you very much.

Yours sincerely,
