Re: [Fedora-xen] Newby Help

Hi Walter, sorry to hear you're having trouble.

I’m having trouble getting Xen up on Fedora 6. Following the instructions at http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/FedoraXenQuickstartFC6 , I’ve got xend running, but haven’t gotten a viable image running.

I tried (per the above) virt-manager. I guessed that http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/fedora/linux/core/6/x86_64/os/ was a suitable install tree, but when the installer (Anaconda, I guess) gets to some point (it varies with each attempt) it stalls, sometimes complaining about not getting a file.

What type of system are you running this on? Is it 32 or 64 bit? What kernel are you running? (uname -a)

I also tried xm, but haven’t figured out how to deal with the error:

Cannot open root device "sda1"

um... what disk are you presenting to your guest? Installing from the http:// tree would indicate that you're installing a para-virt guest, but it's looking for sda1. Typically the disk inside the guest is known as xvda, which makes me wonder if you're presenting sda1 to the guest as its root. Is that the same root disk that your host is using?

Virsh throws a different error:

Domain not found: xenUnifiedDomainLookupByName

yeah, hate to say this, but the xen logs can be very confusing and hard to read until you get used to the various errors and what they *really* mean sometimes.

I’m befuddled by having tried several different sources, each of which said “it’s soooo easy”, but failing to provide sufficient information to get me past these issues, so I’d be grateful if someone could point me to instructions geared to the meanest understanding.

Yep, it actually is relatively easy, but that is assuming all the requirements are met. Those are usually the hardest parts to figure out!
