Comment 1 Mark McLoughlin 2006-07-03 11:09:02 EDT
When doing:

  $> xenguest-install.py -f foo.img

things seem to work fine (e.g. the image gets created if it doesn't exit) except
the device isn't actually exported to the guest.

Problem turns out to be that Xen needs an absolute path.

Attached is a simple patch to make any relative paths absolute.
