Every time

Comment 2 AJ Lewis 2005-05-26 13:01:51 EDT
Hrm...looks like I can make it work by creating the directory
/var/lib/xen/xen-db/migrate - any reason that isn't created by the rpm?
Comment 3 Rik van Riel 2005-05-26 13:35:36 EDT
The RPM doesn't have that directory because it's not created by the "make
install" command that the spec file runs.


Guess I'll send some fixes upstream, as well as fixing it in the FC4 RPM...
Comment 4 Rik van Riel 2005-05-30 11:02:40 EDT
A fix for this issue was added to today's Xen RPM, 2-20050530
Comment 5 AJ Lewis 2005-05-31 11:37:43 EDT
Verified xen-2-20050530 corrects this issue.
