Description Yanko Kaneti 2006-03-05 09:32:44 UTC
Thats directly after boot of todays (March 4th's) rawhide on a two processor P3
system. The xend service appeared to succesfully start. The xend-debug.log says
Exception starting xend: (111, 'Connection refused'). xend appears to be running
but has not opened any listening sockets as far as I can tell/

# rpm -q xen kernel-xen-hypervisor
xen-3.0.1-0.20060301.fc5.3
kernel-xen-hypervisor-2.6.15-1.2009.4.2_FC5
# uname -r
2.6.15-1.2009.4.2_FC5hypervisor
# ls /dev/kmem -l
ls: /dev/kmem: No such file or directory
# xm list
Error: Error connecting to xend: Connection refused.  Is xend running?
# mknod /dev/kmem c 1 2
# service xend restart
# xm list

Now I after this I tried a xenguest-install but had some trouble with the
bridging. I wonder if that initial failure is not a symptom of a larger problem
that would prevent more things xen not to work.

There are changes upstream to nuke the dep on /dev/kmem -- we're planning to
pull this in

Comment 2 Yanko Kaneti 2006-03-08 18:09:04 UTC
