Description Robert Scheck 2007-05-19 16:32:50 UTC
Description of problem:
I did a Xen installation using virt-manager and after a successfull graphical 
installation stuff failed to boot the machine. I'm getting some errors within 
xend.log but nothing useful for me. File is attached. All I did was just to 
customize the partitioning for one native ext3 partition without LVM and 
without Swap - a situation that should work with every Linux system (and just 
even worked with other Xen systems).

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Everytime for me. Looks like something is broken.

Expected results:
Working things...

It looks like you were attempting to do a restore of the guest, instead of
starting it again.  In virt-manager that was released with RHEL-5, there is no
way to start guests, unfortunately; once you have installed the guest, you need
to go to the command-line and type "xm create <dom>", which should properly
start the domain.  This should be addressed in RHEL 5.1.  If you start the
domain from the command-line, does it work properly?

Yes, this works. Sorry for bothering.

Comment 4 Robert Scheck 2007-08-29 20:12:56 UTC
Unfortunately, Bugzilla doesn't somehow allow me to close this bug report. Can 
somebody do this for me? Thank you.
