Description of problem:
Running an installation of Debian-6 with grub2 does not give a running
DomU. Most patches for this are included in RHEL5.6, but the following
patch could still be added:
Florian La Roche
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
where can I get the images of Debian 6.0 to install as a PV guest? The only installation I'm having is an ISO image for HVM net installation and nothing else. Do you have any pointers where to find the images for PV guest installation?
basic info is available at http://wiki.debian.org/Xen
Maybe set the following items: memory, name, vif, disk and
change to bootloader="/usr/bin/pygrub" in that script.
Then start an installation with:
xm create -c xm-debian.cfg install=true \
install-extra="auto=true hostname=debian domain=cz.redhat.com"
Maybe also set "install-arch=amd64"...
Then first reboot should be with "xm create -c xm-debian.cfg" that should need
the above fix to work correctly.

Patch to support grub2(hdX/msdosY) style partition definition
this is the patch to support "(hdX, msdosY)" partition syntax for grub. This has been tested on RHEL-5 dom0 with Debian-6.0 PV guest and without this patch applied
it failed with error message that msdos1 is not a valid int but with this patch applied the guest booted up successfully.
QA verified this bug with xen-3.0.3-126.el5:
1. install a PV debian guest os according to comment #2.
2. boot the guest after os installation, the guest could boot successfully.
So change this bug to VERIFIED.
