Default Xen issue

Hi,
I ever wrote about XEN on a Post/Thread here (deamonforums), i restart to build a virtual machine with XEN.
I have read this url https://wiki.netbsd.org/tutorials/ho...os_using_xen3/

And of course, i change version of XEN, i try 45 and 46 version of xentools and xenkernel, but my computer reboot and ask the choise number of menu items.
I think that i forgot some item, and while computer reboot i've a black screen i don't know where is the issue.
Where is the log's files for XEN46?
I can do error of XEN's version !
My computer is a XEON with AMD distribution, like this, it's full 64bits.

Regards
Philippe

Just a couple of quick questions
  • What is the menu line from your boot.cfg
  • What version of NetBSD are you running (uname -rm)
  • How did you install xenkernel46

Hi,
thanks for your help !
Just a couple of quick questions

1/ What is the menu line from your boot.cfg/
Quote:
banner=Welcome to NetBSD

banner=
banner=Please choose an option from the following menu:
menu=Boot normally:boot netbsd
menu=Boot single-user:boot netbsd -s
menu=Boot backup kernel:boot onetbsd
menu=Drop to boot promptrompt
menu=Boot Xen with 256MB for dom0:load /netbsd-XEN3_DOM0 console=pc;multiboot /usr/pkg/xen46-kernel/xen.gz dom0_mem=256M
menu=Boot Xen with 256MB for dom0 (serial):load /netbsd-XEN3_DOM0 console=com0;multiboot /usr/pkg/xen46-kernel/xen.gz dom0_mem=256M console=com1 com1=115200,8n1
menu=Boot Xen with dom0 in single-user mode:load /netbsd-XEN3_DOM0 -s;multiboot /usr/pkg/xen46-kernel/xen.gz dom0_mem=256M
timeout=5
default=1
2/ What version of NetBSD are you running (uname -rm)
Quote:
dct-actaris# uname -rm
7.0.2 amd64
dct-actaris#
3/ How did you install xenkernel46
I do make install in /usr/pkgsrc/sysutils/xenkernel46.
and cp /usr/pkg/xen46-kernel/xen.gz /
and download dom3 !

Regards
Philippe

the Xen boot lines in your boot.cfg refer to the edition of xenkernel in /usr/pkg/... Not to the version you claim to have installed in /.

I would be surprised of the boot loader (/boot) is smart enough to be able to traverse the filesystem well enough to find it in /us/pkg/xen46-kernel/, assuming /usr/pkg is on the same filesystem as /.

Correct the path in the multiboot portion to /xen.gz and try again.
