Subject: [Xen-devel] boot ok, can't login.
I was able to boot with a loopback filesystem. Lvm is strange.
I can seem to get past this point in the console:
kjournald starting. Commit interval 5 seconds
EXT3-fs: mounted filesystem with ordered data mode.
VFS: Mounted root (ext3 filesystem) readonly.
Freeing unused kernel memory: 60k freed
Warning: unable to open an initial console.
None of init seems to run.
It seems now I have the same problem with you on my FC3 system. I
built the xen2.0 on FC3 using gcc3.3. Previously I cant build it by
gcc3.4.2, which is default gcc version of FC3. then people advised me
lowering the gcc version, I did that, then there is no error during
But then I have the same problems as what you have now.
I had another machine, which is using FC2, and runing xen2.0 unstable.
so I tried transfering those boot files: xen.gz, linuz-2.6.9-xen0
and so on to that FC2 system under /boot. It can boot up and go to a
console,although the the console dumps it cant find some modules, it
can still go to the login.
The hardware of these two machines are totally same, the only
different is one is installed FC2, the other is installed FC3. I am
not sure whether it is the FC peoblems.
Anyone has suggestions?
Thanks a lot!
Here is the grub.conf I am using on my FC3 machine. The similar one
is working on mty FC2 machine, I dont know what's wrong with the tty.
