Hi all,

New to this list.

I built xen-4.1.1 successfully and can see that it boots from grub with
the kernel /xen.gz line.

I'm using the following kernel (3.0.0-rc2):

http://git.kernel.org/?p=linux/kernel/git/konrad/xen.git and its default
.config file,

which also builds successfully and boots standalone.

When I try to boot it as a dom0 I get a segfault.

I added vga=ask,keep to the kernel /xen.gz line and chose 363 for the mode, and *it boots*.

When using runlevel 3 it seems to perform as if it were bare metal; however, runlevel 5 runs extremely slow, desktop fonts don't render but application fonts do.

It took about 5 minutes to load Thunderbird so I could send this email.

So it does seem to be vga related.

Thanks, all,
Mike Wright
