Hi mailing list,

i have some problems to run a debian 4 on a sles 10 SP1 dom0.


My configuration of the debian domu looks like this:

disk = [ 'file:/vm/domains/debian-4-testing/disk0,xvda1,w' ,'file:/vm/domains/debian-4-testing/disk1,xvdb1,w' ] memory = 1024
vcpus = 1
builder = 'linux'
name = 'Debian-4-Testing'
vif = [ 'mac=00:16:3e:cd:ed:4b' ]
localtime = 0
on_poweroff = 'destroy'
on_reboot = 'restart'
on_crash = 'restart'
extra = ' TERM=xterm'
kernel = '/boot/vmlinuz-xen'
ramdisk = '/boot/initrd-xen'
root = '/dev/xvda1'

If tried to install the debian on a block device via debootstrap like on this page http://blogs.globalinfinity.de/?p=47.

But if I start the Debian guest the boot sequence stops after NET: Registered protocol family 17

Bootdata ok (command line is root=/dev/xvda1  TERM=xterm)

Does anyone know what this means?  Or
