I'm using Debian 5 (lenny) with Xen 3.2-1. When I try to start a Linux guest (installed with debootstrap like this), the VM hangs right after starting crond. This is exactly before the login prompt (which doesn't come up).

1) In the internet, the solution is an extra line in the configuration like extra = 'xencons=tty1'. That works, but isn't there another solution?
2) I'm trying to start the VM via libvirt which uses XML configuration, and I can't get it to work (tried to convert the extra line to <console tty="tty1" /> but that didn't work). This is why I asked for another solution ;)
