           Summary: Ramdisk option in domU config file does not work
           Product: Xen
           Version: unstable
          Platform: Other
        OS/Version: other
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: Hypervisor
        AssignedTo: xen-bugs@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
        ReportedBy: lge@xxxxxxxxxx
                CC: dbarrera@xxxxxxxxxx,hohnbaum@xxxxxxxxxx

I added ramdisk option in domU config file to let it load initrd when domU is 
booting up. I got the follow error message:

# xm create /root/vm1.cfg -c
Using config file "/root/vm1.cfg".
Error: Error creating domain: (0, 'Error')

When I commented the ramdisk option out, the problem went away and I could 
start domU without a problem. Here is the domU config file I used:

# Kernel image file.
kernel = "/boot/vmlinuz-2.6-xenU"

# Optional ramdisk.
#ramdisk = "/boot/initrd-2.6.12-xenU-reiserFS"
ramdisk = "/boot/initrd-2.6.12-xenU"

# Initial memory allocation (in megabytes) for the new domain.
memory = 128

# A name for your domain. All domains must have different names.
name = "vm1"

disk = [ 'phy:sda7,hda1,w' ]

# Set if you want dhcp to allocate the IP address.
# Set netmask.
# Set default gateway.
# Set the hostname.
#hostname= "vm%d" % vmid

# Set root device.
root = "/dev/hda1 ro"

# Sets runlevel 4.
extra = "4"

The xen version is the xen-unstable tree with latest changeset 5814. 

Copying David on this because he is experiencing the same thing as I do.
