------- Comment #3 from konrad.wilk@xxxxxxxxxx  2011-08-29 08:37 -------
If you extract the vmlinuz and initramfs from the guest and stick them
directly in the guest file, as so:

name        = 'gentoo64'
#  Virtual FrameBuffer + extra configuration
vfb         = [ 'type=vnc,vncdisplay=20' ]
extra       = 'ro ro console=hvc0 root=/dev/xvda2 video=uvesafb"
kernel  = '/mnt/karmic/xen/boot/vmlinuz-2.6.38-gentoo-r6"
ramdisk  = '/mnt/karmic/xen/boot/initrd.img"
memory      = '1256'
disk        = [ 'file:/mnt/karmic/xen/gentoo64/disk.img,xvda,w' ]

on_poweroff = 'destroy'
on_reboot   = 'restart'
on_crash    = 'restart'
vif         = [ 'mac=e6:1b:4e:4c:d8:66, bridge=virbr0' ]

does it boot?

Asking this, b/c there was bug in pv-grub where it would wrongly initialize the
pagetables for the guest.
