Re: [Xen-devel] Re: Using Debian packages

Here's the difference:

This one works...

> title           Debian GNU/Linux, kernel 2.4.27-2-386
> root            (hd0,0)
> kernel          /vmlinuz-2.4.27-2-386 root=/dev/sda6 ro
No /boot here.

This one doesn't...

> root            (hd0,0)

Path includes /boot

Bear in mind the "root (hd0,0)" directive doesn't tell grub "this is my / 
(root) filesystem", it means "interpret path references relative to the root 
of this partition's filesystem".

On your system /dev/sda1 == (hd0,0) and is your boot partition, so you only 
need to specify the location of a kernel / module within this partition.

Try this in your menu.lst:

title           XenLinux 2.0.5 SMP
root            (hd0,0)
kernel          /xen.gz dom0_mem=131072
module          /xen-linux-2.6.10 root=/dev/sda6 ro console=tty0
