Re: [Xen-users] Problems starting xend

Hi James

The good news is that I now have it working.

I have managed to create a new Domain based on the ttylinux image and
log in as root.

I had to manually sudo mkdir  /var/lib/xen/xend-db 

and then 

sudo mkdir /var/lib/xen/xend-db/domain 


sudo mkdir /var/lib/xen/xend-db/vnet 

as well to get it to start  for some reason ??

BTW I have compiled from source and I am using the 

vmlinuz- and vmlinuz- patched kernels if
that helps.

Many thanks for your help.

It's a very interesting project.
