Hi Xen list!

My question might be pretty dumb but please bear with me :-)
In which way are the different versions of Xen and versions of (Linux) kernels patched with Xen interoperable among each other?

I tried Xen on a Fedora Core 4 system (kernel 2.6.11-1.1369_FC4xen0) and whenever I would start a domU using the official 2.0.6 vmlinuz- or vmlinuz-2.4.30-xenU kernel, I'd get:

Using config file "foo.conf".
Error: Error creating domain: (0, 'Error')

Here are the according entries in xm log:
[2005-06-27 03:41:13 xend] DEBUG (XendDomainInfo:770) init_domain> Created domain=1 name=ttylinux memory=6144 [2005-06-27 03:41:13 xend] INFO (console:94) Created console id=13 domain=1 port=9601 [2005-06-27 03:41:13 xend] WARNING (XendDomainInfo:798) building dom with 1 vcpus [2005-06-27 03:41:14 xend] ERROR (SrvBase:163) op=create: Error creating domain: (0, 'Error')
Traceback (most recent call last):

    val = op_method(op, req)
File "/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/xen/xend/server/SrvDomainDir.py", line 71, in op_create
    raise XendError("Error creating domain: " + str(ex))
XendError: Error creating domain: (0, 'Error')
[2005-06-27 03:41:14 xend] INFO (XendRoot:112) EVENT> xend.console.create [13, 1, 9601]

I tried another domU conf and got the same result with the two kernels from Xen Downloadpage.

Did I miss anything?
