Thread-topic: [Xen-users] Xwindows or Freenx in a guest domain
You have got to be kidding me :( I could have sworn I checked that at
least 10 times. That was the problem sadly. I used cp -ax
/{dev,lib,...the rest}/ to copy all the dirs over for my guest domain,
did I not do it correctly? Do you think I will have other permission
problems then...ugg, the short yellow bus is here to pick me up :(

On another note, any idea what the guest domain doesn't see any of the

I suggest you start with that. /tmp should be world-writable. I'm 
guessing you didn't preserve permissions and owner while creating 
dom-U's filesystem. "cp -a" or "tar" or "rsync -a"  should do the trick.
