i tried it with an initrd too. i copied the one of my dom0 to the domU. in
my config i have set the parameter ramdisk like this:
ramdisk = "/boot/initrd-2.6.20-1.2948.fc6xen.img"
that didn´t work too.
after that i generated a new ramdisk for my domU:
$ mkinitrd -f --with=ext3 --preload=ext3 --with=xennet --builtin=aic7xxx
--builtin=serverworks --preload=xenblk --omit-raid-modules
--omit-lvm-modules --fstab=/home/user/mnt/etc/fstab /boot/xen-initrd.img
and changed the ramdisk parameter according to the filename of the newly
created ramdisk. i copied the ramdisk to /boot of my domU.
my logical root volume of the domU was mounted in /home/user/mnt.
another question i have: where do i have to copy the initrd? does it need to
be in the /boot-directory of the dom0 or the /boot-directory of the domU?
i got it working right now. after i tried the different ramdisks, i added
those parameters to the config:
extra = "ro selinux=0 3"
vcpus = 1
vif = [ 'mac=00:16:3e:1a:c5:ad, bridge=xenbr0' ]
no i tried it again and it worked. but i don´t know i exactly why but it
works. when the domU used to crash i saw following line in the log:
[2007-05-22 17:00:41 xend 2900] DEBUG (blkif:24) exception looking up device
number for sda3: [Errno 2] No such file or directory: '/dev/sda3'
maybe the newly created initrd solved the problem.
