Thread-topic: [Xen-users] Xen Kernel not booting

I'm not sure if /var/log/xen directory (on the future dom0) is created after an installation of a xen kernel aware, or if it is created the first time you successfully boot your dom0.

Either way, are you sure the xen kernel installation went without problems?
CentOS is a stable linux version, and things should be run out on the fly after installation from their repos.

Here's my grub.conf on a linux version much similar to your CentOS, running xen kernel 2.6.18-92

[root@xxx xen]# more /etc/grub.conf
# grub.conf generated by anaconda
# Note that you do not have to rerun grub after making changes to this file
# NOTICE:  You do not have a /boot partition.  This means that
#          all kernel and initrd paths are relative to /, eg.
#          root (hd0,1)
#          kernel /boot/vmlinuz-version ro root=/dev/sda2
#          initrd /boot/initrd-version.img

Hi Ferreira,


But I can not find log file at the given locations,

looks nothing is written on the xen's log file

What could be the possible reason ?
