I just started using xen and need some help getting going. I'm using xen-3.3. So far I've created two kernels by editing configs/Linux.mk so that I have and 2.6.18-8-xenU. The xen kernel has some extra configuration options, the xenU kernel is the default config that comes with the xen distribution.

I'm booted into the xen dom0 kernel and have created a root disk for the domU machine. The bootup screen gets to the point where it says "Continue..." and doesn't get further. I tried using gdbserver-xen but the backtrace I see is useless hex addresses, I can't get any useful info from it. I'm not sure how to debug further. Can anyone provide a tip?

Here is the console from domU:

$ sudo xm console test
