Thread-topic: Xen Kernel cant find root device - 4 days and no progress :(
I'm still trying to compile my own Xen kernel under Centos 5.2 but boot
always fails with a cannot find volume group "VolGroup00". I have tried
using both the xen.org 3.41 with kernel and using
with patch and Xen 3.41. The error is the same, I really don't know what
causes it. I am compiling in support for LVM and device mapper etc. Does
anyone know what might cause this? Any hints would be much appreciated.

Compile of standard kernel works fine.

I'm considering swapping to Ubuntu or Slackware just avoid this compile
