Hi All,

I just tried to create a DomU using the following method... (I normally use the Xen install kernel when I create CentOS domus, but when I tried that with the PXE image, that had the same effect as below). This is the first time I have created a Fedora domu in ages... years, even.

virt-install \
              --paravirt \
              --name demo \
              --ram 500 \
              --file /xen/demo.img \
              --file-size 6 \
              --nographics \
              --location http://mirror.ox.ac.uk/sites/download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/fedora/linux/releases/11/Fedora/x86_64/os/

Whilst it worked, I got no chance to set any packages and I ended up with a pretty empty domu, with no networking, etc. In fact, examining the console I don't get much in the way of output, compared to me CentOS domu's.

I've had a quite a google and couldn't really figure out what I am doing wrong. I am sure I am doing something stupid, so please put me out of my misery. I think I have been living in a CentOS comfort zone for too long!

Thanks in advance,
