I'm having the same problem but I'm using pv-grub to boot the VM, How do you pass the extra = "console=tty console=hvc0" when I already have extra = "(hd1)/boot/grub/menu.lst"?? I tried the following:

extra = "(hd1)/boot/grub/menu.lst console=tty console=hvc0"

But it looks like the trailing statements are ignored.

When I boot the vm I get console output but no login prompt in the VNC window. The xm console <vm> works fine.

Yeah !

add line to vm configuration (/etc/xen):
extra = "console=hvc0"


extra = "console=tty console=hvc0"

I see boot login + prompt.

mount vm image and add following lines (IN VM IMAGE, NOT DOM0 CONFIG).
file /etc/inittab:
7:23:respawn:/sbin/getty 38400 hvc0

I haven't tried this line, thanks

file /etc/securetty:

I belive this is enough to get login prompt.

Yes it does !

Juste one thing :

With "xm console vm" i see lines like

Waiting for /dev to be fully populated...done.
Setting parameters of disc: (none).
Setting the system clock.
Unable to set System Clock to: Tue Aug 24 15:34:58 UTC 2010 (warning).

But i don't see them with VNC. Only lines starting with a timer like
"[    9.063164]".

Thanks a lot !
