Hi xen-users!

I have xen 4.1 installed on ubuntu natty by recompiling the
debian-unstable packages.

xm create <configfile> works flawlessly, but xl create <configfile>
seems to mess up handing the disk to qemu.
In the configfile is the following disk statement:

disk = [
'file:/var/lib/xen/images/debian-6.0.1a-amd64-netinst.iso,xvdc:cdrom,r' ]

I can start a virtual machine with xl create <file> but after 30 the
machine is destroyed because qemu has no disk to boot from.
The qemu log in /var/log/xen says:
domid: 7
-videoram option does not work with cirrus vga device model. Videoram
set to 4M.
Using xvdc for guest's hdc
Using file /dev/xen/blktap-2/tapdev0 in read-only mode
qemu: could not open vbd '/local/domain/0/backend/vbd/7/51744/mode' or
hard disk image '/dev/xen/blktap-2/tapdev0' (drv 'phy' format 'raw')

any hints?

thx, Mark
