Hi, again. :)


I am sorry. I misunderstood your question.


I think your problem is foreign to the xenconsole.


Did you use the below kernel config file for Domain 1?  


Please check the option,


    CONFIG_CMDLINE="xencons=ttyS rdinit=/sbin/init" ,


in the kernel config file.


And, please check your root file system of "Domain 1"

Are there below device files?

Title : Re: [XenARM] [Question] about xenconsole



Did you use the below kernel config file?  


Please check the option, CONFIG_UNIX98_PTYS=y, in the kernel config file.


If you did it, check the followings:


  1. Do you make device file?




  2. Do you mount "/dev/pts"?

    > mount -t devpts devpts /dev/pts


Now, please run xenconsole again.


I hope this could help you.

Have a nice day. :)





I am stick to Freescale Xen-ARM.

I could launch two guest domains, but serial console seems not working.


It seems like xend and xenconsoled runs successfully because I can see the display device prints out basic image [Domain 0/1] when I switch foreground domain.


But, in the serial console, it prints out

"Warning: unable to open an initial console." and never displays login-shell.


BTW, why the following line has been commented out?


In linux-sparse directory,


629 //         tty_register_device(xencons_driver, 0, NULL);


Is it related with the xenconsole problem?


waiting for your helpful comments!


ps. are you working on netback/front, currently?

It seems much closer to xen original tree in this version.
